Annual Fund

The generosity of Riverbend School’s supporters enhances the quality of our students’ educational experience each and every day. Your contribution enables us to invest in everything from technology and teaching resources to enrichment activities and financial aid. Together they form the foundation of Riverbend’s academic excellence and keep our programming strong.

2017-2018 Annual Fund

One of the great success stories coming out of last year was the Annual Fund — not only meeting but exceeding our goals in parent participation and total giving. Last year 100% of our faculty and staff donated, as did 90% of our families. 

Our campaign name — Mind the Gap — reflects our intent to increase awareness of and giving to the per-student gap between tuition and the cost of a Riverbend education, projected to be at $1,359 per student for 2016-17. While we understand that not everyone can give to the gap, we would welcome those that are able to consider giving to the per-student gap for each student enrolled.

Mind the Gap Levels of Support:
  • Diamond: $10,000 +
  • Platinum: $5,000 +
  • Gold: $2,500 +
  • Silver: $1,000 +
  • Bronze: $500 +
  • Supporter : $25 – $499
