This is the main source of support for our school, bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Riverbend education. Your participation is a vote of support and confidence in us and strengthens the Riverbend community.
While the annual fundraising calendar coincides with our school’s fiscal year, July 1-June 30, all gifts are tax-deductible for the calendar year in which they are made.
A special way to give is to make a donation in honor or memory of someone you hold dear. Sometimes, a family will consider this way to honor a Riverbend teacher. We value and appreciate every contribution. Thank you!
Please visit this year’s Annual Fund page for more information.
Gala & Auction
Riverbend holds an annual auction to help raise additional funds for our school. This year’s auction will be an online event and will feature classroom artwork, teacher experiences and gift certificates.
The 2020 event details will be revealed later this fall. Stay tuned!
Classroom Wish Lists
Classroom teachers and specialists have created wish lists of items they would like for their classroom or program. Donations to this fund will directly enhance the experience for all students. Wish lists will be available starting in mid-November.
Riverbend is currently holding a capital campaign to raise funds for the construction of our new classroom and gymnasium buildings. Are all welcome and encouraged to participate! Please contact Deb Hall for more information.
Major Gifts & Planned Giving
