Annual Fund Updates

Thank you for supporting the 2015-16 Annual Fund!

We are grateful to the record 18.5% of Riverdale alumni who donated to the 2015-16 Annual Fund, which closed on June 30, 2016. With your support -- and that of our parents, grandparents, past parents, and faculty/staff -- we raised more than $4.9 million in funding for our most critical needs: everything from financial aid to classroom supplies to co-curricular activities to faculty development. Riverdale could not provide transforming educational experiences without your meaningful investment. Thank you!
