Ways to Give

Your support of Riverdale allows us to provide a unique and meaningful education for today's students and future generations. There are several ways to give to our school, and we are happy to help you find the way that will be most beneficial to you. Opportunities include Annual Giving, Planned Giving, Capital and Endowed Support, and Volunteerism.

Annual Giving

Gifts to Riverdale's Annual Fund provide the school with unrestricted operating support for needs ranging from financial aid to faculty salaries, from studio art supplies to athletic equipment, and from innovative classroom technologies to the maintenance of our beautiful campuses. Unrestricted annual giving also allows Riverdale the flexibility to pursue critical new initiatives and programs that will serve to enrich the educational experience for all of our students.

Planned Giving

Donors who choose to make planned or deferred gifts to the school leave a lasting impact on Riverdale and create a legacy that will have an important effect on students for generations to come. They can also comprise a financial plan that provides the donor or heirs with significant tax or financial benefits.

Capital and Endowed Support

Gifts for specific capital projects or endowed funds help keep Riverdale strong well into the future. They can be unrestricted or have specific designations set by the donor and can be used to support a variety of educational programs, curricular initiatives, building and renovation projects, or financial aid needs.

Volunteer

There are several opportunities available for alumni, parents, and friends to volunteer in support of the school. Annual Fund volunteers make vital connections with their peers and encourage them to join them in giving back to Riverdale.


Planned gifts such as trusts and annuities strengthen the University and provide income to you or your family.  You can also benefit Princeton through your will. Review and request sample bequest language, and be inspired by some great Princeton legacies. - See more at: http://giving.princeton.edu/ways-give#sthash.O7ksSf6W.dpuf
