At Riverdale, annual giving by alumni, parents, and friends closes the gap between actual operating expenses and funds raised from tuition and endowment income. These funds support all aspects of school life, including salaries and benefits for teachers and staff, financial aid, academic programs, library acquisitions, updated technology and equipment, co-curricular activities, after-school programs and sports, and general maintenance and supplies. The Annual Fund is the lifeblood of every institution and makes an immediate impact on today’s students. We—and they—are very grateful for the support we receive each year from all the members of the Riverdale community. Thank you!
