Annual Fund Scholarships

Donors who make gifts of $10,000 or more to the Annual Fund may elect to establish a named Annual Fund Scholarship, which allows the school to cover part of the cost of a one-year scholarship for a student selected by Riverdale Country School. Similar to an endowed fund, this opportunity allows donors to specify the name of their scholarship. They will receive communications from the Development Office and student recipient throughout the year. Contact the Development Office to learn more or to direct your annual support toward tuition at Riverdale.
