Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the single most beneficial way to support the Riviera Ridge community. Our plans for the future are progressive and ambitious to ensure continued growth and development of the School and to meet the needs of current and future families. Education, like the world, is constantly changing and so here at Riviera Ridge, we are constantly trailblazing. 

The Annual Fund directly supports the school’s annual operating budget and improves academics, athletics, science and technology, the arts, as well as enhancing our facilities, increasing faculty salaries, and supporting tuition assistance. We cannot be the outstanding school that we are without everyone’s support of the Annual Fund. Together we can all make a profound impact; small steps to a big future!

 Endowment & Tuition Assistance

The purpose of an endowment at Riviera Ridge is to provide a permanent, reliable, and sustaining source of funding to support our educational mission. Riviera Ridge appreciates gifts to the endowment as an important way to contribute to the long-term financial stability of the school.

With adequate, wisely invested endowment funds, this makes the school more resilient when faced with conditions beyond its control. In this ever-evolving world of unforeseen events, this is essential. Endowment funds have been established by donors to support a variety of student, faculty, and tuition assistance initiatives. Assets in these funds can be temporarily or permanently restricted according to the donor’s wishes. Please contact Katrina Sprague, Director of Development and Community Engagement for more information if you are interested in establishing or supporting an endowment fund.
