Rivers for Rivers

This campaign ends on June 30 at 11:59PM EDT

The COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching effects on our world—and frankly, we are not immune from those effects. The Rivers School is committed to meeting the emerging and ongoing needs of our students and our community. But the cancelation of our Annual Parents’ League Auction and Alumni Golf Tournament, coupled with the loss of expected revenue from sources such as campus rentals and auxiliary programs, we are facing a projected budgetary loss of $500,000—a number that in all likelihood will increase in the coming weeks and months. 

Many in the community have asked how they can help. To that end, we are launching a new initiative: Rivers for Rivers. This initiative, which is a part of The Rivers Fund, will allow Rivers to address these unanticipated needs, which include:

  • Supporting students facing expenses or personal hardships that make their academic experience more difficult;  
  • Underwriting the anticipated greater need for financial aid next year;  
  • Investing in new and emerging educational technology and enhanced training to support a dynamic, engaging curriculum.

Please consider making a gift to the Rivers for Rivers initiative. Our students, faculty, staff, and community members need our support more than ever. Won’t you help us come together at this unprecedented time?
