Riverside Presbyterian Day School

RPDS Advancement

Riverside Presbyterian Day School fosters intellectual curiosity and an affirmation of the teachings of the Christian faith, offers diverse leadership and service opportunities, and provides unique experiences inside the classroom and beyond. This is possible because of our inclusive, passionate, and trusting community, because of our deeply engaged faculty, and because of our community’s collaborative energy and generous financial support.

As is common in most private schools, RPDS offers several opportunities to receive philanthropic support. Our primary fundraising program is The Promise Fund, the School’s annual giving campaign, which encompasses an additional opportunity for corporate support through the Business Partners Program.

Planned Giving is an avenue for donors to express their philanthropy to RPDS through gifts that memorialize their intentions in a meaningful way. Gifts to the School’s endowment through special designated or unrestricted Funds provide ongoing financial support that enhance many areas of operations.

Our primary community-building events, Capers and Duathlon, provide avenues for all RPDS constituents to participate in strengthening our connections to each other and to build awareness around RPDS’s commitment to remain a strong corporate citizen. Your involvement matters and makes a significant difference in the educational experience of each student. We encourage and welcome all within the RPDS community—our parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, alumni and their families, friends, and businesses—to explore the variety of opportunities to support our special School.
