The RPDS Fund

The bold vision and exciting progress of Riverside Presbyterian Day School are possible because of the support of a community with strong philanthropic roots dating back 75 years. Our strength has always relied on our tradition of collaboration and generosity, and we hope to continue that tradition with this year’s RPDS Fund.

The RPDS Fund is our School’s top fundraising priority. Every year, we invite parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends to participate in this annual giving campaign by making a charitable gift to our School. The RPDS Fund campaign is an opportunity for our community to recommit to a promise of trust—trust in a healthy partnership between our parents, faculty and staff, alumni and friends in continuing, improving and sustaining a tradition of excellence for our students that is the foundation of the RPDS relationship. 

Gifts to the RPDS Fund allow us to maintain the standard of excellence in our programs that is the hallmark of an RPDS education. This year’s RPDS Fund will also allow us to move forward with a greater emphasis on providing a healthy and safe environment for our students and faculty, strengthening our community through connectedness and inclusion, and sustaining our commitment to educational innovation.

We invite you to join us in supporting this important annual giving campaign. Your generosity keeps us moving forward in fulfilling our mission to educate the mind, nurture the spirit and foster the development of the whole child. We sincerely thank you!
