Our Advancement Team

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 RPDS 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 Riverside Kids 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.

About "One Word, One Riverside"
For almost 75 years, RPDS families have put their faith into our teachers, staff, and school. As you drop your child off each day you have faith that RPDS will nurture, protect, and serve them. As we embark on a monumental year at RPDS, we ask you to consider giving to both our RPDS Fund and Cornerstone Campaign. Your generous gift will support our mission to educate the mind, nurture the spirit and foster the development of the whole child.

From now through December 31, we encourage all members of the Riverside community to participate in the “One Word, One Riverside” appeal. By providing a gift to both The RPDS Fund and the Riverside Cornerstone Capital Campaign, you are ensuring the best educational experience possible for our students today and in the years to come.
