List of 4 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: Why is philanthropy so important at RCS?

    Your gifts impact the day-to-day life of RCS students and provide support for our academic, athletic, and arts programming that strengthens each aspect of each child's educational experience. Your support serves as a powerful testament to the depth of connection the community feels for this wonderful school.
  • Q: How does my gift make a difference?

    Your gift powers the people, tools, and technology needed for students to thrive. Our 2023-24 tuition covers 85% percent of the cost to educate each child at RCS. The difference between tuition and the actual cost is called "the Gap." When we successfully bridge "the Gap" students directly benefit from enhanced programming that creates once-in-a-lifetime experiences. 
  • Q: Why is it so important to give to RCS each year?

    Every gift truly counts in helping the school to bridge the gap between what tuition covers and the actual cost of educating each child. Our community’s collective generosity propels our mission forward and allows us to address new and emerging needs. A high level of community participation reflects the strength of our community and a shared commitment to all RCS students. 
  • Q: Are there other reasons to give?

    The tax advantages of giving to RCS benefit the many people who choose to support The Annual Fund. Our supporters take pride in both the recognition that comes with being listed with the school’s donors and being among the many community members who assist the school in delivering its mission each year.
