Like most independent schools, RCS relies on tax-deductible gifts to meet its immediate needs. Tuition revenues at RCS do not cover the entire cost of running the School. The remainder of the budget is funded by endowment income, income from facilities rentals, funds raised at the bi-annual school auction, and the Annual Fund. Of these, the Annual Fund is by far the most significant.
Throughout our 100-year history, Rippowam Cisqua School has benefitted from a strong tradition of giving.Through the Annual Fund, this tradition has been maintained by each generation for the well being of the generations to come.
Every Gift Matters
Every Annual Fund gift is important and recognized in our overall success. The very act of participating with a gift of any size positions the School to attract support from foundations and corporations, so a single gift can actually spur additional gifts. Annual Fund support has a profound impact on the quality of the teaching and learning that takes place every day, and demonstrates confidence and belief in an RCS education.
