Riverdale School Foundation
The Riverdale School Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1994 with the singular purpose of supporting Riverdale schools.
The foundation is separate from the Riverdale School District and the Parent Teacher Club. Money raised by the Foundation helps maintain Riverdale’s small class sizes and broad curriculum. Thanks to generous support from Riverdale parents and community members, classes like PE, art, music, library, and technology still thrive at the grade school, and the high school continues to have a wide range of electives.
Up to and including the 2017-18 school year, the foundation had raised a total of more than $21 million for Riverdale schools. To raise those funds, the Riverdale School Foundation conducts an Annual Campaign every fall. Donations to the Annual Campaign are used to bridge the gap between what the state provides for school funding and what a Riverdale education actually costs, a shortfall that can run as high as $5,000 per student.
Riverdale families have a long tradition of supporting their schools, and our children are fortunate to attend school in a district that prioritizes exemplary education.
