The Promise of a Riverview Education
The promise of a Riverview education is a richer, fuller life for our students – a life filled with options and opportunities, underpinned by a strong, positive self-image. Prepared with a Riverview education, our alumni live, work, and grow as healthy individuals and productive members of their community. This is the premise upon which Riverview School was founded, and an abiding commitment that is being realized on our campus right now.
Riverview School has a long and distinguished history of philanthropic support dating back to its inception in 1957.  The lasting impact of this School is reflected each year in the philanthropic investment made by friends, alumni, faculty, staff and families. Your gifts allow each new generation of students to experience a caring community where they are supported in embracing new challenges, mastering new skills, developing life-long friendships, and learning how to view themselves as capable and competent young people.
Gifts to the Annual Fund and to the Gala comprise 8% of the operating budget, and while we rely on leadership gifts to inspire us all and lay the foundation for successful fundraising, every gift of every size is essential to reaching our goals. We are grateful for the support of the entire Riverview community in sustaining and strengthening the programs and experiences that distinguish a Riverview education.
“We are so grateful for the opportunities our daughter has had to grow and thrive at Riverview.  With support, underpinned by high expectations from her teachers and residential staff, Elena has been encouraged to stretch her thinking and her abilities. It is a delight to see the confidence she has developed, and the accomplishments this had led to. We are proud to support the endowment to expand Riverview’s excellence, so more students and their families will be able to experience the profound impact of a Riverview education.”  -- Parents
