Donors may choose to direct their gift to one of several established funds, or work with the Advancement Office to create additional named funds.
William H. Gray III Memorial Scholarship Fund
An endowed fund for underprivileged students of diverse backgrounds with learning disabilities. Reverend William Gray III was a dynamic leader in American politics, president of the United Negro College Fund, a reverend at the Bright Hope Baptist Church, and a long-time friend of Riverview School. His dedication to correct injustice and bring hope to those in need inspired all who knew and worked with him.
Jeanne Pacheco Scholarship Fund
Jeanne Pacheco embarked on her career at the School as a reading specialist and during her long tenure at Riverview served as Director of Education, Director of Admissions and Placement, and Assistant Head of School. Jeanne has forged a trail that few, if any, have duplicated in the history of Riverview. The Jeanne Pacheco Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in Jeanne's honor upon her retirement in 2013. This fund will support students, as Jeanne supported Riverview for so many years, continuing the tradition of excellence she espoused at Riverview.
