Rivendell School has been educating children since 1976. We are fortunate to always be surrounded by generous and caring families. Tuition and fees provide most of the cost of a Rivendell education, but the remainder comes from fundraising income and from the Rivendell Annual Fund. These funds provide additional support to the teachers, staff and programs that make Rivendell such an amazing place to learn and grow. Rivendell School depends on the generosity of our entire community: parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, business partners and friends to support our unique learning environment and individualized programs.
Rivendell Annual Fund
The Rivendell Annual Fund Drive takes place in the Fall each year. Families, friends and alumni receive a letter and charitable donation form and instructions on how to give. Rivendell is a 501(c) 3 not-for profit organization and all gifts are tax-deductible.
You may donate to the Annual Fund, or at any time, on our Donation page.

Annual Events that Support Rivendell
Rivendell Fun Run - In this fall event, students collect sponsors who pledge a monetary amount for each lap the student runs. On the day of the Fun Run, students are cheered on by teachers, classmates and parents as they complete as many laps as they can. Students then collect the pledged amounts from their sponsors. Proceeds from the Fun Run are designated for a specific campaign that directly benefits the students, such as new technology, musical instruments, playground equipment, etc.
Spring Soirèe (Silent Auction and Gala) - This event is a fun night for parents, alumni, staff and friends of Rivendell School to gather together and participate in festivities, and a silent auction to benefit our school. It is held in early spring. Donations to the silent auction are encouraged and welcome. Proceeds from the Spring Soirèe are designated for specific school improvement projects (for example, office and commons remodel, or upgraded building security).
