Development Update

 THANKS TO THE MANY OF YOU WHO DONATED for Giving Tuesday this week. You helped Riverside earn the entire $2,500 match and our parent participation percentage is soaring higher.

Once again this year, we have a $5,000 challenge grant in place if we reach 100 percent participation like last year. Thanks in advance to anyone considering a donation during this season of giving.

The Riverside community has such a wonderful philanthropic spirit. Thanks also to all of you who helped contribute to the food drive for FeedMore before Thanksgiving. Your contributions totaled 394 items weighing 380 pounds! Special thanks to Franklin Bell for delivering the bounty! We will be having another food drive on Friday, Dec. 18 for the tacky sweater/pajama day, and I’m already looking forward to that.

— Leo Rohr
Director of Development 

Note: The Head of School message will return next week.
