Give to Rivendell
As you know, Rivendell operates on a shoestring budget, and because of God’s abundant provision, the generosity of many, and the wise and careful stewardship of our Board, faculty, and staff, we have covered our costs every year.
Rivendell’s founders determined that we would be a school that would live within our means. To that end, tuition at Rivendell covers 93% of the cost to educate our children and, therefore, 7% of our annual operating needs must be brought in through fundraising. The Annual Fund accomplishes this goal through the generosity of current and former parents and alumni. This money goes directly into Rivendell’s operating budget and helps to cover many important costs such as teacher salaries, classroom expenses, building mortgage and maintenance, office staff, and other expenses. Our Annual Fund goal this year as in years past is $100,000.
The objectives of the Annual Fund have not changed. We seek 100% participation of the current Rivendell families so that we each take part financially, no matter the amount, to support the school. And we invite all friends of Rivendell School to partner with us by prayerfully, and if possible financially, contributing. We seek to honor the Lord with whatever we receive by using it toward the faithful implementation of our mission: helping children explore God’s world and discover their place in it.
Please prayerfully consider what you are able to give to this year’s Annual Fund, and thank you in advance for your investment in the lives of our children.
