Ridleian Fund

It typically comes as a surprise to most that tuition only covers 88 percent of a student’s Ridley education. Non-profit in nature, Ridley College depends on the collective support of donors, like you, to continually offer superior educational experiences. 
The Ridleian Fund identifies key priorities that will have the largest impact on our students—today and in the future. 
We believe it is the duty of all Ridleians to help ensure that future generations have boundless opportunity and are supported in their quest to transform our globe.
