Annual Fund Campaign

It typically comes as a surprise to most that tuition only covers 84% of a student’s Ridley education. As an independent school that is non-profit in nature, Ridley relies on contributions from our community to help bridge this gap and provide one of the top educational experiences in the country. Contributions made to our school through the Annual Fund Campaign go towards funding capital projects, as well as scholarships and bursaries. 
Your gift to this year’s Annual Fund will strengthen our sense of community by creating three environments where our students can flourish:

  • Athletic Weather Shelters

    By giving to this project you will be helping to raise a roof over our athletes’ and coaches’ heads, protecting them from whatever Mother Nature may bring.

Ridley always welcomes contributions to our endowment, which will help provide tomorrow’s leaders with an opportunity to flourish that they might otherwise not have had.
