Rio Grande School Annual Fund

At Rio Grande School, we create a space where students love to learn and where faculty and parents work together to help children grow into compassionate, inquisitive, independent, well-rounded citizens of the world. Together, we provide a dynamic learning environment in which students thrive emotionally and succeed academically.  We want to thank you for being a part of the Rio Grande School community and for all that you do to support our efforts.

Like all independent schools, Rio Grande School depends on the fundraising efforts of our community. The money that we raise through the Annual Fund impacts all of our students by supporting our educators and our programming. Your contribution supports competitive teacher pay, professional development, robust tuition assistance, and the added personnel and activities that make the RGS education the leader in Santa Fe.

Our Annual Fund goal for this academic year is $225,000 with 100% participation from all families and staff. This is how your contribution will make a difference.

The Annual Fund:

  • Supports integrated, co-curricular classes and adventure learning experiences.
  • Expands professional development opportunities for our educators.
  • Competitive teacher salaries.
  • Ensures that our faculty members receive meaningful training aligned with RGS Core Values.
  • Allows our classrooms to maintain a low student-teacher ratio. 
  • Maintains the safety and beauty of our campus—the place where our children spend the better part of each day.

Please help us reach this year’s goal with your tax-deductible contribution. We welcome gifts at every level and each gift makes an immediate impact.  All contributions, whether $25 or $25,000, make a difference. Donations made by December 31, 2022 are tax-deductible for this calendar year. 

We deeply appreciate your historical generosity to our fundraising efforts, and ask you to consider making a donation that matches or surpasses your Annual Fund Donation last year and for our new families,  please consider giving in proportion to your capacity. With your continued support, we aim to achieve, and hopefully surpass, our Annual Fund goal.

We appreciate each and every member of the Rio Grande School community and sincerely thank you in advance for your generous contribution to our students and our school.
