Thank you for your interest in giving to Rio Grande School to ensure we can continue to challenge each child's intellect, to inspire each child's imagination, and to nurture each child's desire to learn. The School's excellent programming is, in part, made possible by the generosity of supportive parents, employees, and friends. Rachel Gantt, Associate Head of School-Advancement, oversees all fundraising, events and activities, including the Annual Fund, capital campaigns, and other fundraising programs.
Gifts of any size are important to Rio Grande School because they support its mission, people, and programs. There are a wide range of giving options that can help you make a gift that will maximize benefits to you and the school. In addition to cash, many other assets may be used to fund a gift, including appreciated stock, personal property, real estate, and retirement plan funds. You may make your gift so that it is used immediately or you may give through other methods, such as life income plans that provide income, tax, and personal benefits. Please be in touch with the director of advancement to learn more about these methods of giving.
