You make a difference!
The most important fundraising initiative at RCDS is our Annual Giving Campaign, which kicks off in the fall. 100% of your gift to Annual Giving provides extraordinary opportunities for learning and discovery while supporting the programs that make RCDS special such as Family-Style Dining, Experiential Learning, The Performing Arts, Academics and Character Education personalized for each student.


Within Annual Giving, donors can direct their gift to a specific area including*:
• Athletics
• The Arts
• Caring for our Historic Campus
• Community Service
• Teaching and Learning
• Technology
• Tuition Assistance
…or the Area of Greatest Need

Every gift matters!
When we join together to invest in our students’ future, the opportunities are limitless. Your generous support makes RCDS a school like no other! If you are only able to make one gift a year, we ask that you make Annual Giving the priority.

*Annual Giving supports the faculty and students through the schools operating budget. Should directed contributions exceed an area’s budgeted limit, the school’s administration reserves the option to direct the use of such contributions to the area of greatest need.
