RCDS Fundraising Policy

Annual Giving is a tradition at The Rumson Country Day School and the single-most important and impactful fundraising opportunity of the year. It is a tax-deductible and critical part of the financial model of independent schools like RCDS, bridging the gap between tuition and the true cost of a child’s education. The Rumson Country Day School asks for all families to participate in Annual Giving.

The Rumson Country Day School recognizes the need to limit the number and scope of fundraising initiatives, solicitations, and appeals in a given year. The Rumson Country Day School has thereby established a school policy requiring any constituent of RCDS to receive prior approval from the Director of Development before undertaking any such effort within the RCDS community. Please feel free to contact Missy Falkenberg, Director of Development, at mfalkenberg@rcds.org with any questions.
