Annual Giving makes a direct impact on every student at RCDS.

Like all independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of an RCDS education. Voluntary giving from the entire Gator community ensures our school is fully funded.

Annual Giving impacts every part of the student experience at RCDS. Small classes, phenomenal faculty, and Signature Traditions like Family Style Dining are all made possible by voluntary gifts that supplement tuition and fees. Like many independent schools, Annual Giving covers a percentage of annual operating expenses, which helps keep tuition lower than it might otherwise be. Your participation signifies your belief in RCDS’s commitment to providing a formative education that sets students up for a lifetime of success. We are grateful for every contribution.
