A Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 12 co-educational independent day school in Westchester, New York

Why Give

Rye Country Day sincerely appreciates the commitment and generosity of our community. All gifts no matter the amount have a profound impact on our students, faculty and the school as a whole. 
 
As with all independent schools, tuition revenue alone does not cover the full cost of Rye Country Day’s annual operating budget. The Annual Fund helps to bridge this budget gap, and contributes vital funds to academic programs, need-based financial aid, teacher compensation, and other expenses. We ask all members of the School community, including families, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends to make a contribution each year.
 

Rye Country Day is extremely fortunate to have a traditionally dedicated philanthropic community. Over the past 19 years, current families historically have supported annual giving at a participation rate of 95 percent or higher and 98% or higher for the past five years.Our alumni community has also been committed with participation rates of 25 percent or higher. The national average for independent schools is 66% participation for current families and 9.5% for alumni. 

 

The Annual Fund not only provides crucial budget support for the School but is an important measure of the engagement and commitment of the School’s community members.
