2018 marks the 150th Anniversary of Rye Country Day School. During this special two-day event, parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, and friends will come together to acknowledge the impact that RCDS has made in their lives with a #RCDS150Challenge gift, benefitting the Annual Fund. The goal of the challenge is to reaffirm our connection as one community with 150 years of history. We hope that you consider making your gift during the challenge to participate in this exciting event.
Thank you! We appreciate and value your support of RCDS. Good news! If you already made a gift to the Annual Fund this fiscal year (July 1 or later) your gift will count towards the 150 Annual Giving Challenge. If you would like to make an additional gift in honor of this special challenge you may do so on this page October 17-18.
