Donate to our Operation Raider 100%
The River Ridge Academy Foundation is looking forward to continuing its support of the students and faculty of River Ridge Academy during the 2018-19 school year.  Working with the Raider Nation during school year 2017-18, the Foundation was able to enhance the school’s entry way and library with educational art designed to inspire the students; recognize teachers with special gifts during the Christmas holidays and eighth grade promotion; and provide needed classroom supplies because no teacher should have to use their personal funds.  This is why the Foundation exists!

The River Ridge Academy Foundation is kicking off the 2018-19 school year with Operation Raider 100%, a fundraiser to generate funds for our school, our students, our teachers and our classrooms.  The name, Operation Raider 100%, is twofold…100% of the funds raised stay in the school and 100% participation from our school community is our goal.  All donations, no matter the amount, get us closer to our goals of supporting our students, teachers, and school.  Our school has the BEST students and teachers and parents!  Let’s come together and work as a team and reach our goals!

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

The River Ridge Academy Foundation wants to support every teacher and every child, in every grade.  Funds raised will:

  • provide classroom resources;
  • sponsor student and teacher activities;
  • support teachers as they implement new programs into their curriculums that otherwise would not be possible;
  • bring books to the classrooms and library;
  • provide supplies to the classrooms and teachers;
  • supplement student learning through teacher grants that will enrich student activities during the school day;
  • bring experts to the school to share their talents with our students.

THE FOUNDATION VISION: MAKING EVERY CHILD'S POTENTIAL A REALITY.

We are asking students to collect donations from family and friends.  100% of all donations stay in our school to make all of the above possible.  We know people work hard for their money and we want 100% of donated monies to benefit our school, our students, and our teachers.  In an effort to simplify the demands on our teachers and families, we have created this straight-forward fundraising campaign.  This fundraiser is simple, has no gimmicks and no fuss.  There is nothing to sell and, therefore, nothing to deliver or pick up at a later date.  As students ask their family members for donations, we encourage them to talk about what the money is used for and to stress the fact that 100% of the donation will STAY AT THE SCHOOL!!  The River Ridge Academy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that has chosen to partner with the Community Foundation of the Low Country for administrative support. The RRA Foundation has established the “River Ridge Academy Fund” in partnership with the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible as allowable by law.
