See how Promise Fund dollars are changing students’ lives every day and in every way! Then, visit rpds.com/give to leave your mark on the heart of RPDS through a gift to this year’s Promise Fund Campaign.
Last year’s RPDS Promise Week campaign, $10K by May, was a huge success, raising an astounding $35,000 in ONE week for the Riverside STEAM Program. Thanks to these vital funds donated by RPDS Alumni, Parents, Grandparents, Faculty, Staff and Friends, we were able to furnish our STEAM Imagination Station with KIBO Robotics, 12 new Sphero Robots (app-enabled robotic balls) and so much more – Thank YOU!
This year, we need you to participate in RPDS Promise Week again, or for the first time, to help us raise$20K in May for Shaded Play.
Why? Because RPDS needs shade structures for the PreK-3 playground and the section of the Rice Sports Zone where the large Laurel Oak tree was removed earlier this year due to ill health. These shade structures will ensure that our students stay out of the sun and have a shady spot to rest while they enjoy playtime, lunch, recess and P.E. – all daily activities at RPDS.
So, here’s the challenge to YOU, help RPDS raise $20,000 over the next 5 days, May 2-May 6, during RPDS Promise Week, while also raising awareness and participation for The Promise Fund via social media.
