Annual Fund

Did you know that tuition only covers a portion of what it costs to provide a River Valley Waldorf School education? The difference between tuition and the full cost is made up by generous annual fund donations from our community. 

Your gift supports teacher development, financial aid, and the many special programs we provide as a school. Every gift makes a difference and helps us reach our annual fund goals for the year. 

Ways to Give


Individuals and Businesses based in Pennsylvania have the opportunity to convert their state tax obligation into direct support for River Valley’s financial aid fund! 

If you are a decision maker at a PA-based business, or an individual who has state tax obligations of $3,000/year, you have the opportunity to apply to the EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit) program and direct 90% or more of your state tax obligation to River Valley. 

River Valley is an approved Educational Institution, making it easy to direct your EITC dollars directly to us. 

For more information on how to apply to take advantage of these tax credit programs and support River Valley, you can visit PA’s website, CLICK HERE, or reach out to Advancement Director Allegra Ketchum at aketchum@rivervalleyschool.or or by phone at 610-982-5606.
