The Ridgewood Fund

All donations to our annual fund, The Ridgewood Fund, are put to immediate use supporting our integrated STEM curricula, co-curricular activities, scholarship assistance, and strategic priorities of the current school year.  Every student benefits from every gift to The Ridgewood Fund.  You may designate your gift to support our Arts, Curricular Innovation, Faculty Development, Scholarships, Sustainable Environmental Projects, Area of Greatest Impact, or a different area that is important to you.

The very best independent schools in the country have the strongest participation in their Annual Funds. As an independent school, tuition alone does not fully cover the costs associated with providing an outstanding education. The Ridgewood Fund helps “bridge the gap” between tuition and the actual cost of a Ridgewood education. Whether your donation is $10, $100 or $10,000, your donation will make a profound impact on every aspect of every students’ daily school experience. Every dollar counts. Every gift matters. Every donor makes a difference! Please participate at whatever level you are able and make this your annual habit.

The Ridgewood Fund Giving Levels:

Integrity Circle: $25+

Creativity Circle: $100+

Diversity Circle: $250+

Inspiration Circle: $500+

Joy of Learning Circle: $1,000+


The Ridgewood Fund begins July 1 and continues through June 30 every year.  Cash, check, credit card, securities and corporate matching gifts are all accepted. Please check with your employer to see if they have a matching-gift program. For more information, please contact Bonita Heeg, Director of Development, at 937.399.8900 or
