Like so many other top-flight preparatory schools and colleges, R-MA is dependent upon the generosity of its donors to maintain the level of excellence for which the school is known. Tuition and fees cover only 84.5% of the Academy’s annual operating costs; the remaining 15.5% is met with gifts from alumni, parents, friends, and organizations. To make this process a simple one, we have developed various ways in which donors may contribute to the Academy. Among the most important gifts are those to the Annual Fund, which supports the Academy’s annual operations (salaries, utilities, etc.). Donors may also consider a planned or capital gift. Detailed information concerning both of these opportunities is also found in this section of our site. Contributors may use our online gift form, mail a check directly, or make a gift of securities.
Private financial support for R-MA is absolutely essential. Your gift is an investment in our current and future students. We are committed to good stewardship, using these funds responsibly and prudently. Unrestricted gifts allow R-MA to designate the funds for institutional priorities as identified by the Board of Trustees.
Restricted gifts are used as the donor wishes and in accordance with our educational mission. These are often designated for a family scholarship or endowment or to improve the physical plant. As a donor, you send us a vote of confidence with every contribution. You are saying that you care, and want to demonstrate your belief in us.
