Gifts can be made by a number of ways that include cash, check, credit card, pledges, employer matching gifts, stocks & securities, personal property, real estate and the donation of needed items or services known as Gifts-in-Kind. There are also a number of areas into which you can direct your gift. Among these are:
Tuition only covers about 84% of the total annual operating cost of the school.
The Annual Fund campaign is conducted every school year from July 1 through June 30. This yearly appeal is made to families, alumni, faculty, staff and friends to bridge the gap and support general operations. Gifts of any amount – large or small - are welcome as any gift to the Annual Fund generates enthusiasm and strengthens our position with other funding sources such as foundations and corporate donors.
We are proud of our families who help support Rivermont and especially of our faculty and staff who each year show their outstanding support with 100% participation in the Annual Fund!
Gifts can be made by mail and sent to: Rivermont Collegiate Development Office,
1821 Sunset Drive, Bettendorf, IA 52722

The Rivermont Collegiate Endowment was established to ensure the future of the school. Endowment funds are set aside in a permanent fund and invested according to policies established by the school’s Board of Trustees. The interest earned from investment of the principal is directed to specific educational needs.
Endowment revenue supports such areas as:
Gifts to the Rivermont Endowment may be either restricted or unrestricted, according to the donor’s preferences. However, unrestricted gifts are the most beneficial to the school as they allow for the interest income to be used for the area of greatest need.
Individuals, groups or organizations may also establish “named” funds within our endowment to honor friends, family members, students, alumni or faculty and staff members. As our endowment grows, so does the financial security it provides to ensure that the school will always remain true to its values and traditions without becoming vulnerable to the dangers of total dependency on tuition income to meet the operating budget.
To make a gift to our endowment or for more information please contact Rod Ossowski, Director of Development at (563) 359-1366 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Planned gifts are those that are pre-arranged and can result in a generous charitable donation that satisfies both the needs and desires of the donor and those of the school as well as significant tax deductibility when it comes to income, capital gain and estate taxes. Successful planned gifts require a good design to achieve the desired result. For these reasons, please contact our Development Office before beginning your planned gift consideration. We can help you by suggesting options to consider and even put you in touch with several financial consultants and planned giving experts, should you need one.
Planned gifts can include bequests, stocks or securities, other assets such as real estate, life insurance policies and tangible personal property such as books, art and stamp and coin collections. Other planned giving instruments can include charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.
