Annual Giving

Your gift makes a difference

Annual gifts from alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends further the Academy’s mission and provide support for all areas.

Cadets are the primary beneficiary as gifts make possible enhancements not provided by tuition revenue.

The Riverside annual fund year runs from June 1 - May 31 and gifts are given within that time period.

Gifts may be designated to specific areas, although, unrestricted gifts allow the Academy’s leadership to apply funds to the most urgent opportunities for support. All gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law.
