Our History

The Fund was founded in March 2013 by community members interested in preserving the quality education Rye City School District is known for and making a positive impact on the future of Rye schools.  We are grateful to our founding members who recognized the need to support important educational innovation that did not fit into the District’s annual budget. 

Thank you to our Founding Donors
