The Rye Fund for Education is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation operating as a non-partisan public charity in Rye, New York. We’re dedicated to ensuring that Rye City Schools continue to provide the very best education for our children.

Our Mission

The Rye Fund for Education is committed to enriching the learning experiences of Rye City School students and ensuring that they have the opportunities and skills necessary to succeed in college and beyond.

We believe every student should have the opportunity to become a scholar, an athlete, an artist and a citizen of the world. We seek to enhance the quality of public education in our community by engaging the support and energies of educators, citizens, parents, students and alumni.

The Fund is supported entirely by donations and is governed by a board of private citizens who are committed to helping all students reach their potential in academics, arts and athletics. We seek to galvanize the entire Rye community to help the Fund achieve its goals, which we believe are critical as our schools face new and dramatic fiscal challenges.

Our Goals

The Fund’s general goal is to provide moneys to support areas critical to enriching our students’ educational experience and to provide funding for the high quality public school education we have come to expect in Rye. More specifically, the Fund seeks to:

  • support Rye’s five public schools in the areas of academics, arts and athletics;
  • fund innovative programs enriching the educational experiences of students both inside the classroom and beyond;
  • inspire and encourage teachers through professional learning opportunities; and
  • offer residents of Rye a community-led vehicle to contribute to public education and strengthen the future of our community.
