Becoming a Founding Donor

What does it mean to be a Founding Donor?

Without our Founding Donors there would be no Rye Fund for Education.  Our Founding Donors play a critical role in helping to establish a general fund for the Rye Fund for Education.  Founding Donors are members of our community who possess not only the means but also the inclination to step up to support education as a community value.  The Fund will honor our Founding Donors with a Garnets’ Academic Courtyard paver dedication opportunity as a small token of our appreciation for their support.  


Support categories for Founding Donors are…

Visionary ~ $75,000.00

Catalyst ~ $50,000.00

Partner ~ $25,000.00

Pledges over a period of 3 years are welcome.
