Riverbend Academy Matthew Project (RAMP): We recently unveiled this campaign to raise the remaining funds needed for the addition of 2 science labs, 5 classrooms and additional restrooms.  We have been looking forward to this for several years, and are so thankful for the funds that have already been given to this project.  Giving over the years through Legacy Gala, and with the support of Riverbend Community Church, allowed us to begin this campaign with $500,000 towards the approximately $1.2 million needed for the proposed project. In addition, Dr. Alex White and Progressive Medical Research (PMR) has pledged an additional $100,000 as a challenge gift to kickoff RAMP.  We have raised $735,455 of the $1.2 million needed for RAMP.  Click here for the RAMP Giving Link.
Growing a Legacy, Annual Gala to benefit Riverbend Academy: The Legacy Gala is the largest fundraiser for the Academy and is held in the spring each year.  Live and silent auction items include vacations, experiences, jewelry, local art, dinner certificates, varieties of baskets, priceless class art projects, and more! This year the Gala is Sat., April 9 at Oceanside Country Club. Funds from previous Galas have contributed to the purchase of lockers, security system, funding for scholarships, science and art equipment, and toward the building project which we are currently undertaking. There are multiple ways to support the Gala – sponsorships, donation of items for the auctions, volunteering to collect items for the auctions and working with class baskets and art projects.  It truly takes a village for this event, but it has proven to be a fun way to gather with family and friends for a good cause. This year the proceeds from the Gala will be directed to the current building project. We are currently seeking sponsors, items for the auctions, and volunteers.  We will have mobile bidding this year so we are hoping to have sponsors in place and a wide variety of items to promote when the Gala website goes live in January. Click here for the Legacy Gala Giving.
