Why Give?


A strong philanthropic spirit and commitment to providing excellence in independent education has built a tradition of community support for both the annual fund and capital projects here at Saddle River Day School. With the generous support from our parents, grandparents, alumni and friends we are able to provide the best resources and programs, hire exceptional faculty and make possible the extraordinary opportunities for our current students, while also continuing SRDS’s rich and celebrated legacy.

Over the past few years we have seen tremendous growth in the financial support from the SRDS community. We were thrilled to see a large increase in participation in annual giving last fiscal year, making it our most successful year yet. The School prides itself upon its vibrant and engaged community.

Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of an SRDS education. In fact, the yearly gap of actual cost versus tuition is approximately $2,000, per student. It is our mission to maintain a competitive edge in education by providing the highest caliber of dedicated teachers, state-of-the-art technology, robust arts and science programs at all grade levels and unique opportunities which set SRDS apart. We hope to achieve increased goals in the coming years, placing us in the top tier of annual giving and participation among our peer institutions.

On behalf of the faculty, staff and dedicated leadership volunteers, I thank you for your generous support and involvement, and I look forward to achieving new goals and celebrating extraordinary growth and exciting opportunities for Saddle River Day School!

Sincerely,

Lynn McCormack
