Support RSF – Volunteer or Donate

RSF has helped support programs in all three schools in the Rhinebeck Schools. Students of every age have benefitted. Best of all, programs are not just in “hard science” departments – they have included classes in the arts and music, social studies, English language arts and even physical education!

The professional development we’ve supported for teachers makes each investment even more valuable, and the enthusiasm they add means the support you provide ripples out to improve the schools further.

You can see a summary of the programs we’ve supported in our Projects section.

In addition, RSF has helped foster collaboration and relationships between the Rhinebeck schools and various community entities, including Bard College, Northern Dutchess Hospital, and others.

Others have noticed the results we’ve helped achieve, as well. Representative Kevin Cahill recently supported funding for other Hudson Valley districts to implement similar programs in their school. (While still helping to fund Rhinebeck’s school to continue the great work already underway.)

We hope you’ll join us in getting involved – we are always on the lookout for community members with ideas and energy!

Our biggest needs for volunteers are for our Spring Gala each year, which is our main fundraiser, and for the Discovery Festival, which takes place every other November. Volunteers for these events help with decorating and setup/breakdown, the silent auction, coordinating student volunteers, and other roles.

Throughout the year we need volunteers for Engineering Week and the “Hour of Code” activities, as well as writers, designers, marketers, and PR experts.

If you have time to give and an interest in supporting our schools, please email us for let us know what you're interested in or just to learn more.
