Ways to Give

With over 20 years of successful pilot programs and innovative projects REF remains passionate about supporting STEM and environmental education, culture and arts programs, health and wellness programs as well as projects aligned with the school district’s goals.

At the same time, this milestone also provides us with the opportunity to look forward and to consider the impact REF can make in the next 20 years. Our goals for the future include:

  • increasing our involvement in areas ranging from kindergarten readiness to college and career planning.
  • expanding our role in social and emotional development as well as introduce life skills programming and financial literacy.
  • partnering with RTSD staff and teachers to bring them exciting professional development opportunities.

To accomplish this, we need you – our Radnor community – to help us continue to grow and succeed in our vision of …

Funding Possibilities, Building Futures, Enriching our Community

There are many ways you can support us!

Double (or Triple!) Your Donation

Double or triple your donation to the Radnor Educational Foundation through your company’s matching gift program! These programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations. Some companies also allow employees to designate grants up to a certain value with no match required by the employee.  We’ve simplified the process by partnering with  Double the Donation.  Just enter your company’s name in the box below to get a link that will take you directly to your company’s matching gift form and program contact information- then complete the form and forward it to the Radnor Educational Foundation with your contribution. We will process the matching gift with your company. If you do not see your company ‘s information,  please let us know so we can participate with your employer!

Gifts in Honor or Memory

Making a donation to the Radnor Educational Foundation is a meaningful way to honor or to remember someone special. Your gift reflects your desire to make a lasting impact on the lives of others, just as your honoree has done for you. We will send a tribute card to your honoree informing them of your gift, or, upon your request, we will inform the family of an individual in whose memory your gift is designated. We thank you for your gift in honor of a special person or occasion, or in the memory of a loved one.
