Ways to Give

Ruth Washburn relies on the support of our community to thrive. There are many ways to give to support the school. No gift is too small—we appreciate everything you generously share with us!

Donate Now

Unrestricted, tax-deductible donations go to our school’s annual fund. The annual fund is used to enhance the school’s ability to offer scholarships, defray the school’s operating costs—such as teachers’ salaries, supplies, and facility maintenance—and extend our unique educational experiences to more children in the community.

Ways to Give

Monthly Recurring Donation
