Everyone can be a HERO! Our goal is 100% participation.


What is the HERO Annual Giving Campaign?

Help Enrich Riverside’s Own (HERO) Annual Giving Campaign is our most important fundraiser of the year and helps guarantee that our children receive a well-rounded high-quality education. Parents for Riverside Drive raises more than $100,000/year to help pay for enrichment programs as well as infrastructure and staffing no longer funded by LAUSD. Our children are able to participate in physical education, computer lab, performing arts, music, and gardening. These programs, along with campus/building improvements and teacher/classroom support are supported by the HERO Campaign


Who gives and how much?

We ask that 100% of Riverside families contribute to the HERO Campaign so please give what you can. We suggest $500 per family, but every dollar counts so please make a thoughtful and meaningful gift for your family. Make a one-time contribution or schedule monthly installments. All gifts are tax-deductible.


Are there incentives for giving?

Our goal is 100% participation. Classrooms that achieve 100% participation will be recognized. Any dollar amount counts toward the 100% participation. All gifts are appreciated. Students will receive a Riverside Drive water bottle, as well as an exclusive HERO class photo and an individual photo with Riverside’s own HERO Rocky! HERO class photos will also appear in the yearbook.
Gifts of $250 or more (per family) will entitle you to a HERO voucher for one
Riverside Drive shirt (child or adult) – new 2014 styles and designs arriving now!
