Rivier University Fund

Transformation begins with you.

When you give to the Rivier University Fund, you support the transformative education of the whole student. You help us provide opportunities that foster academic excellence, student engagement, and professional preparation. The Rivier experience opens our students’ hearts and minds to serve the world, and it all begins with you.

You create opportunity

Our students are an inspiration, personally and professionally. They come to Rivier as traditional students beginning their journey and as adults embarking on the next chapter in their lives. They are curious and diverse and full of potential. With your support, a Rivier education is made affordable and accessible for our deserving students each year.

You strengthen our community

Your gifts strengthen the University as an intellectual and cultural resource for the city of Nashua, the state of New Hampshire, and beyond. The Rivier experience prepares students for success in the 21st-century workforce. Your support ensures that academic programs and resources remain both relevant and innovative in their approach and delivery.

You make change happen

Your donations allow us to provide unique experiences for student engagement, leadership, and service that have a profound and lasting impact on students, in our local community and throughout the world.

Meet Sam, a senior Homeland Security and Emergency Management major who can be found on the lacrosse field, leading new students through orientation or representing student-athletes as a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. He has found his home away from home at Rivier and wants to give back to ensure future generations of Raiders have the same impactful experience at Rivier. “I try to do everything I can on campus to give back so that current and future students feel the same inclusion I have felt since day one as a student here.” Support students like Sam with your donation to the Rivier University Fund.

Your Gift. Your Option. Your Fund.

Greatest Need

Your gift will be utilized where it will have the biggest impact on our students and their futures.

Giving to Rivier is a priority. I want students to have the same opportunities I did. The youth are our future, and I want to set them up for success. If I can play a small part in making that happen, my goal will be fulfilled.

Emma, a junior Nursing major, transferred to Rivier after finding the University had the accommodations and welcoming environment she could thrive in. “The transition was so easy, and I have had nothing but good experiences with the staff and students. At my previous school, I was just a number. At Rivier, I feel the support of everyone around me, and there are so many resources for me to access to ensure my success.” As a scholarship recipient, Emma has found the financial support to help make her dreams a reality. She is thankful for the generosity of others who have supported her education. When you support scholarships, you ensure every student, regardless of their financial means, can pursue their dreams at Rivier.
