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 who can be found on the soccer field, volunteering for local youth programs, or leading tours as a student ambassador. He credits Rivier with giving him opportunities to do things he has never done before, such as working with youth in our summer camps. “I like that I can make a difference in the life of a child,” he told us. “I teach them to look people in the eye and introduce themselves. I want them to know it’s important to be respectful and to be a good kid.” Sam's story of transformation begins with your support of the Rivier University Fund.

Transform lives, give now

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.

"I never really thought of myself as someone who could inspire others. Now I am confident I can take on leadership roles and be in a position to help others." Rebeca Cruz, Class of 2019, shows us what is possible when students are given the opportunity to reach their full potential. As a first generation student, she would not have been able to attend Rivier without scholarship support. When you support scholarships, you ensure every student, regardless of their financial means, can pursue their dreams at Rivier.
