Rice Rises

Funding the Rice Rises Program provides the predictable, dependable support that we can count on in planning for curriculum needs, student activities, investing in cutting-edge technology, budgeting financial assistance for families, and hiring and retaining the best teachers. This program is essential in allowing Brother Rice to be an exceptional Catholic college preparatory school. Your donation is easy and will go directly to our Crusader Fund each month.

As a self-supporting school whose only sources of funds are tuition and donations, our exceptional school community is enhanced by the involvement and financial support of Exceptional Crusaders like you.
