What to Support

Why we need your support

Most nonprofits depend on charitable contributions: the Ridhwan School relies on them to support and enhance the presence of the Diamond Approach teaching in the world. Student dues and fees cover the majority but not all, of the operational expenses of the school, including operational and maintenance expenses of the California and Colorado centers; general administrative costs such as central accounting and financial reporting, budgeting, planning, legal services and other office expenses; and some administration for groups. However, our commitment to maintaining the affordability of the teaching for as many people as possible means we depend on donor generosity to support these operations as well as new programs and initiatives.

What to Support

Promote the School's Health & Sustainability through The General Fund (Unrestricted): This fund allows the Ridhwan Foundation to deploy your funds strategically to further the School's overall mission and vision and fund the ongoing costs of running a worldwide School.

Support Key New Initiatives

Fund new initiatives like DiamondNet, book editing/publishing and other long-term strategic projects.


Fund the Future

Support the long-term legacy of the teaching through contributions to our endowment fund.



Teacher-to-Teacher Fund

The Teacher-to-Teacher Fund (TTF) is a fund set up by teachers for teachers to help provide financial support to teachers in need, in the form of scholarships, micro loans, emergency type assistance, and in some cases, longer term loans and support.
