Roland Park Foundation

The Roland Park K-8 community needs you now more than ever. Please make a donation online or in person to support our truly world class IB school. Sponsorship levels range from $25 to 10,000+. Donations up to $2,500 can be made in person or online.

Please contact Julie Garfield for donations greater than $2,500 or with any questions you may have. Also, we are featuring our Family Business / Corporate Sponsor level again this year where your business banner can be displayed on our school fence for $1,000 for the entire year!

The Roland Park Foundation, a non-profit 501c3, was created in 2018 by parent volunteers to raise funds for our amazing students, school, and staff. School administrators, in conjunction with parent volunteers, identify projects and programs to enhance everyone’s learning experience at Roland Park. The Roland Park Foundation kicks off the Annual Dragon Donors Giving Campaign each Fall and celebrates Dragon Fire Ball each Spring.

Because of the generosity of parents and family Dragon Donors, the Roland Park Foundation raised over $300,000 from 2019-2022 and was able to fund:

  • Communication, Empowerment and Team Building retreat for PYP and MYP Educators and Administrators
  • State-of-the-art flat screens for interactive classroom learning
  • Administration-directed teacher incentives
  • Annual IB teacher training and IB Conferences
  • Domestic and international service learning trip scholarships for MYP students
  • Ukuleles and drums for the music program
  • Outdoor PYP and MYP basketball hoops
  • Sunshine State Young Reader Award books for PYP and MYP
  • MYP social events
  • Introduction of PYP and MYP Robotics Labs with the Swamy Family 
  • Turf and polywood furniture for outdoor classrooms 
  • New laptops (to support eLearning)
  • Educational software
  • New modular media center furniture, including maker space tables
  • Completion of the outdoor covered court with Wharton-Smith and the Iarossi Family 
  • Sunshade for the upper elementary playground
  • Global Read Aloud program
  • Math and science teacher resource rooms benefitting all RP students
