What is the Ryan Fund?

The Ryan Fund is gifts from Archbishop Ryan’s loyal alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends. These contributions strengthen and support nearly every facet of our high school - from the expansion of our academic programs, to the enhancement of our athletic facilities, or helping with our operational expenses. However, the biggest impact of your support is on our students!

Giving to the Ryan Fund helps empower Ryan Ragdolls and Raiders, providing them with scholarship funds to pursue their dreams and improving programs to enhance their high school experience.  

The Ryan Fund allows you to direct your gift to the area that is most meaningful to you: Tuition Assistance, Academics, Athletics, Theater/Arts, Facilities, or Unrestricted Giving.

Why Give to the Ryan Fund?


Every gift, no matter what size, will make a difference in the lives of our students and positively impact the future of Archbishop Ryan High School. The Ryan community has shown incredible passion and generosity for over 50 years, and it is through your support that we remain one of the leading educational centers in the Philadelphia area.

Educational Improvement Tax Credits (EITC) is a program designed to let eligible businesses or individuals designate their tax dollars to support a scholarship or educational improvement organizations (such as Archbishop Ryan) of their choosing. This is one of the few opportunities you’ll ever have to direct your tax dollars to a specific destination. This full donation is applied to tuition assistance.
