Honor Roll of Donors 2015-2016

During 2015-2016, the community raised $265,781 in Annual Fund donations. Additionally, $259,562 in gifts were raised for restricted uses such as scholarships, endowment, specific programs, professional development and technology and capital improvements. One such large restricted gift came thoughtfully from the Estate of Susan Barker Day ‘70. The school and her friends lovingly shared her story and put a spotlight on her planned giving during the 2015 Founders’ Day ceremony.

Eighty-eight percent of Annual Fund donations were made through Claremont Society gifts of $1,500 or more. This leadership giving society is critical to the success of reaching the Annual Fund goal. Appreciation was shown for Claremont Society donors during a reception last fall at the Mining Exchange’s Silver Room.

Gifts were appreciated at every level from donors representing current parents, past parents, faculty/staff, the Board of Trustees, grandparents and alumni. Parent participation reached 67%, while 100% of the Board of Trustees and 100% of faculty/staff gave to the Annual Fund.

Our spring Gala and Auction contributed much enthusiasm and appreciation for student-centered learning as it netted $80,900, a 58% increase from last year’s event. Proceeds from Gala & Auction supported arts and technology programs. Community-building events such as Carnival, Fun Run and Garage Sale championed by the Parents Association led to $13,000 in high-impact items purchased for the school.
