Honor Roll of Donors 2016-2017

In 2016-2017, our community exceeded goals and raised $300,809 in Annual Fund contributions. Additionally, $161,500 of gifts were contributed to restricted funds such as scholarships, endowment, specific programs, professional development, security, and technology and capital improvements.

Ninety 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 these leadership donors during the Claremont Society reception last fall at the Johnny Martin’s Car Central in the fall. During this reception, we also applauded the visionary support of our Lifetime Giving Society, those who have contributed more than $50,000 in combined gifts throughout the history of the school.

Gifts are appreciated at every level from donors representing current parents, past parents, faculty/staff, Board of Trustees, grandparents and alumni. Parent participation reached 65%, while 100% of the Board of Trustees and 100% of faculty/staff gave to the Annual Fund.

Proceeds from Gala & Auction supported arts and technology programs and the spring event netted $47,479. Community-building events such as Carnival, Fun Run, and Garage Sale championed by the Parents Association netted approximately $40,000 in revenues.
