Honor Roll of Donors 2017-2018

The 2017-2018 Annual Fund was fueled by momentum and pride. Knowing that philanthropy bridges the gap of the true cost of a CSS education, our donors gave generously to the tune of $405,071 in Annual Fund contributions. Additionally, $78,591 of gifts were contributed to restricted funds such as scholarships, endowment, specific programs, professional development, security, technology and capital improvements. A legacy gift of $104,325 was contributed through planned giving.

The 6-week Annual Fund in the fall focused on parent giving and the Claremont Challenge. Ninety percent of Annual Fund donations were made through leadership gifts to the Claremont Society for $1,500 or more. Leadership donors were called to the Principal’s Office at the Ivywild School to be appreciated. They celebrated the achievement or reaching the Claremont Challenge which triggered an additional $25,000. 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 68%, while 100% of the Board of Trustees and 100% of faculty/staff gave to the Annual Fund.

Proceeds from the Gala & Auction supported student-centered learning in the most fun of ways, an 80s prom-themed benefit netting a record-breaking $100,353! Community-building events such as Carnival and Fun Run are championed by the Parents Association and supported the purchase of twelve new outdoor education tents, costumes and scores for the spring musical, and Google Expedition virtual reality tools for classrooms.
