Honor Roll of Donors 2018-2019

Thank you to all those who gave generously to the school’s philanthropic initiatives in 2018-2019. The combination of charitable giving above and beyond tuition payments bridges the gap of the true cost of a CSS education. Our donors gave $424,169 in Annual Fund contributions, many of whom grew their gift by leveraging the Colorado Childcare Tax Credit. Additionally, $59,000 in gifts were contributed to restricted funds for strategic priorities outside of the budget.

The 8-week Annual Fund in the fall focused on parent giving and the Claremont Challenge. Eighty-eight percent of Annual Fund donations were made as leadership gifts through the Claremont Society of $1,500 or more. Leadership donors were called to the Principal’s Office at the Ivywild School to be appreciated. They celebrated the achievement of reaching the Claremont Challenge. During this reception, we always applaud the visionary support of our Lifetime Giving Society, those who have contributed more than $50,000 in combined gifts throughout their history with 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 70%, 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. Gala-goers exceeded a fundraising challenge issued by the Board Chair, Pio Hocate. The result was that “Raise Your Paddle” donations soared to new levels, and our Board Chair busted some break-dancing moves for everyone’s amazement! The Gala & Auction netted $131,931.
