Honor Roll of Donors 2020-2021

During an unprecedented time in the school's history, donors generously supported the philanthropic efforts that advanced the school's mission. They bolstered the possibility of a return to in-person learning during a global pandemic. We recognize that students in many schools nationwide never stepped foot on campus during the 2020-2021 school year. CSS was able to deliver the majority of the year in person. Charitable giving assisted in covering the cost of COVID-19 mitigation expenses, as well as preserving signature programs. Of course, we acknowledge the loss experienced from pivots and disruption and look forward to school's years marked more normally by traditions and predictability. Still, we are extremely grateful for those donors who worked together to support the extraordinary efforts of the 2020-2021 school year.

Results of 2020-2021 Fundraising: $553,774
  • Annual Fund gifts: $349,812
  • Restricted gifts: $56,962
  • Gala & Auction (net proceeds): $137,000
  • Parents Association & Community Events: ~$10,000

This year, we embraced our campus acreage and buildings in new ways as we socially distanced and cohorted students. The resources of 28 acres and eight academic buildings for 300 students are an incredible result of generations of visionary donors.

As always, we give a reflective nod to those who stand tall as pillars of philanthropy throughout the school’s history. We thank those who are members of the Lifetime Giving Society as they have contributed a collective sum of $50,000 or more to the school over the years. These are the people and organizations who imagined our school, built facilities, invested in capital projects, endowed programs, and made transformational gifts over the last 60 years.

Honor Roll of Donors

Our Honor Roll of Donors represents philanthropic gifts made by June 30, 2021, to the school’s Annual Fund, Restricted gift programs, and the Gala’s “Raise Your Paddle” giving opportunity and sponsors.
