Giving
"Being surrounded by young people discovering who they are and what they want to become is most rewarding. The paths are almost never linear, but that’s what makes each day exciting."

"Collegiate's size and its confidence in coeducation provide a dynamic experience for students and parents. It is an energized and engaging educational environment." Parent
Annual Fund gifts are extremely important because they support the school’s growing program needs in all areas. Tuition accounts for 82% of the cost to educate each student and the Annual Fund is vital to making up the difference- the difference being greater opportunities and stronger offerings for our students and faculty.

Why SHould I Give to the Annual Fund?

Parents
Your Board of Trustees and administration work closely together to be responsible stewards of your tuition dollars. They are committed to managing carefully school operations, including tuition and expenses, helping offer more predictability in the years to come for our families. Tax-deductible gifts to the Annual Fund not only help bridge the gap between tuition and school operations, but also help keep tuition increases manageable.

Alumni
As direct beneficiaries of the Annual Fund when you were a student, this is a wonderful opportunity to do the same for our current students.

Friends
As grandparents or parents of alumni, your support continues to provide the very best for the students, and teacher at Collegiate.
