Like most Independent Schools, tuition alone does not cover the full cost associated with a Kingsley education. At Kingsley, tuition makes up 85% of our operating budget leaving a gap that is filled, in part, thanks to the generosity of the Kingsley community. Annual giving truly is the cornerstone of Kingsley’s fundraising efforts. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund impact every aspect of the Kingsley experience. They strengthen our academic program, provide faculty with professional development opportunities, and ensure our faculty has the resources necessary in the classroom to provide the most robust experience possible. Put quite simply, Annual Fund gifts enable Kingsley to advance and deliver on our promise to develop each student to his/her fullest potential.
Each year hundreds of members of the Kingsley community, including parents, faculty, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends of the school, are invited to participate in the Annual Fund. This annual fundraising effort is launched in the fall and concludes with the school’s fiscal year on June 30th.
Broad-based participation in the Annual Fund is highly valued and emphasized by the Kingsley community. Each year we aspire to achieve 100% participation of parents, faculty, and staff in our effort. Strong participation is a testament to the strength of our community and our mission.
