No matter where life takes you, your Cranbrook Kingswood journey continues long after you receive your diploma. About 100 days from now, Cranbrook Kingswood alumni will return to campus to celebrate their unique experiences, and their friendships with one another. During this year’s 100 Days of Alumni Giving, we are asking you to help us celebrate this tradition of excellence.

As we count down to Reunion 2019, we invite you to show your support through 100 Days of Alumni Giving.

    "Cranbrook was like a third parent for me, adding invaluable lessons that were unavailable at home. I'll be eternally grateful to the men and women who taught me to write and to think critically, but who also made me more aware of manners, grace, beauty, and grit.

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. Why should I support the Annual Fund?

    A. In addition to helping ensure that today’s students are able to enjoy the same quality of experience that you had, your participation in the Annual Fund – at any level – is considered as a measure of loyalty, which is used to help evaluate our status as an independent school.

    Your gift to the Schools Annual Fund is also 100% tax deductible.
  • Q. What does my Annual Fund gift support?

    A. Annual Fund dollars are directed towards the school’s most fundamental needs: faculty salaries and enrichment opportunities; academic programming and infrastructure, like classroom improvements and technological upgrades; and financial aid for deserving students. The Annual Fund also provides the budget for core programs, including fine and performing arts, athletics, student publications, residential life, and more. Everything that makes Cranbrook and Kingswood worth remembering, and worth your support.
  • Q. Can I designate my contribution?

    A. The Annual Fund is, by nature, unrestricted; however, if you do not wish to support the general fund, you can earmark your contribution for one of three key priorities: Faculty Compensation; Campus and Classrooms; or Scholarship.
  • Q. When should I make my gift?

    A. The Annual Fund drive runs each year from July 1 to June 30, during which time you may be contacted by the Schools about making a contribution. Annual Fund gifts of any amount made during this time period count toward your annual class participation rate. Our most active giving periods are the end of the calendar year (for tax purposes) and in the period leading up to Reunion Weekend (March through June).
  • Q. How much should I give?

    A. Gifts of any amount are welcome and appreciated. Above all else, it is your participation that counts. For those who are interested, we do have a leadership giving society, the Twenty First Century Club (TFCC), which offers special benefits to donors who contribute $1,000 or more per year to the Schools Annual Fund.
