The Annual Fund represents the largest alternative revenue source for Cranbrook Schools. The Annual Fund goal for the 2020-21 fiscal year is $2.1 million or approximately 4 percent of the Cranbrook Schools budget. The Annual Fund provides more than 1,600 students from 17 states and 23 countries with a comprehensive and challenging college preparatory education—a Cranbrook education.

As George and Ellen Booth famously said, “The only way to have is to give, and the only way to keep is to share.” Today, we ask every Cranbrook family to participate with a gift, of any amount, to the Schools Annual Fund to ensure the Booth legacy lives on. This participation is critical to our financial stability and helps maintain the highest value of a Cranbrook education today and a Cranbrook Schools diploma tomorrow. For more information, please review our guide to Philanthropy and Engagement at Cranbrook Schools.
