A Culture of Giving

King School is a generous community with a strong tradition of philanthropy. Parents, alumni, parents of alumni and friends enrich the life of the school in a multitude of ways by volunteering to serve on committees and events, and investing in King’s current and future programs through annual giving.

The primary way that all parents can partner with King is though the King Fund. Annual gifts to the King Fund support a variety of student-centered initiatives, Faculty opportunities, and curricular enhancements, and allow us to maintain the aggressive pace that we set for ourselves as an educational institution that prides itself on the excellence of its program and the accomplishments of its students. It is our expectation that every King parent will make annual gifts the King Fund. Last year, 97% of all parents and 100% of new parents made a vote of confidence in King through the King Fund.
