500 donors in 24 hours
Black Friday. Cyber Monday...#GiveKingTuesday.
Join the worldwide celebration of philanthropy, #GivingTuesday, by making a gift or pledge to King School between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1. This year, our goal is 500 donors by midnight in honor of our 5th anniversary of #GiveKingTuesday. Follow King on social media for updates throughout the day, and join us online to share your pride and support King.
King School sets the standard for both the experience and outcomes of education. This year, King went to unprecedented lengths to ensure a safe return to campus and a rigorous academic experience for our students. We incurred approximately $2M in additional costs, bolstering our staff with new associate teachers, investing in additional space to facilitate safe in-person learning, and implementing new technology to ensure a challenging and rewarding school year.
We ask every member of our community to make meaningful yearly gifts to the King Fund, and many choose to do so on #GiveKingTuesday. 100% of contributions to the King Fund are deployed in the current fiscal year, covering 7% of King School’s annual budget and strengthening the student experience for every student, every day.
Thank you to all the parents, alumni, staffulty, parents of alumni, grandparents, and special friends for your contributions to the King Fund—your partnership provides students with every opportunity to thrive.
