Support Curtis

Enhancing Your Child's Education

We are fortunate to have a community of families that is deeply committed to supporting our educational mission and is actively involved in the life of the school. We are tremendously proud of the strength of this longstanding partnership. We invite families to become engaged in the Curtis community and to embrace opportunities to enhance each child’s educational journey.

Curtis Annual Fund

Every family is asked to make a gift to the Curtis Annual Fund at the beginning of each school year. We encourage you to make a meaningful gift that is commensurate with your family’s financial ability. Gifts of any amount are welcome and appreciated, and every gift matters.

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating a student at Curtis. This is true for almost every independent school. Tuition plus a strong Annual Fund enable the school to provide the rich curriculum, programs and learning environment that are the hallmark of a Curtis education. Learn more about how your gift to the Annual Fund supports Curtis.

Gifts to the Annual Fund are 100% tax-deductible.

Gift Planning

Remembering Curtis in your estate plan is a meaningful way to ensure the school’s ability to continue to fulfill its educational mission into the future.

A wide variety of planned giving options are available that will allow you to generously support Curtis while maintaining your current lifestyle and improving your overall financial and tax situation.

Planned gifts honor the lasting impact that Curtis has in the lives of our alumni, families, and friends.

Curtis Parents Association

All parents and guardians are valued members of the Curtis Parents Association. The close working relationship of the Parents Association with the administration and faculty is a unique strength of our school that enhances the experience of all our students, families, faculty and staff.
 
Parents Association volunteers:
  • Support the school’s fundraising efforts, including the Annual Fund and Curtis Celebrates!
  • Organize community-building activities, such as the Curtis Fair.
  • Manage a number of services for families, including hot lunch and new and used uniform stores.
  • Coordinate enrichment and service opportunities for students and Curtis families.
The effectiveness of the Parents Association is directly proportionate to the involvement of every parent, working in partnership with the administration and faculty. All parents are encouraged to engage in the life of our school through the Parents Association.

Capital Giving

Periodically, with guidance from the Board of Trustees, the school will embark on an initiative that requires significant funding. In those instances, we will mount a capital campaign to raise the funds that are needed in excess of the school’s Annual Fund goal. Curtis School’s major gifts effort provides funds for vital campus development as well as endowment, enhancing—and often transforming—our programs and facilities and ultimately our students’ elementary school experience.
