This school year, financial aid or scholarship funds will be awarded to 39% of the students based on need, with over $2 million to be awarded due in large part to the Annual Fund. This fund also provides resources for salaries and professional development for the committed faculty and staff, who dedicate an average of ten years of service, individually, to CRMS. Gifts to this important fund also elevate CRMS to excellence, underwriting unique programming such as the outdoor curriculum, service to the community, and impressively varied arts offerings. As always, healthy participation percentages in giving from all constituency groups reflect that CRMS is a valued institution, which attracts larger grants from foundations and gifts from major donors.
The Annual Fund supports all aspects of the operations of the school. Strong participation from parents and alumni is key to the school’s success in attracting support from foundations as well as gifts from major contributors. All gifts count, whether large or small. Unrestricted gifts provide the school with the greatest flexibility, but gifts may be directed to any of these funds:
- Academic Studies
- Faculty Salaries
- Financial Aid
- Head’s Discretionary
- Wilderness and Trips
- Professional Development
- Work Crews and Physical Plant
Please consider consider supporting "Once Upon a Mountain Campus"
and help CRMS achieve the school’s historic $675,000 goal.
