Thank You for Considering a Gift to Support Keith School

An enormous spirit of generosity inspires our school. The commitment of our entire Keith community, past and present, to the financial strength of our school makes extraordinary teaching and learning possible here each day. We salute the many parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff and friends who support the purpose and joy of Keith Country Day School through their thoughtful generosity.

For more than 100 years, Keith Country Day School, its students, families and faculty have benefited from the generosity of the school’s donors. Your gift helps ensure that the gap between tuition fees and operating revenues is minimized so that we may continue to offer college-preparatory programs and experiences. Your gift is important – more than half of Keith’s students receive some financial assistance.

Keith’s Race for Education is held each year to raise funds for our classrooms. All students – preschool through 12th grade – put on their walking shoes and spend part of the day walking or jogging throughout the 15-acre campus to raise funds for their classroom. Dollars raised will support the individual classroom needs. Donations can be made in the name of a student, teacher or grade level.
