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.

There are many ways to support the Keith students and community and we’ve outlined options that would best suit your interests and giving capabilities.

Between now and April 30, 2021, all donations up to $50,000 will be doubled by an alumni donor!

This generous offer is made possible by Keith School alumni Shawn Ryan – Class of ’84 – and his wife Cathy. Shawn and Cathy know the impact a Keith education can have and are looking to give back to the school community that was a foundation of Shawn’s future.
