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.

Giving Opportunities

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.

Today, the Keith family needs the support of our parents, relatives, alumni, and benefactors to preserve that wonderful experience for our youngest students.

This year, our Forever Keith Fund is focused on one critical project—a new roof for the Rhea Building. In an assessment of our most pressing needs for our school, the Rhea Building roof was a high priority, second only to new gutters for the Intermediate Building which a current Keith family generously agreed to cover and is now fully funded. The cost of the new roof has been estimated at $50,000. We are asking for your support in meeting this year’s “lofty” goal.
