Kirby depends on the generosity of family, friends, faculty, and alumni to support our fundraising priority, the Annual Fund. Our 2018-2019 Annual Fund goal is $350,000.
Tuition alone covers 91% of what it takes to educate a Kirby student for a year. Funds raised from the Annual Fund campaign help to make up the difference between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a Kirby education.
Contributions to the Annual Fund make it possible for Kirby to continue to attract and retain high-caliber faculty, offer individualized instruction and maintain our small class sizes. Students directly benefit from your generosity.

Why I donate to education as a whole and Kirby in particular? I believe quality education is the only way to help our country and the world face the challenges ahead. Kirby especially engenders thinking minds and embraces differences.

I donate to Kirby School because I support the academic and social-emotional values of this great school. For the past five years, I’ve not only seen my child develop into an engaged young adult, but I have also witnessed other students flourish and come into their own. When I donate to Kirby School’s general fund, I am helping Kirby School give all its students the same opportunity to thrive academically and socially in a supportive environment.

I am so thankful for Kirby’s investment in my daughter. It seems only fitting to invest in Kirby in return. A recurring monthly donation helps me budget appropriately and has a cumulative benefit for Kirby.
