Dear Friends,


When I became a Trustee, I knew little about how independent schools were funded. I assumed that large tuition checks were sufficient to fund school expenses and facility investments, but quickly realized how wrong I was. Tuition does not cover a school's operating expenses, let alone its ability to make programmatic investments. 


As we prepare for a new era of leadership in our community, now is the time to make a major new investment in Calhoun. The 19 for 19 Campaign for Calhoun will make this possible, raising $19 million through our three fundraising programs – the Annual Fund, the Gala and Major Gifts – with the majority of funds raised directed to our Endowment.

"I am acutely aware of how lucky I am to have spent so many years of my life in this special community, and am deeply grateful for the life I am living, both professionally and personally. I owe much of it to my Calhoun teachers, mentors and friends. 


Though my Calhoun story may be longer than most, I know that my experiences are not unique. Calhoun is filled with students, teachers, parents, grandparents, alumni and parents of alumni who share my gratitude. If you are one of those people, I urge you to join my family in making a gift to the 19 for 19 Campaign for Calhoun."


- Alison Max Rothschild '85, LS Director

"Calhoun is the foundation for Monte's future.  My family contributes as much as we can because it's an investment - not only in our son's education, but in the person he's becoming. 


The 19 for 19 Campaign for Calhoun will not only benefit my child and his classmates, but it will ensure that other children, who may not have the financial means to attend Calhoun, are able to join and strengthen our diverse community. Giving to the Endowment provides valuable resources to children of all backgrounds so that they have access to an excellent progressive education."
