The Calhoun Annual Fund
Let’s #GrowTogether!

The Calhoun Annual Fund is one way that our entire community can support Calhoun — together.
Your contribution ensures that all of our students develop strong roots.


“It can be difficult to re-root, establish new relationships, grow beyond the old form, but it can also be what’s needed to create new and healthier roots in our future.”

— Marcus Bridgewater (@Garden_Marcus)

Being able to visually represent that message was truly special to me, after an incredibly (collectively) challenging year. In addition, I love plants and gardening, so to be able to draw flower buds was an absolute pleasure!
