Giving

The Calvert Fund

The Calvert Fund is our School’s top fundraising priority. Each year, we ask parents, alumni, grandparents, employees, and friends to participate in the annual giving campaign by making a charitable gift to the School. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of educating our students, so we rely on gifts to the Calvert Fund to help us close the gap.
Calvert fosters student initiative and intellectual curiosity, offers diverse leadership and service opportunities, and provides unique experiences inside the classroom and beyond. This is possible because of our passionate and inclusive community, because of our deeply engaged faculty, and because of our community’s generous financial support of Calvert.
