Considering Calvert Day


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.
Our fantastic educators, who have a deep understanding of lower and middle school children, are at the core of what makes Calvert special. The Calvert Fund allows us to recruit and keep the very best educators. Two-thirds of what we raise each year for annual giving supports salary and benefits and provides our teachers with all the resources they need.

Because of generous support from our community, we are READY to provide an exceptional education to our boys and girls. This year, we are SET to raise $1,050,000 to give our students everything that makes them happy, enthusiastic learners. Please GO support Calvert School by making a gift today!

This year’s Calvert Fund goal is $1,050,000.
