From the Advancement Director
Giving is at the heart of Christ Episcopal School’s success. We have flourished because our founders created a mission for our School; we are here because donors gave so generously to support that vision; we thrive as a school because teachers offer the best of their talents and skills to care for students; Christ Episcopal School stands here today because students and families give their trust and energy toward our program; and we are here because of the long line of generous benefactors who understand the fine work of this place and who seek to ensure that this work continues to extend outward, reaching others. We are each invited to respond to the generosity of others with more generosity. May this School continue to be blessed by those who have given their time, their skills and hard work, and the financial resources that have been entrusted to them in order to make a profound difference in the lives of young learners. What this School gives this community through your generosity is priceless to those who receive it.
– Jerry Henson
Spirit of Giving
The spirit of giving is expressed every day throughout CES. The generosity of our CES family makes a Christ Episcopal School education possible, whether they’re volunteering in the classroom or library, serving on a CESPA Committee, supporting the Annual Fund or Capital Fundraising or serving on the Board of Trustees. Thanks to the voluntary support of our school community, Christ Episcopal School has been able to shape and expand its excellent academic program, recruit and retain quality teachers, keep ahead of the curve on technology in education and develop a unique campus learning environment.
The ways in which you can financially support C.E.S. are varied and rewarding. Various giving options fit individual philanthropic and financial planning needs. Since Christ Episcopal School was established in 1984, the tradition of giving has been an important ingredient which has allowed the school to grow and flourish. The advancement of the school continues to depend upon that tradition of giving as families, faculty, staff, alumni and friends support the school in various ways. Your support benefits the students of today and tomorrow, affirming the day to day as well as future success of the school’s mission.
Gifts allow the school to start new programs and help strengthen existing ones. Gifts make financial aid available to qualified boys and girls and promote and reward the work and dedication of our dedicated faculty and staff. Your gifts provide professional development, technology improvements, curricular improvements, athletic activities, fine arts opportunities, and various student enrichments. Participation by the entire Christ Episcopal School community is the key to our continued success. We invite you to get involved!
