A Day of Giving to Support Independent Education

Tuesday, November 28, 2023: Giving Tuesday

The clock is ticking, and the stage is set for one of the most exciting and competitive events of the year. Welcome to the kickoff of our 2023-2024 Annual Campaign for the Raven Experience Fund!

This challenge isn't just about numbers; it's about the shared commitment we all have to the education and growth of our students. We believe that our school is a guiding light, a place where young minds are nurtured, dreams are fostered, and futures are shaped. To ensure that this torch keeps burning brightly, we need everyone on board, and this Giving Tuesday (Tuesday, November 28th) is our opportunity to prove just how united and dedicated we are.

Why Give Beyond Tuition?

Let's take a moment to reflect on the impact our school has on our students. It's not just about teaching subjects; it's about instilling values, building character, and shaping the leaders of tomorrow. We believe in equipping our students with the tools they need to navigate the complexities of the modern world, fostering critical thinking, curiosity, creativity, and a commitment to lifelong learning.

To achieve this, we need your help. As you know, independent schools like ours face operational costs that extend beyond tuition. These include faculty salaries, classroom resources, technology, maintenance, and much more. Without your support, these critical needs may go unmet. The operational costs are the lifeblood of our institution, allowing us to maintain our standards of excellence and continue our tradition of providing an exceptional education.

This Giving Tuesday, we are aiming for nothing less than 100% family, employee, and board participation. By reaching this ambitious goal, we send a powerful message that we are not only invested in the success of our children but also in the future of our school. Every contribution, regardless of its size, is a statement of solidarity and belief in the mission of our institution.

So, here's the challenge for Giving Tuesday this year: Let's show the world that The Summit Prep community is unmatched in its commitment to education. We are not just striving to reach our goal – we're aiming to exceed it and make a lasting impact on our school.

Thank You!

We encourage you to think about what The Summit Prep means to you, to your family, and to our community. By giving generously on Giving Tuesday, you are investing in a brighter future for our children, our school, and our collective legacy.

Join us in this race to 100% participation and let's make Giving Tuesday 2023 the day that defines our commitment to education and the operational excellence of our school.

Stay tuned for updates, events, and progress reports as we embark on this thrilling journey together. We look forward to celebrating our collective success on Giving Tuesday, November 28th.

Thank you for being a vital part of The Summit Prep community and for your dedication to our children's education.
