Five years ago, we launched the Boldly Forward Capital Campaign to raise critically important funds to construct new community spaces, improve our facilities, and strengthen our endowment. 

Early community-wide support of our Boldly Forward Campaign allowed the school to open the Susan Haigh Carver ‘51 Dining Hall & Commons, and that same level of strong support has been a significant driving force behind the construction and completion of our new Athletics & Wellness Center. To date, more than 100 Country School parents, alumni, parents of alumni and grandparents have contributed more than $20 million to support these projects and grow our endowment. We are in our fifth and final year of the Campaign -- and we are almost 70% of the way toward our $25 million goal. But we still need your help! 
 
Contributions to the Capital Campaign (which is separate from the school’s Annual Fund), come in the form of multi-year pledges as well as one-time gifts, and we are grateful for the community’s support at all levels. There are still opportunities to name spaces within the Athletics & Wellness Center and support the vital programs that will continue to grow and thrive within the new building. Additionally, there are many opportunities to help beautify our campus by supporting the Campus Landscape Project. Campaign gifts are also needed to help support and strengthen the school’s endowment.
