2018 Annual Campaign for the Raven Fund
How The Raven Fund is Used and Why it Matters

Moving Towards Our Goals
Goal: 100% Family Participation
Participation to Date:  19%

Goal: $40,000
Total Pledged/Received to Date:  $19,615.00
All that's left: $20,385.00

The Summit, like other independent schools, must raise funds every year to help meet operating costs, since tuition alone never covers the full cost of an independent school education. Through this support, The Summit is able to:
  • Attract and retain the most talented faculty
  • Provide classroom and learning resources to afford students best-practice learning opportunities
  • Maintain an attractive, welcoming, and safe environment
  • Enhance art, music, physical education, Spanish language, and sports programs
For questions or ways to donate  contact Vince Currao, Summit's Development Officer.
