This year, we’re sharing 53 Reasons to Love CRMS. There’s certainly more, and since the school’s founding in 1953, generations of students, families, faculty, and community members have found their own reasons to love CRMS.
Which one is your favorite?
Join us in celebrating all the reasons to love CRMS. We hope you'll make a gift to the 2019-20 CRMS Annual Fund for the one that means the most to you.
Why Give to the CRMS Annual Fund?
The CRMS Annual Fund underwrites essential aspects of the school. Tuition alone covers only 78% of the cost in providing the outstanding CRMS experience to our diverse student body.
This school year, over $2 million in financial aid and scholarships will be awarded to over 40% of our students based on need, thanks largely to the Annual Fund.
This fund also supports professional development for our committed faculty, resulting in greater academic rigor and creative instruction techniques. Gifts to the Annual Fund also elevate CRMS to excellence, underwriting programs such as the outdoor curriculum, service to the community, and impressively unique arts offerings.
Strong participation from parents and alumni is key to the school’s success in attracting support from foundations and major contributors. EVERY gift counts, whether large or small.
The 2019-20 CRMS Annual Fund goal is $725,000 and runs from July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020.
