Dear KES Family,

Thank-you for being a part of our extraordinary School community. As we now enter into the Fall Season, we have begun to settle into our rhythm at KES. Just as rhythm is an important part of the School day for our Students, the Annual Giving Campaign is essential to the rhythm of our School’s long term success and growth.

We are happy to announce that the theme of our 2018-2019 Annual Giving Campaign will once again be Fund Your Passion!
This year, we are highlighting the FOUR Pillars of KES: Academics, Arts, Athletics and Leadership, along with Financial Aid Scholarships and Headmaster’s Priorities. Our goal is to give you the ability to choose a cause that channels your personal passion into meaningful life-changing opportunities for our Students. Because of your generosity, Students at KES will continue to benefit from abundant opportunities to learn, grow, excel and be more!

One grateful KES Alumna who benefitted from a past Annual Giving Campaign, writes:

“As a child, my ambition and love for learning far exceeded my financial means. When I learned that I would have the opportunity to attend KES and receive financial support, I couldn’t have imagined how the next 4 years would profoundly shape my character and alter my life path. The encouragement I received to be the best that I could be and to challenge myself to “be more” has stuck with me through my post-secondary education and into my professional career. I truly hope someday, I will be able to help KES students to reach their goals in the same way.”

You are making a difference in the lives of our Students and your gift to the Annual Fund helps to provide outstanding Academic, Athletic, Artistic and Leadership Programmes, financial aid opportunities and much, much more. All donations, regardless of the amount, are deeply appreciated. Since we are a non-profit School, your donation is tax deductible. The most important component of this campaign is full participation. Having 100% of the School community chipping in signals community support which in turn, helps us in asking for charitable support from philanthropic organizations for other vital fundraising initiatives at our School.

Sincerely,

Joseph Seagram
Headmaster
