The Now + Forever Campaign
In the winter of 2018, we invited current parents, alumni, former parents, faculty, and board members to participate in focus groups to help us determine how best to improve and move The Stanley Clark School forward. We asked each group to consider what makes our school unique and what we could focus on to make it outstanding both for our current students and for those that will come through our doors in the future.
Out of these robust and remarkably consistent conversations, The Now + Forever Campaign was born. This bold campaign encompasses two broad categories: endowment funding and capital improvements. The goal for these exciting and mission-critical purposes is $5,000,000.
Endowment Funding Opportunities
Like all nonprofit educational institutions, The Stanley Clark School uses endowment proceeds to fund and sustain elements critical to our mission: students, teachers, programming, and facilities. Endowment donations are invested in perpetuity with the investment proceeds used to support the school Now + Forever. Gifts to the endowment provide critical and perpetual support, independent of tuition, for the benefit of every student. The Now + Forever campaign is focused on three specific areas of endowment: faculty support, student financial support, and character and leadership.
Capital Improvement Opportunities
At Stanley Clark, we enjoy a beautiful campus with exceptional facilities to support academics, athletics, and the visual arts. However, we lack space commensurate with the quality of our curriculum to support drama and music performances, gather for assemblies, host guest speakers, and other opportunities. This community recognized the need for a space that could accommodate all of those uses - and more! With that, we designed a new Performing Arts Center that will provide facilities that allow our students the opportunity to showcase their talents.
Thank you to each donor who has partnered with us in this vision and who has already so generously contributed to these important initiatives. We are making great progress in closing out our initiatives. If you have not yet had the opportunity to make a gift to one of these four areas, we invite you to consider how you might join us in helping the school reach the $5,000,000 goal before us. Whether you choose to support the endowment raise or the construction of the Performing Arts Center, your gift will impact the students of The Stanley Clark School both Now + Forever.
