2019-20 Clark Fund Giving Catalog

The Clark Fund Giving Catalog

The Clark Fund is a year-round philanthropic program designed to augment tuition and other revenue sources in reaching a balanced budget. Gifts made to The Clark Fund directly impact day-to-day expenses. In order to demonstrate how gifts of all sizes come together to support our mission, we created the Clark Fund Giving Catalog. We hope this giving platform visually tells the story of how important your gift is in ensuring that all needs for students, faculty/staff, and SCS community are met - big or small.

We are thankful for the generosity of our parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, trustees, faculty, staff and friends who support SCS and all of the wonderful things that happen here!

NEW: A Monthly Gift Option: Partner in the Mission

Did you know that instead of a one time gift, you can set up a recurring monthly gift? In doing so, you become a Partner in the Mission, helping to provide long-term financial stability to the school. While you're able to simply set it and forget it, your gift will continue to make a powerful impact. Select " Make a Monthly Gift" to learn more.
