Day of Strength

This campaign ended on June 03, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Culver Academies by clicking here!

THANK YOU to everyone who made the Culver Day of Strength a success!  Your generosity provided valuable dollars to meet the needs of our students and campers – many of which have emerged as a result of COVID-19.  Your words of encouragement and willingness to share them uplift us all.  You are truly our strength! 

Join us and make a gift in support of Culver’s Day of Strength!  Gifts to the Culver Fund, will support our students and those mission-critical needs of our Academies and Summer Schools & Camps. 

Culver remains unchanged: a beacon of educational achievement and leadership formation, a community united in its shared commitment to service, honor, and steadfast tradition. Your support of the Culver Fund now will help to ensure the strength of our community and our institution during these difficult times.  

To those who have already made a gift this year, of any size, we thank you. To all of you, we wish you well in this time of uncertainty and we hope to see you soon!  #Since1894

We are fortunate to have had lead donors come forward with more than $1 million in gifts to support our Day of Strength. These gifts and every gift will play an essential role in ensuring that Culver has the necessary resources to continue providing the superior educational and camp experiences for which we have been known since 1894. 

This year’s Day of Strength will provide a welcome opportunity for all of us — alumni, parents, students, campers, staff, and friends — to connect and reminisce.  Honor the Class of 2020 by participating in sharing well wishes, advice, and congratulatory messages from the worldwide Culver family. Share your messages through social media with the hashtag #Culver2020 and #Since1894.
