CHALLENGE:

For every 500 unique donors, you can unlock $50,000 for

 Kent School by 11:59 PM EST on Friday, April 22.

 

Join us in celebrating your class or your student’s class and Kent’s founding by making a gift—of any amount—to the Kent Annual Fund as part of LoveKent.

It all started with a dream!  Father Sill’s vision to start Kent School became a reality because of the many friends who understood that whatever they could offer would make a difference.

What's at the top?

Alumni: To keep the original rivalry going, the alumni class year with the most donors will be displayed (virtually) around campus Reunion Weekend! 

Parents:  Keep the competition going. The parent class year will be displayed (virtually) around campus on Spring Family Day!

Did you know? 

  • On April 22, 1906, Father Sill released his first statement of finances totaling $2,403.
  • It cost $40 a month to rent the original farmhouse and $200 to begin the school.
  • In the spring of 1907, $3,000 cash and a $3,000 mortgage provided the funds for a permanent site for Kent School.
  • The final $1,000 raised, “enough to put him over the top,” came from two friends.

Help us reach our goal:

  • Create a challenge and encourage your classmates or fellow parents to make a participation gift 
  • Feeling nostalgic? Alumni, share photos from your time at Kent by tagging us on Instagram or emailing them to alumni@kent-school.edu to be featured on social media
  • Follow the leaderboard below to track where your class stands 
  • Watch our heatmap to see where donors are celebrating LoveKent 
  • Encourage your Kent classmates and friends to join you!
