About

We are excited to announce our Day of Giving campaign, Spring for South Kent! This campaign aims to raise funds to support the School's ongoing Mission to provide an exceptional education to our students.

Spring for South Kent is our day of giving where our community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends come together to make a difference. Our goal is to exceed 200 donors in just 24 hours, and with your help, we know we can achieve it!

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  1. Make a gift: Any gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Your support helps provide scholarships, fund academic programs, and improve campus facilities. You can make a donation online at our campaign website on April 4th or pre-schedule your gift in advance.
  2. Share the campaign, become an Advocate: Spread the word about Spring for South Kent on social media! Share our campaign posts, create your own content, and use the hashtag #SpringforSouthKent. By raising awareness, you help us reach more potential donors and supporters.
  3. Participate in challenges: Throughout the day, we'll be hosting challenges for our community to participate in. These challenges will be fun and interactive, and will help us unlock additional funds from our generous donors. Stay tuned for more information on the challenges!

Join us as we celebrate Spring for South Kent School!
