The Cavalier Fund

Each year, families, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, and alumni parents support the operating cost gap between annual tuition and the cost to run the school. The need is 17%, which equates to $3,161 per student.

Without The Cavalier Fund, fundamental programs of the school would not be fully funded. Your charitable gift will touch every aspect on campus and benefit every student. Donor generosity helps CCES sustain its acclaimed ‘margin of excellence.’ That margin affects crucial areas of the school, including:

Campus Security
Curriculum Development
Professional Development for Faculty
Financial Assistance
Fine Arts
Service Learning
Student Wellness

  • Join Founders Club

    Founders Club is an extraordinary group of current parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alums, faculty/staff and friends of CCES that contributes $1,959* or more each year to The Cavalier Fund. 

    In celebration of our 60th anniversary and in honor of our founding year 1959 we have renamed and updated the leadership giving from the Headmaster Club level of $1,500 to the Founders Club level of $1,959.
    Last Year:
    • 162 households gave $1,500 or more in support of The Cavalier Fund.
    • Founders Club members contributed 79% of total giving ($672,000).
    • Founders Club giving led the effort for important school improvements, the addition of staff positions for the benefit of students, and supported the programs across divisions that set the school apart from other institutions
    In addition to the Annual Giving Kick Off Celebration, this group gets together each year for an evening at a FC member’s home to build relationships and community.
