Philanthropy at Christ Church Episcopal School


Thank you for your interest in supporting Christ Church Episcopal School. Like all independent schools, CCES depends upon the generosity of our community to sustain and advance the school’s mission. Fortunately, our community is a generous one, with two generations of families that have blessed us with their wealth, work, and wisdom over the years. We welcome you to join into that tradition that has made and will continue to make such a positive impact on the lives of all of our students.
 
CCES is an extraordinary place, and our Advancement Office is committed to providing and creating opportunities for you to become a part of this community. If you have any questions or need guidance about the type of gift you wish to make to CCES, no matter what size, please do not hesitate to contact us. We appreciate each and every one of our current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends whose vision and generosity fuel the mission of CCES and move us forward.

I give first and foremost because I know my gift to CCES has the power to improve the lives of nearly 1,100 students. I feel a gift of any amount, can help in a large way and having the power to improve the lives of students, or anyone for that matter, is a privilege.  -CCES Parent
