The Carey Fund is “Our Annual Fund to Live By.” This yearly campaign is the bedrock of Carey’s fundraising program. Since The Carey Fund feeds directly into the operating budget, it is a key ingredient in Carey’s secret sauce and its success is mission-critical. Contributions directly benefit every member of the Carey community and have an immediate impact. These resources are used to attract and retain our award-winning faculty, to provide financial aid, to support the endowment, and to launch exciting academic initiatives. In short it allows Carey’s amazing teachers to inspire ‘curious, confident, and joyful learners’!
So how did we do? The Carey Fund had another record-setting year! The Fund handily surpassed its financial goal by raising over $550,000, an amount that has consistently grown in each of the past 14 years. Those statistics alone are quite a feat! But perhaps a better measure of the Fund’s success is the longstanding tradition of broad participation, with an AMAZING 100% participation from parents, faculty, staff and administration this year. Yes, you read that right … 100% participation! All contributions to The Carey Fund, regardless of size, are truly important; every gift matters! Universal participation signals deep and broad community support for The Carey School’s mission as well as the belief that everyone can make a difference in the quality of their child’s education.
Our deepest thanks to the Carey Community at large as well as a final shout-out to the Ambassadors and Committee members who worked so hard to help us reach our goal!
