Keystone parents come through for Annual Fund
From Director of Development Mrs. Villafranca: Keystone parents continued to show their support with strong participation in this year’s Annual Fund. We achieved 94.26 percent participation and raised $195,024 within five weeks. This far outpaces the participation among independent schools nationally, which ranges around 64%.
Your gifts to the Annual Fund help provide the extras that make Keystone a special place. Tuition covers educational and normal school expenses. The Annual Fund allows Keystone to provide additional professional development for teachers, more technology, and much more!
