Kentucky Avenue School will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2022 and we can’t wait to get the party started! Anyone who has ever met a current KAS student, been a KAS student, met a current KAS parent or grandparent, been a KAS parent or grandparent, met a current KAS educator or been a KAS educator you KNOW that KAS is a special place. Our tagline, “Small Classes. Big Ideas.” couldn’t be more true. This special place in the heart of Shadyside holds a very special place in the hearts of many. On any given day you will hear children talk about axolotls, see children experiment with paint, and smell amazing smells coming from the KAS Cafe.
No doubt about it, KAS is a special place.
As you know charitable gifts to Kentucky Avenue School are vital to the ongoing development of the school and each gift reflects the strong spirit of philanthropy and culture of giving that is evident within our school community. Like other independent schools, Kentucky Avenue School depends on the Annual Fund to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student.
What makes our Annual Fund different from other fundraisers is that the money raised is unrestricted. That means that the money can be used anywhere it is needed and where it will benefit our students the most. In recent years our generous donors have allowed KAS to build a dedicated learning lab and library, to upgrade computing technology, and to sponsor enrichment programs.
Every dollar donated provides important support, whether it is directed to the faculty members who teach, learn and grow; the programs and facilities that open up a world of opportunity for our students; or the tuition assistance funds that allow deserving children to bring all they have to offer to KAS.
To begin the 20th Anniversary Celebration, we would love to see the number 20 somewhere in your donation.
We are able to accept automated sustaining gifts. Please consider giving monthly using one of the choices below, or customize the amount and schedule to your preferences.
