The Annual Fund is an essential component of Caldwell Academy’s operating budget. It is an opportunity for our parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and friends to invest in the future of the school. The Annual Fund is the school’s primary fundraising initiative that is necessary for bridging the financial gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Caldwell education. The Annual Fund supports the school’s daily operational needs, faculty professional development, athletic and fine arts programs and tuition assistance. By supporting the Annual Fund, your tax deductible gift will help keep Caldwell’s tuition levels down.
Why does your participation in the Annual Fund matter?
Your participation is vital in demonstrating to the community that our families support the mission and educational excellence of Caldwell Academy. The participation numbers are just as important as our monetary goal for the Annual Fund. It is important to show outside corporations and foundations that our families are committed. As a result, those entities are more inclined to support and give back to Caldwell. Caldwell Academy’s 2017-2018 Annual Fund campaign will start on October 16. Your gift can make a difference as no gift is too small.

Why do we give to the Annual Fund?
“Caldwell is just a really special place. You can walk the halls or visit a classroom and feel that there’s a sweet spirit in this school. The faculty and staff desire to cultivate our students’ hearts and minds. They pray with and for our children, pointing them towards strong faith and outstanding character. And they teach excellently, making education come alive to our children. Caldwell is such an encouragement to our family.” The Cummings Family
“We see our children’s education as our investment in the future, so giving to the Annual Fund is a priority. We also view Caldwell as a ministry that touches the lives of over 800 students and their families each year, not to mention the surrounding community. That makes giving to the Annual Fund a way of giving back to the Lord what He has given us as He calls us to continue this work.” The Streng Family
“We give to the Annual Fund not only to sustain Caldwell’s excellence in education, but also because of how much we appreciate the excellence of Caldwell’s educators. We want to invest in Caldwell to support those teachers and their investment in our children – an investment that will pay off for generations to come.” The Helton Family
