Ways to Give
OPPORTUNITIES FOR GIVING
At Christ Episcopal School, the act of giving is the rule rather than the exception. The benevolent gifts, which help to make CES financially stable both in the present as well as in the future, are used to support the school's efforts on behalf of the students and teachers. There are several events and giving opportunities that one can support throughout the year.
Christ Episcopal School Fund
This is the single most important gift you can make to CES each year. The Christ Episcopal School Fund touches every member of our community; it sustains our daily operations and covers the gap between tuition paid and the actual cost of a CES education. Like other independent schools, the CES budget is based on the projected generosity of current parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni families, Board of Governors, faculty, staff and friends who contribute to this fund. We rely on every member of the CES community to give commensurate with their financial ability. No gift is too small or too large! And all Gifts are tax deductible under the law (consult your tax advisor for specifics). Your annual gift to the CES Fund is an investment in the education of every CES student.
Diversity Outreach Scholarship Fund
The Diversity Outreach Scholarship is awarded to academically qualified students who come from a lower income status and whose race, ethnicity, or national origin comprises a significant part of the Rockville community but is underrepresented in our school. This scholarship provides not only a valuable opportunity to the recipients but also enhances the education of all students as they learn to value and appreciate differences in others.
Donna Diamond Scholarship Fund for Middle School
This fund provides financial assistance and recognition to an incoming student entering sixth through eighth grade.
Climbing Each Step: Playground Campaign
This fund provides the equipment necessary to keep our children active during much needed outdoor play time.
The CES Golf Classic
Individual and business sponsors along with golfers join together in support of a day full of fresh air and fun with 18 holes of golf. Proceeds go directly to the Diversity Outreach Scholarship Fund.
The Spring Auction and Gala
This is an evening of food, friendship and fundraising. The proceeds from the dinner along with the silent and live auction go to support the operations of CES.
