Class Gift ideas

Many alumni classes choose to make a gift to KIS by setting special giving goals or choosing a project to fund in honor of their reunion. I would like to give those classes with upcoming reunions some ideas to consider if you chose to make a gift to KIS. Please do not feel constrained by these ideas if class members are interested in supporting a different project. We would be happy to consider your ideas as well.

Examples of recent Class Gifts include:

Scudder Scholarship Fund, Class of '56
Drama Endowment Fund, Class of '58
KIS Archives, Class of '61

Class Reunion gift ideas:

1) Music Department: continue the tradition of excellence and purchase new instruments, primarily for the middle school students. Estimated cost $10,000.

2) Improve the stage at Alumni Hall. Estimated cost, $7,500.

3) Refurbish Bendy Field facilities. Estimated cost, $10,000.

4) Connect a classroom with laptop computers. Estimated cost, $14,000.

5) Construction of quiet study rooms in KIS Library. Estimated cost, $8,000.

6) High school Art department equipment. Estimated cost, $5,000.

7) Tents for Poondi Outdoor Education program. Estimated cost, $2,500.

8) Gift to KIS Excellence in Education Scholarship Fund. Estimated cost, $1 to $100,000.

KIS will recognize gifts in a permanent memorial on campus and in our publications.
