Leadership Giving

The 1906 Club

Since Kent was founded in 1906, the School has benefited from the generosity of a community committed to the School’s mission. The 1906 Club recognizes our most outstanding supporters of the Kent Annual Fund, the endowment, and capital funds. 

Members are recognized for their leadership support of at least $1,906 annually - during the fiscal year (July 1- June 30) in our Annual Report of Donors. Members are also invited to attend special recognition events with Head of School Mike Hirschfeld.

Donors at this level make a tremendous impact, providing the resources to fund Kent’s financial aid program, to compensate Kent’s outstanding faculty and staff, and to make possible the many opportunities that define the Kent experience.

Donors may take advantage of their companies' matching gift contributions to qualify for membership.

KEY Society

Kent’s excellence is a direct result of the contributions of loyal alumni, students, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends. Kent’s most loyal donors are recognized as members of the KEY Society (Kent Every Year), which honors those who have contributed for three or more consecutive years – including the current year.  We are grateful for the collective support of KEY Society members who reaffirm their belief in Kent’s mission through their annual gifts. 

Bell Tower Society

In the spring of 1991 Kent School established the Bell Tower Society “to recognize, honor and thank those who have determined to reach beyond their own lives to enhance opportunities for future generations of Kent School youth by thoughtfully including the School in their estate planning.” The Bell Tower Society now has more than 600 members, including alumni, parents of alumni and friends of Kent. Through their generosity and foresight, Bell Tower Society members have provided an enduring legacy that supports Kent’s endowment and strengthens the School for generations to come.
