Help Us Rock the Clock:
689 Donors in 24 hours
(one donor for every foot of Numeral Rock’s elevation)
to secure a $50,000 challenge gift!
Join us in celebrating your class, your student's class, or simply your Kent pride, and this special tradition by making a gift—of any amount—to the Kent Annual Fund as part of LoveKent Rocks. This year, we are especially grateful to have students on campus participating in long-standing traditions, like Rock Day.
Your gift today not only provides critical funding to allow Kent the flexibility in addressing campus needs, but it also ensures that students will make lasting memories through community experiences that will continue to shape them, generation after generation.
Help us reach the summit:
To keep the original rivalry going, the class year with the most donors will be displayed (virtually) on Numeral Rock! Help your class climb to the top of the leaderboard by making your gift today and help us spread the word.
Parents, Grandparents, Faculty, Staff, and Students
In addition to the $50,000 challenge gift, if we reach our goal of 689 individual donations, there will be a celebratory day in March! Make your LoveKent gift today and help spread the word.

Did you know?
In the spring of 1908, a group of Sixth-Form students painted “09” on the face of Numeral Rock as part of a friendly rivalry with the Class of 1910. The Rock Day tradition was born.
When the Girls School opened, students on the Hill created their own tradition by painting numerals that were then displayed on campus. Now every May, all Fifth Formers hike to Numeral Rock to paint their class year on it, staking claim to their status as rising seniors.
