Strengthen the Student Experience Through the Kent Annual Fund
A gift to the Kent Annual Fund is a powerful demonstration of belief in Kent’s students, faculty, and staff.
Gifts to Kent’s Annual Fund are directed to key operating expenses and help the school to:
- Provide scholarship aid to 40% of our students
- Maintain small class sizes that optimize learning
- Attract and retain exceptional faculty by offering competitive compensation and professional development opportunities
- Offer a full-range of extra-curricular opportunities in athletics, the visual and performing arts, science, technology, and emerging fields.
