WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Cluny School strives to keep its tuition affordable for all families. As a result, we rely on the generous support of parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff, Board members, and friends of Cluny School. There are many ways to lend your financial support to Cluny School.
The Annual Fund
In November, Cluny School kicks off its Annual Fund Appeal. Each year we focus on an immediate need of the school. Support of the Annual Fund is a critical piece to the daily operation of the school. Many people are not aware that tuition only covers a portion of the Cluny School education experience. Gifts and pledges can be made anytime throughout the year.
The Capital Campaign
Gifts and pledges to the School's Capital Campaign can be made at anytime. Contributions support the School's new facility plans.
Unity Walkway Commemorative Brick Campaign
The brick campaign creates the opportunity to make a lasting visual gift to Cluny School in honor of your family, your children, a favorite teacher or in memory or honor of a loved one. The name "The Unity Walkway" was chosen as we are now gathered under one roof as the Cluny School Family. Your commemorative brick purchase includes the engraved brick paver permanently installed in the Cluny Unity Walkway which connects the new PK and Kindergarten Wing to the Main Entrance.
To purchase your commemorative brick paver, return your completed Unity Walkway Order Form to Cluny School, 75 Brenton Road, Newport, RI 02840 Attention: Unity Walkway.
Memorial donations are accepted throughout the year. The honoree's family is notified of your gift. Please include contact information with your gift.
An endowment fund provides scholarship assistance to Cluny families in need of assistance.
Louise Costley Scholarship
The Louise Costley Scholarship was set up to honor Louise Costley's dedication to Cluny School for over 34 years. Louise not only worked for Cluny School but she is a past parent. The Scholarship is given out each year to a family living the Cluny Mission and in need of financial assistance. Contributions can be made to the scholarship fund throughout the year.
