Support The Carey School
There are many ways to support The Carey School. Financial support opportunities include contributing annually to the Annual Fund or purchasing a granite tile at the Alumni Walkway. Alumni volunteers also support The Carey School through a very special kind of donation: The Gift of Time.
Like most independent schools, The Carey School depends on the financial gifts from our school community (that includes current families, alumni and their families, grandparents, faculty, staff and administration) to bridge the gap between tuition income and the actual operating budget for providing excellent education to Carey School students.
The Annual Fund is The Carey School’s annual giving campaign that supports the school’s operating budget. It provides up to 10% of Carey’s operating revenue, which must grow every year as the operating budget increases. These gifts allow The Carey School to continue to provide students with outstanding programs, dedicated teachers, continuous facility improvements, and a diverse school community.

Please support The Carey School by giving to our Annual Fund. Click here to download the Pledge Card, print it out and to The Carey School, Advancement Office, One Carey School Lane, San Mateo, CA 94403-1299 or fax it to (650) 345-2528.

Alumni Tile Recognition Program
A donation to The Carey School provides a wonderful opportunity to recognize on a permanent basis your family and child, a class or classmate, a teacher or individual who influenced your life at The Carey School.
Donations of $1,000 and above will be permanently recognized using personally engraved granite tiles placed within the “Alumni Walkway” which is part of the new school entrance. Donors may consider two-year pledges for their engraved tile.
By making a gift to The Carey School or by joining with members of your family or classmates in making a contribution, you will be ensuring the future of quality, independent education which begun 74 years ago by the Carey family. Your gift or pledge can be tailored to suit your needs.
Besides giving to the Annual Fund, you may choose to give to The Carey School’s endowment. Your endowment gift can help ensure the same quality academic and enrichment programs are available for all future Carey School students.
