Campaigns

Campaigns are large-scale, special fundraising initiatives for specific and targeted projects. Campaigns provide the additional financial resources necessary for major enhancements to the School, and are therefore frequently transformative in nature. Each campaign serves to sustain and improve Charles Armstrong School and the experience it provides for our students.

What to Expect From a Campaign:

  • Campaigns generally last approximately three to five years
  • Parents are typically only asked to participate in one campaign during their student's
    time at Armstrong 

What is The Difference Between The Annual Fund And a Campaign?

Annual Fund dollars are the cornerstone of Armstrong's fundraising initiatives and offer direct support to the operating budget. Campaign dollars are solicited for a specific purpose such as campus refurbishment, land acquisition, or endowment. Due to the length and scope of campaigns, they usually have a higher monetary goal than the Annual Fund.

Transforming Lives- Our Current Campaign

Armstrong is currently in a comprehensive campaign that supports Armstrong faculty; students and their families; curriculum; and improvements to both interior and exterior learning spaces. The $9 million campaign comprises three areas: capital which includes Landscape for Learning; increasing endowment which will expand the school’s endowed funds; and, programs which have immediate impact for Armstrong’s students and faculty. 

 

Endowments

Endowments provide long-term support to ensure Armstrong financial stability. Funds contributed to an endowment provide permanent funding. Endowment gifts are typically solicited as part of a campaign. The School has several endowed funds:
