College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

The Holton Fund

Supporting the Holton Experience

The Holton Fund is the primary fundraising effort at Holton-Arms. The School depends on ongoing annual contributions to sustain daily activities, to support excellent faculty, and to look toward the future. From lab equipment to computers, financial aid to sports activities, art classes to school plays, the Holton Fund supports the people and programs that make up the Holton experience for every girl, every day. Since tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Holton education, gifts to the Holton Fund provide funding for the School’s most immediate needs:

  • Compensation and benefits for our talented and dedicated teachers;
  • Equipment and supplies for academic, arts, and athletics programs;
  • Professional development for faculty and staff;
  • Innovations to our rich curricular offerings;
  • Experiential learning opportunities locally, nationally, and globally;
  • Upgrades to instructional technology;
  • Maintenance of our campus and facilities.

As a community, support for The Holton Fund demonstrates our commitment to the School today and to future generations of women whose Holton experience will inspire them to make a difference in a complex and changing world. Each year, we ask all members of the Holton community to make The Holton Fund a philanthropic priority, and we are proud of the strong support from our current families, alumnae, grandparents, alumnae parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the School.
