Annual Fund

Crane’s Annual Fund provides vital funding for our current operating budget. Each fall, we ask everyone in our community to contribute with a meaningful tax-deductible gift. The Annual Fund makes up a critical one-tenth of Crane’s annual expenses: one-tenth of each building, each teacher’s salary, each microscope in the science lab, each soccer ball, and each drama costume, just to name a few. In this way, the Annual Fund benefits every Crane student.

Since 2000, we have had 100% participation from our Board of Trustees and Staffulty. In addition, we have had 98% or higher parent participation for the last four years. Gifts of any size are welcome.
