Spring Appeal: Board Challenge Match

As the year winds down, we invite you to join us in pausing and reflecting on Kirby's heroes: our incredible faculty.

Our brilliant, dedicated educators have worked harder, longer, and under extraordinary, often traumatic circumstances, with steadfast commitment as well as a pay-freeze, in order to help Kirby School serve students through the crisis.

An abundance of unexpected expenses made it necessary for Kirby to dip into our reserves to meet the challenges. Our team tightened their belts to get through it together. 

Faculty are the heart and soul of this institution. To demonstrate their commitment to faculty, the Board pledges $60,000 to inspire matching funds from the Kirby Community in our spring appeal to support our faculty.

With your help, we will raise a total of $120,000 to give faculty a much needed pay raise next year and continue the current levels of health benefit contributions.

Thank you for your generous support!

As a Board of Trustees, we believe it is imperative to support the Faculty and Staff of Kirby by contributing a challenge match of $60,000. We appreciate the sacrifices made by all this year and feel that additional funding is critical during this challenging time.

Mike Gull, Chair, Board of Trustees
