Giving

Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends,

It is an honor to share with you the many programs and projects made possible through your support. The Heights would not be the wonderful school it is if not for your commitment to sustaining excellence.

Year after year, you continue to provide generous assistance to the School, which provides critical opportunities to our students and to those who teach, coach, and advise them. New records continue to be established in annual giving, leadership giving, and program endowments. As generous benefactors you have:

  • Given more than $12 million to the Tower Campaign, the School’s first capital campaign launched in 2006 to construct the new administrative building and chapel, and to renovate the Middle School building and upper athletic field.
  • Contributed more than $4.96 million in unrestricted gifts to the Crescite Fund since 2008 to support mission critical programs at The Heights.
  • Raised more than $627,199 for the Headmaster’s Fund for Faculty since its inception in 2012 to provide professional development opportunities for our exceptional faculty.
  • Created seven named endowed funds for Scholarships and Professional Development with gifts of $2.27 million since 2011.
  • Completed the construction of a new state-of-the-art weight training facility, reconditioned and added scoreboards to both the upper and lower athletic fields, constructed new baseball dugouts, and made many additions and improvements to our athletic programs.

This is a tremendous list of accomplishments you have made possible for your sons and the men who teach them. On behalf of everyone at The Heights, thank you.

As we work hard to continue this momentum, your generosity of resources, time, and interest will make The Heights’ future even more exciting and vibrant.

Sincerely,

Philip J. McGovern
Chief Finance and Development Officer
