Alumni Giving & Volunteering

Why give back?

As alumni, you surely remember the value of a Canterbury education.

Fellow alumna Annie Ritch, Class of 2010, graduated from Cal Tech in 2014, and is now a graduate student researcher at Stanford University.

She had this to say on the matter:

“As a young scientist, I spend my days reading, writing, and searching for novel methods to investigate the systems that characterize our planet. While I'm still finding my exact niche in academia, I am grateful every day for the verbal and quantitative skills I developed in my classes at Canterbury. Furthermore, the passion for science and discovery passed to me through the school's fabulous teachers (shout-out to Mr. Wyness!) has been an unparalleled motivator. Thank you, Canterbury, for giving me better academic preparation than I could have ever asked for!”

Sponsor or Attend Our Community Events

Alumni are encouraged to support Canterbury by being a part of the planning committees for large fundraising and special events, as well as by being event sponsors and attendees.

Crusader A-List: Alumni Annual Giving

When it comes to alumni giving, participation is the name of the game! If everyone gives as he or she is able, we can reach our strategic goals. Your contribution—at any level—is very important. Canterbury applies for local and federal grants on a regular basis. In order to qualify for many of these grants, a 70% participation rate by our constituents (which includes alumni!) is required. In addition, national associations and local organizations inquire about our participation rate. A strong message of commitment by our families, staff, and alumni is given when we exceed 70% participation. See our A-Listers in the 2015 Annual Report.

Take the Alumni Class Challenge and join the A-List today! Give in the amount of your class year (example: $20.16 or $2,016 or $20,160!). Let’s see which class has what it takes to reach 100% participation in the Annual Fund first! Join the A-List.
