Annual Fund

Like most independent schools, the cost of tuition at Cove, whether paid through the school districts or privately, does not fully cover the entire cost of educating our students each year. We count on our donors to close this gap. To do this, we need support from our entire Cove community.

Dollars raised through our Annual Fund touch every child, every day. They enable us to recruit specialists in the field of learning disabilities; they allow for the development of new experiential learning opportunities, and they ensure that we provide the best individualized education program for which Cove is known.

Please consider making a gift today. Every gift is a vote of confidence in the school. Every gift – large or small – truly makes a difference, and is recognized in our annual report. Donors who contribute a gift of $2,500 or more are invited to attend our annual benefactors event at Ravinia Festival in the fall. 

Tribute Gifts
Tribute Gifts are a thoughtful way to honor or remember a special person in your life. We acknowledge all tribute gifts with a special letter to the recipient. 
Employer Matching Gifts
A matching gift from your place of employment is a great way to double your impact. Please check with your employer to see if you have a matching gift program at your company. All you need to do is send the form and we will take care of the rest!
