THANK YOU from our students and teachers for helping Catlin Gabel reach this year’s Annual Fund goal

You helped make a Catlin Gabel education a reality for many families, because the Annual Fund makes up the difference between what tuition covers and what it truly costs to educate our students.

How did Catlin Gabel use your Annual Fund contributions?

$35 provided a one-year subscription to Scientific American, New Republic, and Spanish-language People, and a case of recyclable fluorescent light bulbs for classroom lighting

$50 provided two new hardcover nonfiction textbooks on environmental sustainability

$185 provided “no sliver” cedar chip ground cover for the Wilson Playhouse in the Beehive playground

$290 provided funding for the entire 2nd grade to see Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, a play at the Oregon Children’s Theatre

$480 provided 24 practice balls for the soccer teams

$500 provided a set of high-quality reference books on cutting-edge developments in biology and chemistry

$1,600 provided one laptop computer for a teacher

$3,000 provided new basketball uniforms

$5,000 provided the full cost for 6th grade field trips for the year
