The One Fund: one gift, once a year

The One Fund campaign kicks off in the fall and lasts for a few weeks. Your One Fund gift can be earmarked to support Academics; Athletics; Fine Arts; the Parent Association; or Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Leadership gifts are recognized at the $1,000 level and above.

Giving Levels

Up to $499: Blue and Gold Club
$500–999: Bearcat Benefactors
$1,000–2,499: Head of School Leadership Society

  • Planned Gifts

    Planned gifts allow you to benefit KCD while also letting you save on taxes, increase your income, and pass more of your estate on to your heirs. Planned gifts can also be truly transformational. KCD’s planned giving society is named for Benjamin G. Robertson Sr., whose will established KCD as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust. This trust has already distributed over $1 million to our permanent endowment and will generate millions more in the years to come.
    If you would like to learn more about the Robertson Planned Giving Society, please contact Gentry Easley.
