Why Giving Matters
Childpeace is lucky to have an enthusiastic, robust community of supporters made up of parents, staff, students, alumni and friends who play a key role in the continued success of our school.
Childpeace relies on a combination of tuition revenue and the vital private support of our community members to provide gap funding for a very small percentage of operational costs and allow for growth, development, special projects, activities and programs as needed throughout the year.
