Support CRS

Elevate & Celebrate

Elevate & Celebrate

Elevate & Celebrate is a comprehensive $10.5M campaign at Charles River School that started in June 2016.  The three main objectives of the campaign are to: 

  • build a new middle school building for the school's 6-8 grades, including a new science laboratory ($7.4M); 
  • strengthen the school’s endowment to provide the school greater financial flexibility in the future ($1M) and;
  • protect the CRS Annual Fund ($2.1M) in the campaign's active fundraising years to ensure programs receive the support needed after tuition revenue. 

What CRS Gives

Due to extraordinary support from our donors, including current and past CRS families, the school has secured $10.1 million as of June 30, 2018.

Our fundraising work towards our revised campaign goal of $10.5M is far from complete. While the middle school construction project is almost complete, we hope all members of the CRS community will contribute to the Elevate & Celebrate campaign as best they can in order to help the school fund this important building project AND strengthen CRS' financial position.

For more information about how to pledge your support, please contact CRS Director of Development and CRS alumna, Jessica Thompson Somol '84 at or 508-785-8215.
