Why I Give

When my son started at Carlmont, I was impressed with the many programs available to him to set him up for success. It is reassuring to know he has access to support in his academics as well as for his mental health, should he need it.

Laura Reed

Why I Give

Our family has prioritized financially supporting CAF because we have seen the wonderful opportunities this money provides. Both of our children have participated in instrumental music at Carlmont and CAF supports the program with funding for the second teacher.

Brian and Kim Bishop

Why I Give

We donate to CAF because as members of our community we feel we all share a responsibility in ensuring that our children get the best educational experience possible. The funding we get from the state is not enough!

Michelle Farrell

Why I Give

We donate to CAF because it is an investment in our children and the entire community — for now and in the future.

Wendy and John Garrish

Why I Give

We have been very impressed with the organization of CAF, their stewardship of our donation dollars, and we feel that investing in CAF is a great way to help support our children.

Consider a stock donation

Did you know that appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift? When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to CAF you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value — and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).
