TODAY, WE GO ALL IN ON A
FUTURE WE CAN SEE, AND IS
FINALLY WITHIN REACH.

All in for generations with evolving needs and a complex world in front of them. All in for a community whose potential has only begun to be tapped. All in for a school that has been a touchstone of education for over a century, but is raising the bar higher.

TODAY, WE GO ALL IN FOR
THE FUTURE OF KINKAID.

TO WRITE A NEW CHAPTER, AND SHAPE A NEW ERA.

But to do so will require an effort unlike any before it. More than a fundraising committee, and a slick brochure. It will require something much more powerful than that.

IT WILL REQUIRE US. ALL OF US. TOGETHER.

A community of people who care, who do. Who know that this place is an opportunity, not an expectation. Who hold ourselves accountable for the future of all our children. Who know Kinkaid is a name to not just maintain, but a school to believe in… one that has already gone all in for us.

TODAY, KINKAID IS BUILDING MUCH MORE THAN PHYSICAL FACILITIES.

We are building an education for a new, more complex world. Where wellness is valued as much as algebra. Where new ideas and perspectives literally collide on the sidewalks. And where a sense of belonging is more than a headline in an annual report.

THIS IS WHAT WE ARE BUILDING,
AND YOU ARE TOO.

It will not be easy, but it will be done. Because it takes something already built-in to our family: an uncompromising commitment to stand together and do.

So let’s stand up, raise our hands, and let students we will never meet know that we believed in them. Let’s believe in what we are about to do. Let’s believe in us.

IT’S TIME TO GO ALL IN FOR WHO KINKAID WILL BE.

THE KINKAID SCHOOL’S
FOUNDING MISSION:

TO FOSTER “THE WHOLLY HEALTHY CHILD”–

has only grown more relevant through time. We provide an unmatched education, pairing appropriate rigor in academics, the arts, and athletics with leadership development, global citizenship, and a commitment to serving others.

The School’s mission, core values, and strong community – Kinkaid’s deÏning qualities – are the attributes upon which we build. As we plan for the future, these essential traits remain our “North Star.”

THE CAMPAIGN FOR KINKAID

We have formed a strong team of campaign volunteers and have received strong early support from our current and past Board of Trustees as well as other generous and loyal Kinkaid donors.

We seek philanthropic investment in people, places, and programs to:

Create leaders for tomorrow who know not only the possibility of growth but also their responsibility to seek it;

Provide increased opportunities to an education relevant today and responsive to a tomorrow yet to be imagined;

Leverage the exceptional assets of our home - Houston - in energy, medicine, aerospace, and more as part of Kinkaid’s dynamic education; and

Keep our love of children and families at the heart of our inclusive community.

FUNDRAISING PRIORITIES

Our campaign goals are guided by Kinkaid’s five year priorities, affirmed by the Board of Trustees in 2020. The School’s priorities emerged from extensive surveys of parents and alumni; insights from faculty, staff, and students; and the Board’s determination to ensure students and faculty have facilities worthy of their efforts and aspirations.

This will be a comprehensive campaign, including new facilities, programmatic improvement, endowment growth, and sustained annual support essential to the work of students, faculty, and staff.
