A Giving Community

At Shorecrest we are building a legacy of inclusive, innovative and transformational education.

Since 1923, our graduates have taken the lessons they learned at Shorecrest to effect change in their communities -- locally and globally.

Support for Shorecrest comes from the Shorecrest Fund, capital giving, endowed giving and legacy giving

Understanding the urgency and necessity to support an extraordinary education, parents, alumni, and friends lead the charge in laying a foundation of success for our students of today and tomorrow.

Read our giving priorities and FAQs.

Thankfully, we don't do it alone.

Shorecrest’s Mission is augmented by the generosity of our parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends who support the school philanthropically or by effecting change locally, globally or right here at Shorecrest.
