In acknowledgment of those who make it possible for Kingsbury to perform its mission and who contribute generously to The Kingsbury Center, portions of our facility may be named to provide lasting recognition of past and future support. You may designate this naming opportunity to honor a family member, to memorialize a friend, or to associate your name forever with The Kingsbury Center. Look for more information soon on naming opportunities connected to our newest building expansion and renovation.
Your commitment and dedication will be acknowledged in a lasting manner, and admired by current and future generations of Kingsbury students, families, volunteers, and staff. Contact Ms. Jo Boukhira in our Development Department for details.
A gift of appreciated stock is always welcome. You will receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the appreciated stock and will not be taxed on the appreciation of value.
Kingsbury participates in both the United Way Campaign and the Combined Federal Campaign. Our designation number is 8934. We do not always receive lists of those donating through workplace giving or the amount donated, so we ask that you notify the Development Department of your designation so that we can recognize your gift properly.

Gifts to Kingsbury are a wonderful way to memorialize a special loved one or to mark a milestone in one's life. Such gifts are fully tax-deductible, and the person or family in whose memory or honor the gift is made will receive a special card acknowledging the occasion and noting your gift.
