Funding the Field

The Prout School has made a commitment to ensure the field is funded 100% through philanthropic donations - of cash and in-kind goods and services. We do not want to raise tuition rates or incur significant debt. Which means we need you!

Our campaign committee is busy approaching current families, alumni, families of alumni, local businesses and foundations in order to secure the funding we'll need to build the new field. To date, we have received $359,000 in gifts and pledges. Here are just a few ways you can help make the new field a reality. All donations will be recognized as outlined below AS WELL AS recognized on a donor wall positioned outside the entrance to the field. 

Naming Opportunities

Of course, with a goal of $2.5 million, larger gifts are critical to the project's success. We are fortunate indeed to have recognized several such gifts to date. Donors of $25,000 or more may identify one of the naming opportunities outlined in the column on the left of this page. Pledges for these larger dollar commitments may be paid over 3-5 years. These naming opportunities are a wonderful way to remember a Crusader for a lifetime. 

Sponsorship Opportunities for Local Businesses

Local businesses can reserve a place on the fence for their 4.5' x 8' company banner. Spaces will be reserved for three years, with first right of refusal for additional three-year periods. Limited spots are available. Levels are $5,000/3 years or $10,000/3 years (premium placement). Very limited spaces available. Contact Nicole Kelly at or at (401) 789-9262 x 537 for details. 

Buy a Brick Program

Make a lasting mark on The Prout School campus and help build the new turf field by buying and personalizing a brick. Two sizes available. Limited quantities.

This is a wonderful way to honor the Crusader athlete in your family, memorialize a loved one, give a shout out to your favorite teacher or coach  or show your support of the Prout athletics program. We especially love the idea of adding bricks for Crusader athletes and teams from the first 50 years of Prout’s athletic program.

These bricks will form the welcome plaza around the flagpole at the entrance to the new field – once it’s built! Order now!
