Ways to Give

There are many ways to contribute financially to The Prout School. We are a non-profit organization.

Outright Donations

The Prout School accepts donations in the form of cash, pledges and stock transfers. Donors are able to designate a gift "in memory of" or "in honor of" an individual or group of individuals; that information is published in the fall edition of The Crusader magazine. Checks should be made payable to The Prout School. Our address is 4640 Tower Hill Road, Wakefield, RI 02789.

Special Funds

Contributions to The Prout Fund, our annual fund, are unrestricted. The school administration is able to direct these funds where they are most needed. There are also established "restricted funds" that allow donors to focus their giving on areas that are meaningful to them. Currently, donors are able to direct their contributions - should they so choose - to a number of scholarship funds, an athletic fund and a performing arts fund. The Cross & Tower Fund is in place until $25,000 is raised for the refurbishment of the cross and tower that stands at the center of the school's physical plant.

Fundraising Events

Throughout the year there are many opportunities to mix socializing with fundraising. During the 2017-2018 academic year, our tennis parents will be arranging for four separate "dine outs" in which a percentage of a restaurant's proceeds from a given evening will benefit a project to purchase and install new benches near our tennis courts. Each summer, a golf tournament benefits the athletic trainer fund and the hockey team parents sponsor their own family fundraiser. By far the biggest fundraising event of the year is the Spring Auction!

Our next Spring Auction will take place on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at The Preserve at Boulder Hill in Richmond, RI.

Matching Gifts

Double your donation! Many employers -- including Amica, Citizens Bank, FM Global, Fidelity Investments, General Electric, Raytheon and Textron -- will match a donation to The Prout School dollar for dollar. It's often just a simple on-line process for an employee to apply for a matching gift!

Stop & Shop A+ Program

Register your Stop & Shop card here and, from October 6, 2017 through March 15, 2018, a percentage of your qualified purchases will benefit up to two schools of your choice. The Prout School's ID # is 08404. If you have registered in the past, you do not need to re-register each year. Each year we receive a check for nearly $2,000 from this program.
