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 $1,000,000 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.
Of course, with a goal of $2.3 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 claim one of the naming opportunities as follows (others are available):
Complex Name: Reserved
Field Name: Reserved
Scoreboard (two available): $100,000 each
Tennis Courts: $50,000
Softball Field: $50,000
Baseball Field: $50,000
Boys Locker Room: $25,000
Girls Locker Room: Reserved
Golf Simulator Room: Reserved
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. The Diocese of Providence has final approval of all naming requests.
Local businesses can reserve a place on the fence for their company banner. Corporate sponsorships, many of which include the opportunity to advertise on the fence surrounding the new field, range from $1,000 to $10,000. Click here for details.
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!
