Crestmont School is funded primarily by tuition, which we strive to keep as low as possible. This means there is a gap between tuition and our costs, particularly as we improve our facilities and programs. Whether for high-quality literature, or an entrance gate, a playground structure or to add to our financial aid pool, your donation directly enhances the educational experience for Crestmont students. Crestmont is a 501(c)3 charity, and all your gifts are tax-deductible. You can verify our status on Guidestar.
Our EIN is 94-1724056
Ways to Support Crestmont
- Annual Campaign
At Crestmont, our teachers create a curriculum that respects and responds to the dignity and individuality of each child. Our goals are to provide a well-rounded education and to be competitive with surrounding private schools. Supplementing our tuition dollars through financial gifts helps keep tuition at a competitive rate and provides important programs and improvements that are essential to our mission.

Every year Crestmont holds several fundraising events that are great fun and important revenue sources that help to close the gap between tuition and our operating costs. We have benefit family entertainment, Bowling for Dollars at the Albany Bowl, a Silent Auction and Dance Party, a garage sale and other events.

Every year we have a SUPER FUN PARTY AND AUCTION (part silent, part live and part online) to raise money for our Annual Fund, supporting our Scholarship Fund and Teacher Endowment Fund.
