43% of our families have donated to the Cougar Fund. We welcome ANY donation amount with a goal of 100% participation. Please donate today!

The Kittredge Cougar Fund

Just under half of our families have donated to The Cougar Fund. We ask that all families contribute to The Cougar Fund before the start of the school year to ensure that we have the resources in our 2023-24 budget. We welcome any donation amount. Our goal is for 100% family participation and $100,000 in total donations.

The Cougar Fund of the KMS Foundation presents an opportunity for you and your family to support the education of our students with an annual financial donation. Your generosity will help support a top-notch educational and enriching experience for your students, provide the teachers with high quality professional learning resources and conferences, and bridge the gap between our resource plans and the funds provided by DeKalb County.

This fund is THE ONLY fundraiser for our school, eliminating the need to sell wrapping paper or sponsor running laps to raise money.

We ask that all families contribute to The Cougar Fund before the start of the school year to ensure that we have the resources in our 2023-24 budget. Our goal is for 100% family participation and $100,000 in total donations.

As you consider your ability to give, please review the donation levels and benefits here. The suggested donation per student is $400, and we welcome any donation amount. Please give the best you can. 100% of your donation goes directly to the school and is tax-deductible.

The students and staff of Kittredge Magnet School for High Achievers are so grateful for your support.
