Express your appreciation for The Cornerstone School and its commitment to future generations by making a donation today. Gifts to the school help provide unique curriculum programs for students, development opportunities for faculty, capital improvements, and tuition assistance. Your donation provides an immediate benefit to the children, faculty, and programs of our school. We offer a variety of gift options to provide you with maximum convenience and flexibility. From planned giving to online donations, making a contribution is as simple as it is impactful.


As a non-profit 501(c)(3) independent school, The Cornerstone School relies on philanthropic support from our families and community partners. Each student's education is financed by both tuition and annual giving funds. Annual giving ensures that The Cornerstone School can maintain its reputation of providing an unprecedented educational experience. This is the legacy of The Cornerstone School, and we invite you to be a part of it.

Your contribution to the Annual Fund supports our mission to prepare students for success with an innovative curriculum and inspirational teaching that develops a passion for learning. Every year, every gift, of every size truly makes a difference. Our annual giving season is every year from July 1 to June 30. We encourage families to make a gift they are proud of and everyone is asked to participate. 

Please join us in making an impact on the lives of our students. If you have any questions about The Cornerstone Annual Fund, feel free to contact our Development Office at (352) 351-8840 ext. 230. If you would like to make an online donation, please click here.



The Cornerstone School Annual Day of Giving is held each year on the National Day of Giving, which is the Tuesday following the Thanksgiving holiday. The Cornerstone Day of Giving is an opportunity for families, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to come together and make an impact by donating to the Cornerstone Annual Fund. 

This year The Cornerstone School Day of Giving will be held on November 29, 2022. We are hoping for 100% participation among our board, faculty, staff, and families. Every gift of every size can make a difference in the lives of our students.
