The Kentfield School District depends on the over $1 million KIK Annual Contribution as part of its annual budget. Even with state and local funding, there is a gap in funding for each KSD student. The $1 million+ KIK Contribution helps to bridge this gap—funding needed for our students and schools—and represents approximately 5% of the KSD budget.
As dollars are raised within the current school year, KIK disperses those funds in four installments throughout the year to be used for Bacich and Kent schools. As funds are raised, funds flow real-time directly to the schools:
- 1st Installment: October
- 2nd Installment: December
- 3rd Installment: March
- 4th Installment: May
