The Kentfield School District has included, and depends on, a $1 million KIK Annual Commitment as part of its 2020-21 annual budget. Even with state and local funding, there is a gap in funding for each KSD student. The $1 million KIK Annual Commitment helps to bridge this gap—funding needed for our students and schools—and represents approximately 5% of the KSD annual 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. Basically, as funds are raised, funds flow real-time directly to the schools:

  • 1st Installment:  October 2020
  • 2nd Installment:  December 2020
  • 3rd Installment:  March 2021
  • 4th Installment:  May 2021



2019-20 KIK Net Revenues by Campaign
Family Giving Campaign $1,030,000
Partners in Education Campaign $47,000
Spring Auction Event $90,000
Family Fun Day $9,000
Fund-a-Need Program*  * see below








*Fund-a-Need dollars are not included as part of KIK Annual Commitment. Raised as part of the Spring Auction Event, these dollars fund targeted, small-scale district and school-community needs.

**KIK is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization , #EIN 94-2665-683. Administrative / office expenses for 2019-20 account for approximately 10% of total net funds raised. See Tax Form 990.
