Please consider becoming a “Friend of Kilgour” to support our school as a family or company sponsor.
The Kilgour PTA offers a sponsorship program with a variety of options that provide effective ways for families and businesses to introduce themselves or stay connected to our unique Kilgour School community. We encourage you to look at each level and join at the level of commitment that is right for you. If you would like to contribute in other ways, we also appreciate donated auction items, gift certificates, promotional discounts, or a cash donations.
