Gaynor Giving Week is a time when our community comes together to give support to the Annual Fund.
The Annual Fund helps sustain the mission of the school: to unlock each child’s potential as a learner.

The Annual Fund is the fundraising priority of Gaynor and helps to fund the day-to-day operations of the school.
This includes our most important resource: our faculty, specialists, administrators and staff.
Over 80% of Gaynor’s operating expenses each year are faculty-related.
Giving as generously as you can to the Annual Fund allows Gaynor
to attract and retain the best educators for our students and maintain our critical 3:1 ratio.

Gifts to this year’s Annual Fund will be accepted during our fiscal year
that started September 1, 2018 and ends August 31, 2019.
If you wish to make a pledge during Giving Week to be paid at a later time,
please contact [email protected].
