Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is critical to supporting the mission of Stephen Gaynor School. An investment in the Annual Fund is an investment in students’ long-term success. We rely on generous support from Gaynor parents, alumni, grandparents, foundations and community members in order to meet our most pressing operational needs. We hope you will consider making an annual fund gift this school year that is significant to you.

Every gift to Gaynor is meaningful and appreciated! Donors who give $2,500 or more a year will receive special recognition as a member of the Founders’ Society. The levels are listed below.

All gifts will be listed by cluster in the annual report, no matter the size.


Ambassadors are critical to the Annual Fund’s success. Not only do they help to raise critical funds to support the school’s mission, they are integral in helping to build a stronger community among Gaynor parents.

We are grateful to our Annual Fund Co-Chairs Darya Mastronardi (Red) and Michele Kofman (Red and Gold) for spearheading our efforts for the 2017-18 year.
