Annual Fund

Annual Fund Ambassadors help build school community by inspiring collective participation in the Annual Fund. Ambassadors are critical to the Annual Fund’s success. Not only do they help to raise vital funds to support the school’s mission, they are integral in helping to build a stronger community among Gaynor parents. Find out why Gaynor parents give to the Annual Fund on our Why I Give page.

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. For answers to frequently asked questions, download the Annual Fund FAQ.
