Fay School Annual Fund


Philanthropy is a fundamental element of the Fay equation. From our founding 30 years ago, it is by the generosity of our supporters that our school thrives. The Annual Fund serves as the most critical fundraising effort of the year. It allows us to provide ongoing support to the operating budget, offer competitive salaries to faculty, sustain and update existing curricula, and maintain a campus that has become as important to our students as any other part of their Fay experience. Secondly, the Annual Fund allows us to explore new possibilities each year for our community, including technology, professional development, and new programming.  

With expenses to run this annual campaign at less than 2%, gifts to the Annual Fund have a direct and tangible impact on the daily experiences of your children.

This five-week campaign will begin in September and, because of the low cost to implement, will have a tangible impact on our students and school. During our 2019-2020 drive, we set the bar high with 100% Board and Staff participation and 99% Fay Family participation. This high participation rate is a massive accomplishment for any independent school. The impact of gifts to The Fay School’s Annual Fund is reflected in the vibrant faces and stories of our faculty and students.  

We hope you will consider joining us in this effort as we seek to continue this great tradition of community, philanthropy, and shared vision.
