Annual Fund

Philanthropy is a fundamental element of the Fay equation. From our founding over 30 years ago, it is by the generosity of our supporters that our school thrives. 

Monica Berckley, Director of Advancement

Dear Fay Family,
As parents of three children at The Fay School— Annabel ('24), Ellie ('26), and Jack ('27), we feel grateful to have found the school. From the moment we toured the campus, we knew it was right for our children. It wasn’t just the beautiful campus, gardens, chicken coop, and idyllic outdoor setting that attracted us to Fay; it was so much more. It’s a feeling you get when you see the kids smiling, watch them in action on the campus, and hear from their passionate teachers. We are constantly blown away by how much our children learn. Whether it’s an outdoor education class, a math lesson on the porch, or Gaga ball during recess, the energy and positivity surrounding our kids’ experiences is palpable. The school's focus on leadership development through emotional intelligence, highlighted in the recent strategic plan, sets the school apart as the gold standard in Houston.  

The Fay Community is a huge part of what makes The Fay School so special. Our diverse group of engaged parents, faculty, and staff see the best for our children and are committed to their education. That is why, for the second year in a row, our goal is 100% commitment from our families. Why is 100% participation so important? Regardless of the amount, a contribution to TEAM FAY shows your support of the school’s mission, staff, teachers, and most importantly your child. It not only signifies your role in our community, but also your role in the growth of our school. 

It is our honor to be Annual Fund Chairs this year and we hope you consider supporting this worthy cause. All in for 100%! 

With Gator Pride,
