2023-24 Annual Fund Chairs

Dear Fay Family, 
As parents of three children at The Fay School— Ethan ('26), Emma ('27), and Emilia ('28), we are so grateful to be part of this wonderful school. We are entering our sixth year as part of the Fay Family and are as excited as ever for all that is to come this year.  

We fell in love with Fay the minute we toured the campus and witnessed the beautiful grounds and learned about the innovative and forward-thinking approaches to teaching and learning.  What stood out the most, though, was seeing the big, bright smiles on all the children's faces.  

We love Fay for many reasons. One, our children have grown so much academically and emotionally because of the school's emphasis on leadership development and emotional intelligence. Our children love visiting and learning in the chicken coop and garden. They love each of their amazing teachers every school year, too. Lastly, we have been fortunate to meet so many Fay parents at the same stage in life, and that has provided our family with a community of support and friendship well beyond our expectations. We know that our family has made lifelong friendships at Fay!   

One of The Fay School's core strengths is its strong sense of community and support. For two years running, Fay has achieved 100% parent participation in the Annual Fund and our goal is to continue that momentum into this school year’s Annual Fund. This participation rate is unprecedented in the independent school world and helps The Fay School keep standing out! Regardless of the amount that a family gives, a contribution to TEAM FAY shows your support of the school's mission, staff, teachers, and, most importantly, your child. Your participation signifies a commitment to The Fay School, beyond what tuition covers, as it nurtures, guides, and develops all our children into the future leaders of the world.    

Let’s go all in in for 100%, Gators!  

With appreciation,  
Lina Ortega and Joseph Ngo

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.
