Give every year. Make a difference every day.
I'm in my third year in med school at UC San Francisco and I know I wouldn't be here without the colleagues and teachers who inspired me and helped me fall in love with science at York. I'm happy to give back any way I can! –Steffani Campbell '08
Your generosity counts. In fiscal year* 2016, 15% of our alumni donated to The York Fund for a total of almost $55,000! We appreciate your generous support!
In 2016-17, our goal is to again reach 15% participation, which means we need YOU. Each and every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference in the experience of our students and faculty.
All of us —trustees, faculty, and staff — but most especially, our students — appreciate your continued support, as well as your heartfelt consideration for making the most generous contribution possible to the York Fund.
*York's fiscal year runs July 1 to June 30.
TOP REASONS TO GIVE
At York there's so many reasons to like school--excellent and caring faculty, outstanding preparation for college, a diverse student body, a nurturing and accepting community, robust arts, and an inclusive athletic program. All are made possible by gifts to The York Fund.
Most years, 40% or more of our students receive need-based financial aid. Generous alumni help make York's commitment to enrolling the most academically qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances. Your gift helps York provide financial aid at a level that is double the national average for independent schools.
Gifts to The York Fund support professional growth for faculty. Conferences, workshops, and targeted learning experiences provide teachers opportunites to bring new techniques and resources back to the classroom and refresh their skills.
Alumni participation in giving is one way other community members, corporations, and foundations decide about donating to York School. Strong support from those who know the School best sends a strong message to these potential donors.
We believe every York student has the tools and knowledge to change the world and we see this in the rich stories of our alumni. Your gift to The York Fund makes the York experience possible for a diverse group of independent, creative thinkers.
When you were a student, someone gave for you. Tuition has never covered the full cost of a York education. Every year York must raise the difference to bridge the gap between what tuition provides and the actual cost of educating a York student.
Alumni giving is vital to the School's ongoing success. Currently, 18% of alumni give to The York Fund. Make your gift and you'll be supporting the school you love and helping us reach our goals.
Your gift will be put to work immediately, financing things like innovative academic programs, enriching arts and athletic programs, teaching and professional growth, campus technology, and campus improvements.
Every gift, no matter the size is used to support this vibrant learning environment. We understand not everyone can make leadership-level donations. As a small school, our success depends on gifts of all amounts from every segment of our community--alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends.
