Meet our Donors
"We believe financial aid lies at the heart of York's mission and an endowment ensures its future. It is the gift that keeps on giving."
Jack and Peggy have a 40-year history of involvement with York and deep commitment to the School's mission, programs, and students. As donors, they have given more than $1 million to York and Peggy is a member of York's Legacy Society. Because of their extraordinary generosity, York students have been given an otherwise unavailable opportunity for success in college and productive, meaningful lives. "Our commitment to York runs deep: a son, daughters and a grandson have graduated with pride; a daughter is currently on faculty and Chuck Downes led York as Headmaster for eight years. Our belief in scholarships also runs strong."

"York’s commitment to knowing each student well and individualized attention was a positive experience for the Oppermans. “Our three children are very different from one another, and York responded to each of them in ways that fit their individual needs.”

"Sometimes it's hard to appreciate things until they're in life's rear view mirror. We had a sense that York was special while we were there, but as alumni there are moments when it comes into even sharper relief. At some point, you know you've said to yourself, 'Whoa, we had it good!' Meanwhile, there are many students who would benefit from the type of environment York provides to learn and grow. Alumni donations made it possible for us. We can help make it possible for others."
Fay and Moj Massoudi (Daniel '15)
"As new young immigrants to this great country, our hope at success was only based on one thing; we wished to acquire a respectable education. Now that our son is in high school, we are so fortunate that York School and its faculty nurture and enrich the students' learning experience and talents and turn them into something greater.
We give because we simply believe that York provides the teaching and the learning environment for our son and other students to thrive not only in high school, but also in their future life as productive members of our society."
