Philanthropy at Cold Spring School

By design, Cold Spring School is a socio-economically diverse community and as such we recognize that the capacity to give, both time and material wealth, varies from family to family. The work of the Development office facilitates fundraising through a lens that values and respects the range of resources our community, in the broadest sense, has to share.

We also believe childhood is the perfect time to nurture deep-rooted qualities of empathy, compassion and generosity. The school community strives to inspire in our students a willingness to share personal resources, skills and creativity. Through voluntary generosity, adults in our community become models for the behavior we want our students to emulate.

The tactical and strategic work of development and fundraising efforts at Cold Spring School is carried out by Arati Pandit, Director, Beth Poole, Director of Development, and the Development Committee made up of Board Vice President Shel Swanson and parent Deborah Apotrias.
