As an independent school, Cold Spring relies on contributions from families, alumni and friends to ensure financial stability, carry out its mission and achieve its goals. Philanthropy is an integral component of our school culture and a community effort that we encourage every family to support.

The Cold Spring Fund is an annual appeal for donations that is typical in independent schools and non-profit organizations. Dollars raised through the Cold Spring Fund are unique in that they directly impact the school’s operating budget for the year in which they are given. Your gift to the Fund helps sustain the qualities that define a Cold Spring School education — teachers, programs, music, art, financial aid, faculty development and retention.

We are an inclusive school that values participation and respects the variations in giving ability of our community. Every gift, regardless of size, is meaningful. Your participation reflects the strength of our school and the solidarity of our community.

All donations are fully tax-deductible and deeply appreciated.
