Thanks to the loyal support of our school community, Cold Spring continues to inspire collaboration, pique curiosity, and encourage empathy among its students. Our families are unselfish with gifts of time, talent, and financial contributions. There is a wide range of resources that our community has to share and we like to emphasize that all support is deeply appreciated! This sense of common purpose fuels our community spirit and we are truly grateful for your generosity.
The Cold Spring Fund
The Cold Spring Fund is an annual appeal for donations that is typical in independent schools and non-profit organizations. Dollars raised are unique in that they directly impact the school’s operating budget for the year in which they are given. We rely on unrestricted annual giving to build a sustainable and reliable source of revenue that helps bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a student.
Every gift, regardless of size, is meaningful. Your gift to the Fund helps maintain the qualities that define a Cold Spring School education — teachers, programs, field trips, guest speakers, faculty development, and of course, financial aid.
We are an inclusive school valuing participation in learning, family and community. There are many ways to support our mission and sustain Cold Spring's founding vision.

Meet the Director of Development
Georgia Lieber joined Cold Spring School as Development Director in 2021. She is also a current parent and long-time member of the New Haven community.
The Jog-a-Thon is a Cold Spring School tradition where children jog around Criscuolo Park to raise money for our school and students. This beloved event empowers children to take an active role in supporting their school community, literally! Each student is tasked with finding sponsors who will pledge a certain amount of money for each lap jogged. The JOG-A-THON is truly a community event that promotes the integration of mind, body and soul - the focus of fitness classes this year.
For 2021, we will be hosting CSS’s JOG-A-THON on Friday, October 29. Already, students are training for the big day! Only students will be participating in the in-person event at Criscuolo Park; however and we will be hosting Cold Spring’s first Virtual 5K and Fun Run/Walk for families, friends and community members.

We are currently seeking business sponsors to support this event and ultimately our programs, faculty, and financial aid. Sponsorship helps to ensure that Cold Spring remains a diverse and inclusive community. All dollars raised will contribute to our efforts and is deeply appreciated!

Please contact Georgia Lieber, Director of Development and Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for more information on sponsorship opportunities!
Thank you to our current sponsors:
One of the big differences that I’ve noticed between Cold Spring grads versus children from other schools, who have come from great educational backgrounds as well, is this desire to learn in a way that is endless in its possibilities. I can look at the way they get excited about a project and just move with it, differently than being taught to do an assignment and finish it and be done with it.
