Alumni Giving

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

Every gift makes a difference! Each dollar raised from The York Fund directly supports academics, arts, athletics, financial aid, facility improvements, faculty development, and one-of-a-kind learning opportunities. 

Your support has a direct impact on our students, faculty, and York community. Thank you for your generosity!

If you haven’t joined 100% of our faculty and staff in making your annual gift, it’s never too late to make your first donation.

*York's fiscal year runs July 1 to June 30.



You liked high school.

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.

You believe scholarships are important.

Most years, about 45% 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.

You were inspired by your teachers at York.

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.

You want others to give to York.

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.

You believe the world needs more York students.

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.

You believe in "paying it forward."

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. 

You want to help us reach our goal.

Alumni giving is vital to the School's ongoing success. Currently, 15% 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.

You look for a strong return on your investment.

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.

You want to make a difference.

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.
