Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School’s Development Office plays a vital role in the life of the School.
We work closely with the Board of Trustees, the Headmaster, the Parents Association, faculty/staff, and alumni.
Our primary areas of responsibility include:
Fundraising through the Third Century Fund, which is used to improve and expand the physical campus and never to close a budget gap. Currently, we are raising funds to support the two-floor addition and the renovations that allowed us to create our new Middle School for Grades 5-7. We also expanded the Prep School cafeteria to two floors and increated classroom and lab space for grades 8-12.
Special Events, including the Benefit, Columbia on Ice, the Holiday Gift & Book Fair, and the Street Fair.
Communications, including the school database, CGPS website, the Friday Weekly e-newsletter, the Directory, the Calendar, publications, and the Annual Giving Report.
Alumni Relations, which facilitates connections with our alumni community through events, fundraising, reunions, and outreach.
The Development Office is located on the fourth floor of 36 West 94th Street.
The building also houses the Admissions and Business Offices.
Our mailing address is 5 West 93rd Street, New York, NY 10025.
