Meet the Office of Institutional Advancement

Thank you for your interest in supporting Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School. Our students benefit from a long tradition of educational excellence that is strengthened each year by donations of both time and treasure from hundreds of generous members of the CGPS community.


Founded in 1764, CGPS boasts a legacy of more than 250 years of philanthropic investment. Each year, CGPS thrives with the support of volunteers who help encourage donations, strengthen reunions, and plan community building events. No matter how you choose to participate, your investment enriches the lives of CGPS students today.


All contributions enhance the experience of today’s students and faculty and will help ensure the strength of the School for years to come.


The Office of Institutional Advancement is located at 687 Columbus Avenue. Our mailing address is 5 West 93rd Street, New York, NY 10025.  Donations can be made online or sent by mail, questions or assistance with stock transfers or matching gifts please email us at
