Meet the Office of Institutional Advancement

Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School’s Office of Institutional Advancement plays a vital role in the life of the school. 

We work closely with the Board of Trustees, the Head of School, 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.  

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, and Publications.  

Alumni Relations, which facilitates connections with our alumni community through events, fundraising, reunions, and outreach.


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
