Your gifts to the Annual Fund, capital campaign, and special projects provide vital support that enables Geneva School to fulfill its mission of providing an excellent classical education within a Christian perspective. Your gifts are needed and much appreciated.
There are many ways to give:
- Make a gift online
- Mail your checks to the school office:
The Geneva School of Manhattan
123 West 57th Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY 10019
- Donate appreciated stock
Donations of appreciated securities are recorded as a charitable gift at the appreciated amount. In most cases, the donor will receive a greater tax benefit than if the appreciated securities are sold and the cash is donated. Also, by donating appreciated securities you can avoid recording a capital gain in the security (assuming the investment has appreciated and that you have held the asset for more than one year). You should check with a tax professional before initiating any transfer of securities. If you would like to donate securities you can initiate the transfer through your broker and request that the securities be transferred to:
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
Account Name: The Geneva School of Manhattan
DTC Number: 0015
Please contact Sandy Young at 212.754.9988 ext.103 or email@example.com if you are considering this kind of gift so that we can understand how you would like this gift to be utilized and send you a tax receipt in a timely manner.

- Annual Auction
The Annual Auction is the largest fundraising event of the year and the sole development initiative for the School's Scholarship Fund. Our Scholarship Fund was established to provide assistance for such families who might not otherwise be able to afford Geneva School’s unique education. The Annual Auction is the primary fundraiser for the Scholarship Fund, which provides generous support to a diverse student body. The event is also an opportunity to hear from current students, faculty, and alumni about the impact Geneva School is having on our students and the wider community. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer for the planning and production of the benefit, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Volunteer opportunities
Many opportunities exist—both one-time and ongoing — for parents and grandparents to volunteer at Geneva School. By giving of your time and abilities, you will help our School achieve its mission while experiencing first hand what sets Geneva School apart. Volunteering is also a great way to get to know other parents, faculty, and staff while making a lasting impact on the School.
