George School Fund

The George School Fund is the annual cornerstone of our fundraising effort and supports the general operations of the School. While the endowment provides long-term financial stability, gifts to the George School Fund ensure that the GS experience is distinctive for and accessible to our current students.

I give to George School because my four years at GS were the years that formed my character, that made me who I am. But even more, I give to George School because over all of the years since I graduated, George School has continued to ‘walk the walk’ by providing an excellent academic and character building education to an increasingly diverse group of young people.”  –Richard Brown ’61
