Generous giving fully supports what we value most -- a robust academic program, an experienced and inspired faculty, a diverse and stimulating co-curricular offering, and an inclusive and vibrant community.
It takes a concentrated and collective effort to create the educational experience we are striving for. All of our contributions help build the community of learners we strive to be.
Here's how you can partner with us to achieve our shared goal:
Annual Fund: Giving to the Annual Fund helps Blue School meet yearly operating expenses not fully covered by tuition. Supporting the Annual Fund is a priority for our community. There are many ways to give:
Write a check (made out to Blue School) and give it to any member of the Advancement team on the 5th Floor of 241 Water Street. You can also mail your check to:
Blue School Advancement
241 Water Street
NY, NY 10038
Gifting your appreciated stock shares. The tax planning benefits of donating appreciated shares of stock or a fund include 1) deducting the amount of the charitable donation AND 2) avoiding the unrealized gains on the appreciated shares. We’re happy to guide you through the process if you have any questions on how to donate to the school. Please contact David Levin (DavidL@blueschool.org).
Fundraising Events: Spread Love, our annual Spring Benefit, brings our community together to celebrate and support Blue School collectively. We ask that everyone engage in the benefit in a way that suits their family.
Planned Giving: Planned gifts benefit both Blue School and your family. They provide current and deferred contributions to the school and significant benefits to you as a donor.
Matching Gifts: Taking advantage of your employer's matching gift program maximizes the impact of your gift. If you are unsure whether your company participates in a matching program, you can click here to see if your company matches donations or you can contact the advancement office.
Auctions: Donating and soliciting items for auctions are a great way to help Blue School at no cost. Past auctions have featured tickets to sporting events, theater events and fashion events, use of vacation homes, unique dining experiences, gift certificates to local shops and classes, and even behind the scenes tours of broadway plays and film sets.
