Each year we rely on contributions from our community in order to advance our school’s mission and sustain the level of excellence in our classrooms. Whether you choose to donate your time, talent, or through a financial gift, every level of support is appreciated and directly impacts the quality of each child’s educational experience.

Contributions from our donors provide additional resources for faculty and staff professional development, campus improvement, financial aid, and other priorities to maintain a world-class learning environment. Each gift is an investment in the future of the Gardner School.

There are many ways to get involved, and we invite you to explore our volunteer, PTO, and Board of Trustees pages as well as the giving options below.
