Support City and Country

As at most independent schools, tuition does not cover our needs each year. Donations from you—our current parents, alumni, grandparents, alumni parents, faculty, staff, and friends—help make up the difference. Thank you for your support, which has kept C&C a leader in progressive education for over 100 years! There are several ways to support C&C:

The Annual Fund runs from July 1–June 30 each year and supports the operating budget. It is our most important fundraising endeavor, which helps pay for every need, from faculty and staff salaries and benefits, to financial aid, to curriculum and program supplies, to minor facility needs. 

The Benefit is our yearly fundraiser, which was held on Thursday, March 16, 2023 this year. Funds raised support C&C’s robust financial aid program. Our annual Benefit is a great time for adults to celebrate the School and the community!

The Endowment helps ensure the long-term financial health of the School. It was established in our Centennial year. To find out more about the endowment, contact Melissa Ritchie, Director of Development at melissar@cityandcountry.org or 212.506.5945.

Gino’s and Steve’s Place is a fund established in celebration of the lives of Stephen Antonakos and Gino Crocetti ’59, beloved members of the City and Country community lost to COVID-19. Donations will support the building of a permanent Shop space at C&C, which was important to Steve, our Carpenter, and Gino, who built many projects in the Shop. It will be a place where our community can remember Steve and Gino, and how much they loved C&C. Click here to learn more about C&C’s Celebration of the Lives of Gino and Steve.
