Our Thoughts on Philanthropy
By design, Cold Spring School is a socio-economically diverse
community and as such we recognize that the capacity to give, both time
and material wealth, varies from family to family. The work of the
Development office facilitates fundraising through a lens that values
and respects the range of resources our community, in the broadest
sense, has to share.
We also believe childhood is the perfect time to nurture
deep-rooted qualities of empathy, compassion and generosity. The school
community strives to inspire in our students a willingness to share
personal resources, skills and creativity. Through voluntary generosity,
adults in our community become models for the behavior we want our
students to emulate.
Cold Spring School relies on charitable contributions from
families and friends to ensure financial stability, carry out its
mission and achieve its goals.
The tactical and strategic work of development and fundraising
efforts at Cold Spring School is carried out by Jeff Jonathan, Director
of Cold Spring School, Paula Coyne, Director of Development and the
Development Committee, chaired by Cold Spring Trustee Ellen Wormser with
support from Mary Bloom, Karri Brady, Erica Dawson and Mary Zihal.
