MCS Annual Fund

Contact Us

As an independent school, we finance our operations with no help from federal, state, or local government funding. Although 70% of our income comes from student tuition, that revenue alone cannot sustain our program. We rely heavily on the generous contributions of parents, alumni, friends, corporations, and private foundations to meet immediate and long term expenses.

We welcome contributions in a variety of forms. If you have questions about how to make a gift, or want more information, please contact Director of Development Akemi Kochiyama at (212) 348-0952 ext. 283 or

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all outright gifts of cash or stock made to MCS are 100% tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

Ways to Give

We appreciate any contributions of cash, credit card, check, or money order. Contributions can be mailed to Manhattan Country School, attn. Development Office, 7 East 96th St., New York, NY 10128.

You can make a gift online with a major credit card. Click here to support the Annual Fund online.

Matching Gifts
Many companies match the philanthropic contributions of their employees on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis. Matching Gift Forms are usually available from your company’s personnel office. Simply complete your portion of the form and mail it along with your gift.

Stocks/Appreciated Securities
Making a stock gift helps the donor avoid applicable capital-gains taxes.

A capital or endowment gift consists of single, multi-year, or planned (estate) gifts given in addition to Annual Giving and designated to support specific programs and projects identified by the Board of Trustees. These might include significant facility improvements or increasing the endowment.

Every gift counts and is deeply valued.
