#GivingTuesday was a historic day of collective generosity for our community. Together we raised over $1 million for our School, (including $500,000 in matching gifts) ensuring that every student has access to the full ECFS experience. 


On #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, join us in our community-wide effort to support our School’s financial aid program through the Orange Fund.

 group of anonymous donors have put forth an extraordinary, one-time matching gift challenge of $500,000. Every dollar raised will be matched — dollar for dollar. The power of your gift will be DOUBLED and will help us secure a special donation and have a powerful impact for our School. Help us raise $500,000 to unlock this historic match and raise a total of $1 million for our School. Together, we can make a difference!

On GivingTuesday, all gifts will be applied to financial aid unless specified otherwise. Providing access to academic excellence and an ethical foundation for our students will always be our top priority. We put your gifts to immediate use by supporting myriad needs including: financial aid, professional development for faculty, educational technology, athletics, curriculum innovation, visual and performing arts, co-curricular activities, and health and wellness for students and faculty/staff.

ECFS’s world-class progressive education is made possible by the commitment and participation of our community. We ask all members — parents/guardians, alumni, faculty/staff, grandparents, and friends — to help advance the mission of our School. Your participation in the Orange Fund demonstrates your commitment to ECFS and your investment in the future of our students. Gifts of all sizes and types support the important work we do today, while strengthening our legacy for tomorrow.
