How to Support Us

There are many ways  for current families, alumni, and family and friends of students to support the Co-op School throughout the year. See below for all the ways you can help.

Donate to Our Capital Campaign

As part of the The Co-op School’s New Roots Capital Campaign, we’ve launched a crowdsourcing initiative called Roots to Trees to Honeybees, designed to raise funds that will outfit our new building (opening in 2019) with important supplies and materials from desks and cubbies to a science lab, musical instruments, a library, and so much more. Your gift will further the goal of providing joyful, self-directed learning for students from preschool through middle school in the vibrant neighborhood of Bedford Stuyvesant.

Donate here.

Attend Our Annual Scholarship Gala

Each spring, 400 parents and supporters come together for an unparalleled evening of fun and fundraising for our scholarship fund. Our gala is as dynamic as our community and provides attendees and partners the ability to celebrate while supporting a worthwhile cause. Guests participate in raffles and auctions, bidding on dining, travel, classes, personal pampering, and more. A monumental 100% of Gala proceeds go directly to scholarships for more than 20% of our families.  The Co-op School’s mission is to nurture self-directed learning, make it joyful, and encourage self-reflection and engagement in creating an equitable world. The gala’s proceeds further this mission by making our school accessible to more families.
