2023-24 Graded Annual Fund

The Graded Annual Fund, the school's annual giving program, is the primary vehicle for raising unrestricted funds to supplement the school's operating budget. Like most American colleges and leading independent schools, Graded relies upon philanthropic contributions to fulfill its mission. The Graded Annual Fund supports scholarships, educational enrichment, and initiatives that elevate the Graded experience. PLEASE DONATE TODAY.
