March Madness Alumni Giving Challenge
Thank you to everyone who supported ECFS and congratulations to the 1990s who came out on top!
What is the Orange Fund?
The Orange Fund is the ECFS annual fundraising initiative. ECFS relies on charitable contributions from parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of graduates, faculty/staff and friends to underwrite the comprehensive costs, bridging the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each student. The Orange Fund helps with every aspect of the school’s operating costs including Financial Aid.
I already made an Orange Fund gift -- can I make a second gift today?
Thank you for your early support of the Orange Fund. Yes! To help ECFS earn a challenge gift from an alum, your additional donation will count toward our goal of 200 donors during the March Madness Alumni Giving Challenge.
How much should I give?
Gifts of all sizes are greatly appreciated by the ECFS community. In the past, we have received gifts ranging from $5 to $100,000 but it’s the collective support from the alumni community that makes the biggest impact.
Do I have to be an alumnus to participate in the Alumni Giving Challenge?
NO! While this is a fun way to engage our alumni community, we are also accepting gifts from parents, grandparents, faculty and staff, and other friends of the School.
I have more questions! Who should I contact?
The Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations is happy to answer any questions you might have. We can be reached by phone at 212-712-8451 or by email at [email protected]
