Because of Donors Like You
Every dollar given to The Stony Brook School is carefully invested into the life of the School, ensuring that our students are equipped for lives of leadership and service.
Great things have happened at SBS because of the strong support of SBS alumni, parents, and friends since the School's earliest years. Gifts both large and small, from donors like you, are evidence of God's faithful provision and the ongoing relevance of the School's mission. In the past 15 years (and counting), we have undertaken major renovations to our physical plant, including significant upgrades to our student residence halls and our arts and athletics facilities. In addition, we have been able to award financial aid to many students whose parents could not otherwise afford an SBS education.
Right now is an especially exciting time in our School's history, as we recently celebrated the dedication of Kanas Commons, our long-awaited two-level dining room and student center. Named in appreciation of a generous donation from Board member Elaine Kanas and her husband, John (parents of John ’09), this light-filled, 19,400-square-foot building has already become a hub of student life, a place for day and boarding student to gather, and a center for leadership development. As the 2013 calendar year draws to a close, our prayer and work are focused on raising the remaining funds for this $7.8 million project.
We are pleased that you are considering giving to The Stony Brook School. Such gifts take many forms. Thank you for considering a one-time or recurring gift to one of our four major funds:
- Annual Giving: Fund for Character Education
- Capital Campaign: Kanas Commons
- Curtis Circle Planned Giving Society
Thank you for also considering how you might be able to volunteer your time in prayer or service to the School. We invite you to explore the pages in this section to learn more about how valuable your gifts of time and money are to SBS.
Thank you for your generosity. I encourage you to contact the Alumni and Development Office with any further questions.
