Ways to Give

Grymes thrives thanks to the generosity of parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends who make the gift of joyful learning available to so many children. Explore with us how your philanthropic gift can support the excitement, creativity, growth, and wellbeing of generations of Grizzlies.

Grymes is unique thanks to passionate and caring teachers, a vibrant hands-on curriculum, and our diverse family of students with a wide range of talents, interests and abilities. Like most independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of a Grymes education. Our current “tuition gap” is approximately $4,500 per student. The Fund for Grymes fills this funding gap and keeps our school healthy and vibrant.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on the philanthropy of individuals, foundations, and friends of Grymes to help make our program possible. Your gift is tax-deductible, and every gift makes an immediate impact on our bottom line.

You are here because Grymes matters to you, too. Join us to advance our shared mission of joyful learning.
