The Power of Gratitude

When you make a gift to La Scuola, you are contributing to a vision for bilingual, global education in New York City that is ambitious and truly unique. Our program is comprehensive and student-centered, facilitated by an outstanding faculty who are dedicated to the success of each student. To make this program possible, La Scuola requires support from our families, alumni, and friends. 

“La Scuola d’Italia is the best choice a parent can make for their children.
From pre-K to the 12th grade,  La Scuola offers a world-class education that combines Italian and European culture with the American one.

Ways to Give


Annual Fund

Each fall, we launch the Annual Fund, an appeal to the entire La Scuola community for contributions that supplement the School’s yearly operating budget. The Annual Fund supports faculty salaries and financial assistance, as well as core programmatic needs such as teaching supplies, lab equipment, technology, musical instruments and more. The Annual Fund also provides need based support for any qualified student wishing to attend La Scuola. If you wish to designate your gift to the Can Akant Johnny Toksu Educational Fund, you will help to keep alive the memory of one of our most beloved students.

Employer Gift Match

If you or your spouse work for a company that matches gifts, you may be able to increase your support. Through corporate gift matching programs to non-profit educational institutions your support of La Scuola may be augmented. You will receive recognition for the total amount contributed by you and your employer. Please contact your human resources department for more information on how to take advantage of the gift matching opportunity.


Celebrated each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is another way our community supports the school during the time of the year when people around the world give thanks.
