STONY BROOK NEXT
In the past four years, generous donors have given nearly $11 million to strengthen and enhance the day to day experience for students of The Stony Brook School. By God’s grace, this has been a time of profound renewal and transformation. We now seek to raise $7 million in pledges and gifts over the next two years to continue to advance the mission of the School by supplementing operations, funding improvements, and increasing endowment.
As we move toward 2018, we embark on our next near-term goals in the implementation of our Strategic Plan as we continue our giving theme of Stony Brook Next:
- Complete renovation and redesign of all Gaebelein classrooms;
- Upgrade our sound system and production capabilities in Carson Auditorium to enable better quality in our chapel, theater, and music performances;
- Expand our STEM program by designing a new STEM space that will facilitate innovation on campus;
- Invest in professional development, particularly in the area of enabling teacher travel and research for informed and enhanced teaching;
- Take steps towards achieving our goal of long-term sustainability and increased financial aid for students by increasing our endowment to $18 million;
- Create more scholarship opportunities for qualified students and families.
Stony Brook Next continues the tradition of generous giving, which will have a tangible effect for every student and teacher, transforming our campus and sustaining our future.
“These are exciting times for The Stony Brook School. With clear vision and growing investment in our School, we feel the wind at our backs. The accomplishment of our strategic goals will position Stony Brook well for the next hundred years of growth and impact. Soli Deo Gloria!” -Joshua Crane, Head of School

The earnings, interest, and dividends of The Stony Brook School's Endowment Fund are an important source of revenue, helping to underwrite a percentage of the School's operating and capital budgets each year. Valued at $16 million, our Endowment is composed of unrestricted funds (to be used where most needed) as well as funds restricted for specific purposes and programs. The invested principal of the Endowment grows through current gifts of cash and appreciated securities, through deferred and estate gifts, and through reinvestment of earnings to provide for inflation.
The growth of our Endowment is vital to the School's long-term financial stability.
