The GSB fundraising year consists of the Oktoberfest (PA lead), the Annual Fund (ongoing), the Spring Fling (PA lead) & the Annual Summer Gala (organized by GSB).

GSB's Annual Summer Gala

Thanks to the continued generosity of our community, our 2023 gala was a smashing success! During the event, we managed to raise over $162,000 from 51% of our families to help support acquisition, construction, and operation of our brand new building. Those in attendance had a wonderful time at a 760 Sterling Place transformed for the occasion, enjoying the delicious food from Chef Edi and the German House, the incredible tunes from both DJs Fatboy Tim and Yah Supreme and The Engagements, and of course each other’s company!

Annual Fund

At GSB, the cost of tuition does not cover the full cost of attendance per student. The GSB Annual Fund attempts to bridge that gap through the generous contributions of parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends. The Annual Fund will increasingly become a very important source of the additional revenue needed so that GSB can meet its annual budget and continue to grow and expand its educational offerings, and a high rate of participation is important and necessary if GSB is to continue providing a first-rate education at such an affordable tuition. The Annual Fund provides across-the-board assistance for GSB’s needs, such as:

  • Staff development and continuing education
  • Classroom supplies and other educational materials
  • Transportation and school trips
  • Money for new programs

GSB is grateful for every donation as it hopes to establish a legacy of philanthropy rivaling the education it provides. You can donate to the Annual Fund via paypal.


The German School Brooklyn is a registered not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all donations to the Annual Fund are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
