Susan Gray School is a valued and unique part of Vanderbilt’s Research Office. In addition to the funding provided by the University, the school relies on the generosity of foundations and individuals to carry out its commitment to high-quality service, professional training, cutting-edge research, and the demonstration of the best in early childhood education and special education practices.

Donors to Susan Gray School are essential partners in sustaining and strengthening the school’s on-site and outreach programs. For more than six decades, Susan Gray School has nurtured the development of children in the Nashville community, as well as shone a light for the nation on how to best prepare our children to reach their full potential. By making a gift to the school, you help this light shine brighter, and you directly impact the early childhood educational experiences of our children.
