The entity is registered to take donations in both states of California and New York where the majority of Old Boys reside.
The US Friends of Auckland Grammar School also provides a means for connecting Grammar Old Boys across the USA helping keep them up to date with current School developments.

The directors of the US Friends of Auckland Grammar School also assist in raising funds for the Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust. The Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust's aims are to promote the advancement of education by charitable means through the Academic Endowment Fund (AEF), designed to help keep our best teachers in the classroom by allowing the Board of Trustees to recruit, retain and reward top teachers.

With the sesquicentenary celebrations fast approaching in 2019, we would like to have as many Auckland Grammar Old Boys there as possible. We have recently created a Facebook group for our US-based alumni, where we will be posting stories and Old Boys are able to connect with each other. Click here to join.
Below are a snapshot of photos from the recent gathering in New York, held at the Permanent Mission to the United Nations. Old Boys from all walks of life attended and listened to the Headmaster speak about plans for the School's 150th celebrations in 2019. The evening was proudly sponsored by Invivo Wines, with special thanks to Old Boy and director and co-founder, Tim Lightbourne '89.
