Pingree School opened in 1960 with a magnificent gift: the house and grounds of Flying Horse Farm. A donation to the school today renews that same generous spirit, bringing to life every aspect of the Pingree experience.~ We invite you to join the many parents, alumni, and friends who contribute to the growth and vitality of the place so many people call “home.”
Pingree School is supported by the generosity of parents, alumni, and friends through a variety of ways: unrestricted annual gifts to The Pingree Fund to support today's needs; capital gifts to build endowments for financial aid, faculty support, and facility expansion and improvement; and planned gifts to support future generations.
Every year, Pingree hosts a Leadership Donor Dinner to thank the genrosity of over 100 families who have made a contribution of $1,000 or more to the school.
We recognize that philanthropy, no matter the dollar amount, is a highly personal matter to which a great deal of thought is – and should be – devoted. It is also an extraordinarily meaningful way to become involved in the life and growth of an organization in which you believe. The funding vehicles that support Pingree through its current short-term and long-term goals anticipate the cyclical needs of the school to ensure that every gift makes an impact.
Thank you for your interest in supporting Pingree School and its mission.
