Parent donations to the Pingree Fund are critical to Pingree School's success. Tuition alone does not fully fund our faculty salaries, campus maintenance, extra-curricular activities and all that makes the Pingree experience so unique for our children. The Pingree Fund closes that funding gap each year.
Gifts of every size demonstrate parent support for the mission and direction of the school. Pingree hopes that families will make the School their top philanthropic priority. Last year, parent gifts ranged from $25 to $50,000. In 2011-12, 80% of Pingree parents made a tax-deductable contribution. We would like to reach 100% participation this year. Every gift truly matters!
We ask parents to make a gift to Pingree annually between July 1 and June 30. More than 40 parent volunteers write letters, send emails, and make hundreds of calls to parents encouraging them to support the Pingree Fund. Once parents have made a gift to the Pingree Fund, the school will not request additional support until the following year.
In 2012-2013, Pingree needs to raise $825,000. We hope that our parents will continue to be generous donors to the Pingree Fund and help us surpass this goal. In advance, thank you for all that you do for Pingree! Click here to make your gift today!
