Every Gift Matters

Your financial contributions to the School's annual giving campaign for endowment, Parents Association Gala for student financial assistance or the Day of Giving for faculty professional development make Parker the great School it is with:
  • talented teachers
  • small classes
  • technology and instructional tools
  • financial assistance for students who qualify
  • enriching arts, academic and athletics programs. 
Each student's education is financed by both tuition and annual giving support. Each year, about 10% of the operating budget comes from philanthropy, endowment income and summer programs. It is your support that makes the Parker experience distinctive for every child.

We ask our families to identify Parker as their top philanthropic priority and recognize that their contributions make a significant impact. Annual gifts range from $10 to over $50,000, and are the greatest distinguishing factor that enriches the overall students' experience. We encourage families to make a gift they are proud of and everyone is asked to participate. 

Annual giving ensures that the School can maintain its 105-year reputation of providing an exceptional educational experience. Parker's annual giving season is every year from July 1 to June 30. To learn more about giving to Parker, please visit our giving webpages by clicking on the side buttons. Make a gift today or learn about ways to give.

We appreciate your loyalty to Parker and thank you in advance for your generosity.
With kind regards,
