The Pingry Fund
Message from The Pingry Fund Chair
Dear Members of the Pingry Community,
Philanthropy has been a cornerstone of The Pingry School since its founding in 1861. Over the last 152 years, generous alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends have supported the School’s transformation into a world-class independent school with national recognition and global reach.
The Pingry Fund is our school’s annual giving program that enables us to attract, support, and retain our most valuable assets—our students and faculty members. This year’s Pingry Fund is more important than ever as we continue to maintain a balanced budget for the school, manage our costs, and uphold the quality of the education for which we are best known. The Pingry Fund provides professional growth opportunities for our faculty, new technology in the classrooms, enhancements to our arts, music and athletic programs, and financial aid for our current students. Simply put, Pingry, like most independent schools, could not operate without your support of The Pingry Fund.
I encourage you to participate and become part of Pingry’s incredible legacy of philanthropy. For those who have made a gift to the 2013-14 Pingry Fund, I thank you for your support. The video below illustrates how your gift has a positive and direct impact on our School so I encourage you to take a moment to watch it.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or a staff member in the Office of Alumni & Development at (908) 647-7058.
