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 153 years, generous alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends have supported the School’s commitment to academic excellence and an education that emphasizes honor, character, respect, and service.
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 embark on Blueprint for the Future, the largest fundraising effort in the School's history.
The Pingry Fund is one of the core initiatives of the Campaign, contributing annual operating funds that are immediately used during the school year and impact every aspect of student life including: professional growth opportunities for our faculty, new technology in the classrooms, enhancements to our arts, music and athletics 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 by making your gift to the 2014-15 Pingry Fund today. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or a staff member in the Office of Institutional Advancement at (908) 647-7058.
