The Pingry Fund

The Pingry Fund, our annual giving program, plays a critical role in supporting the School’s annual operating budget and is immediately used during the school year. Pingry Fund gifts impact every aspect of a Pingry education, including the retention of and professional growth opportunities for our faculty, installation of new technology, enhancements to the fine and visual arts programs, resources for athletic teams, and financial aid for current students.

YOUR GIFT TO THE PINGRY FUND CAN BE DIRECTED TO ONE OF SIX AREAS:

Greatest Need

Your gift will provide necessary funds to Pingry's area of greatest need, which makes a difference in the lives of all community members.

The Arts

Your gift will provide Pingry with resources to support a fine arts curriculum encompassing visual arts, music, and drama, and to facilitate the development of empathy, creative problem-solving, and collaboration among students.

Athletics

Your gift will provide opportunities to better train student-athletes, bring in guest coaches, supply equipment, and ultimately ensure student-athletes are ready, prepared, and at the top of their game.

Faculty professional growth

Your gift will provide professional growth opportunities and endowed awards to Pingry's faculty, enabling Pingry to attract, retain, and develop talented teachers.

Financial Aid

Your gift will provide financial aid, which allows enrollment for a diverse body of dedicated students with a broad range of talents, backgrounds, and perspectives.

Technology & Innovation

Your gift will provide constant integration of advanced resources in the classroom, increase learning opportunities, and prepare students to tackle complex challenges in a dynamic, ever-changing world.
