Pingry is shaped by those who believe in and support its mission. By supporting the School with a gift to The Pingry Fund, you can help anticipate and meet the ever-evolving needs of our students. 

The giving community is comprised of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, friends, and even current students. Since first opening our doors in 1861, Pingry and the legacy it's established have been built upon generations of generosity.

The Pingry Fund, our annual giving program which operates from July 1 - June 30, plays a critical role in supporting the School’s annual operating budget and is immediately used during the school year.
The School relies on the entire Pingry community to make a gift each and every year, and measures parent and alumni participation through gifts to The Pingry Fund.

Message from Margaret and Jiayi


Community at Pingry comes in many forms and brings with it many special moments that become lifelong memories. It might be a fascinating English class with a beloved teacher. It might be the donut Tuesday tradition in advisory.  It might be an overtime celebration with your teammates at sunset. The foundation of our Pingry community rests upon these small moments of belonging that our students experience every day, and we never know which one of those moments might change their life forever.

As Pingry Fund Chairs, we are excited to meet members of our community and learn about their special moments at Pingry. We hope that you will join us in making a contribution to The Pingry Fund—your support is essential in furthering the School's mission, and making sure all of our students have a transformative experience while at Pingry."Margaret Santana P'22, '24 and Jiayi Chen P'32, '35 Co-chairs, The Pingry Fund

Join the Pingry Fund Parents' Committee

Becoming a Pingry Fund volunteer is a great way to learn more about the School, meet other parents, and it directly benefits your child’s experience. Pingry does not host an annual gala or events with a fundraising component to benefit The Pingry Fund, rather we rely on parent volunteers to encourage participation from our community at various times throughout the school year. If you have questions or to become a Pingry Fund volunteer, please email Cecily Allison at
