Recently, more than 60 members of the Pingry community, from all three divisions, gathered on Zoom for the school's first-ever HBCU alumni panel. Six Pingry graduates shared their experiences—here's what they had to say.
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:
The Pingry Fund operates from July 1 - June 30. 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.
"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."
