Ways to Give

Securing Pingry now and for the future...

Pingry offers a variety of individually tailored gift options that provide donors with maximum convenience and flexibility. Contributors may find that the resulting tax advantages enable them to make a significantly larger gift to Pingry than they had thought possible. These gifts will support essential programs at the school and help ensure that Pingry continues its tradition of excellence.

There are almost as many variations on ways to make a donation as there are needs to be met.

Pingry’s Development Office staff welcomes the opportunity to meet with you and your advisors to discuss how you can include The Pingry School in your charitable plans. All discussions will be held in the strictest of confidence.
