A member of the Magistri, he taught science and coached wrestling at Pingry from 1957-1994.
During Opening Convocation, Head of School Matt Levinson closed his remarks with a powerful reminder about the strength of our community: "We are all here to help you have a great year at Pingry... don't go it alone."
This strong sense of community is just one of the many intangibles that make Pingry such a special place, and it is because of you that our students never need to go it alone. Your participation in The Pingry Fund allows us to provide our students with a welcoming environment that emphasizes finding one's place in the community and achieving a true sense of belonging.
TODAY, on Ring the Bell we have the opportunity to come together, celebrate Pingry, and demonstrate our support of Pingry's mission with a Pingry Fund gift. Every time a new donor makes a gift of ANY size, Pingry will receive a $1,000! There is a total challenge grant of $400,000 in unrestricted funds, which means YOU can be among the 400 donors who unlock the total challenge grant which will be used during this school year.
To count in Ring the Bell, gifts and pledges must be made between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. EDT, Thursday, September 26, and must be from individuals who have not yet made a Pingry Fund commitment this fiscal year (7/1/19-6/30/20). Gifts and pledges can be made online or over the phone at 908-647-7058.
As students and faculty will be wearing Pingry spirit wear and sharing why they are thankful to be part of the Pingry community on social media, we wanted to share some Pingry swag with Ring the Bell participants:
- Early Riser - The first gift of the day
- On Our Way - The 75th Gift
- Halfway There - The 200th Gift
- Goal - The 400th Gift
- Night Owl - The very last gift of the day
- The first parent donor from each grade
- The first alumnus/a donor from each class
- Giving Day Advocates - Sign up to be a Ring the Bell advocate at pingry.org/ringthebell. When you share your unique link with fellow alumni, parents, and friends and they make a gift, you will earn Pingry swag.
