Along with all of the new faculty and staff who joined Pingry this fall, more than a dozen members of the community have moved into new positions or taken on additional roles.

Trustees Inspired by the Resiliency of the Pingry Community, Commit to a $500,000 Challenge Grant During Ring the Bell: Pingry's Annual Celebration of Giving!

Innovation, excellence, resilience, and a strong sense of community—these are just a few of the intangible qualities that make Pingry such a special place. This year the success of Pingry Anywhere is due in large part to the strength of community support for Pingry and participation in the 2021 Pingry Fund. The Pingry Fund is critical to maintaining Pingry's margin of excellence this year as we face unprecedented challenges together.

On Friday, September 25 and Saturday, September 26 the Pingry community will join together for Ring the Bell: Pingry's Annual Celebration of Giving in honor of Dr. John Pingry's birthday! With its name borrowed from the lyrics of our school song, Ring the Bell is all about participation. During Ring the Bell, students, alumni, parents, and faculty and staff will have the opportunity to come together, celebrate Pingry, and demonstrate their support of Pingry's mission with a gift to The Pingry Fund.

Members of Pingry's Board of Trustees have offered a historic challenge grant of $500,000. Every time a new* donor makes a gift of ANY size, Pingry will receive an additional $1,000! Click here to learn more and Ring the Bell by making a gift to the 2021 Pingry Fund before Ring the Bell comes to a close at midnight on Saturday, September 26!

To count in Ring the Bell, gifts and pledges must be made between 12:00 a.m. EDT, Friday, September 25 and 11:59 p.m. EDT, Saturday, September 26, and must be from individuals who have not made a Pingry Fund commitment this fiscal year (July 1–June 30). Gifts and pledges can be made online or over the phone at 908-647-7058.
