Portsmouth Abbey School has recognized the special nature of parents' contributions by naming the parent portion of the Annual Fund as the Parent Division. The School's Annual Fund is used to provide unrestricted support for current operations. Currently, the total Annual Fund which includes gifts from Alumni, Parents, Parents of Alumni, Faculty, Staff, Grandparents and Friends, contributes approximately 8% of the School's operating budget. The stronger the Annual Fund, the better equipped the School is to provide a superior educational environment for our students. Annual Fund gifts have a direct impact on the everyday lives of students and are used in a variety of ways: providing financial aid, increased student activities, state of the art technology, support for athletic programs and the arts, and so much more.
Our Parent Division of the Annual Fund goals are to raise $400,000 and reach 75% participation from current parents.
If you would like to learn more about giving opportunities for parents, please contact Alexandra Karppinen, Director of the Annual Fund, at 401 643-1204.
