Parent Participation Month: October 15-November 15, 2022

From October 15 to November 15, we will be celebrating the important role parent support of the Annual Fund plays at Portsmouth Abbey School.
Our goal is to reach a minimum of 60% participation by November 15 and 100% participation before the end of our fiscal year on June 30. We hope you will consider making a gift to help us achieve both of these goals. As a special challenge during Parent Participation Month, the Parents' Association leadership will contribute an additional $15,000 to the Annual Fund if parents reach 60% participation or higher by November 15!

Why does your participation matter?

Your contribution goes directly to funding necessities and therefore, makes a direct impact on student lives each and every day. The School's financial strength is dependent upon the participation of all members of its community. A first-class Abbey education is the direct result of gifts from parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and friends who believe in and financially support excellence in education. Income from the Annual Fund, the endowment and auxiliary programs can bridge the gap between tuition income and the operating budget. Your participation generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join you in supporting the Abbey.

Furthermore, foundations and corporations awarding grants to educational institutions often look at the level of parent and community participation in the School's Annual Fund as a key factor in determining which institutions will receive the grants.
