Parent Participation Month: October 15-November 15, 2021
We are thrilled to announce that 72% of parents contributed more than $259,000 to the Annual Fund, setting a School participation record for Parent Participation Month and successfully unlocking the $20,000 Parents' Association Leadership challenge! Thank you to the 212 parents who contributed to the Annual Fund to date, making these results possible.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to make a commitment to the Annual Fund, we hope you will consider doing so to continue our wonderful momentum and help us reach our overall goal of 100% participation by June 30. Thank you for your consideration!
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.
