Parent Participation Month

Parent Participation Month: October 1-31, 2019

We are thrilled to announce that 68% of parents contributed nearly $275,000 to the Annual Fund as part of October's Parent Participation Month, surpassing our goal of 65% for the month and unlocking the $40,000 Parents' Association Leadership challenge. Thank you to the 200 parents who contributed to the Annual Fund to date, making these results possible.

Why does your participation matter?

Parents Walking

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.
