Giving at Park

The generosity of the Park community enables Park to provide every student with an extraordinary education.

The Park Fund

Giving Tuesday is November 29! Make your gift today to The Park Fund. All new and increased gifts will be matched, dollar for dollar, through the Trustee Challenge.

The Park Fund impacts the life of every student. This annual, community-wide fundraising effort is essential to the Park experience. The Park Fund provides support for our diverse array of curricular and co-curricular programming, resources to attract and retain talented faculty, and tuition assistance for a broad range of families.

Each year, a Park education is made possible by the community’s commitment to The Park Fund. Parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, employees, and friends of Park contribute essential support that strengthens the entire school. Thank you to every donor who makes Park a philanthropic priority.


Endowment Giving

Gifts to the endowment help provide long-term financial security for the school. An endowment is made up of gifts and bequests that are subject to a requirement that the principal be maintained intact in perpetuity, and invested to create a source of income. The income derived from the interest earned can contribute up to 5% towards the school’s operating budget each year.

While dollars raised from annual giving are spent each year, an endowment provides lasting financial security. In 1968, fifty-six years after Park’s founding, the Board of Trustees launched a fundraising campaign to initiate an endowment. They sought and succeeded in securing $600,000, and the Park endowment was born. Over the years, Park’s endowment has grown significantly.

If you would like to learn more about how you can help Park grow its endowment today, contact the Development Office at 410-339-4146 or email development@parkschool.net.
