Message from the Annual Fund Chair

Dear Charger Family,

The 2022-23 school year is my family’s fourth at Providence Day.  PD has become a second home to my children Alex (9th grade) and Emily (5th grade) as it has for so many Charger students, and we are grateful to be part of this exceptional community of families, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends.  So, I am honored to serve as Chair for the 2022-23 Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund is Providence Day’s largest yearly fundraiser.  Each year, our entire community comes together to partner with PD in its mission through our philanthropic gifts.  The funds raised directly and immediately support teaching and learning at PD in alignment with the strategic framework born out of a community-wide effort and outlined by the Board of Trustees and school administration. 

As donors, we have the opportunity to support the yearly needs of the school via the Annual Fund while also honoring our own philanthropic passions.  Each donor can choose to designate their gift to one of the Family of Funds that they find most meaningful.  The Annual Fund Family of Funds are:

  • PD’s Greatest Need (unrestricted to be used where it is needed most)
  • Faculty Support & Professional Development
  • Student Financial Assistance
  • Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging
  • Health & Wellness
  • Student Innovation
  • The Arts
  • Athletics

You will receive more information about the Annual Fund Family of Funds this fall, and volunteers will be reaching out to ask for your support of this important effort on behalf of our students and our school.  I hope you will join me in making a gift that is meaningful to your family.  Thank you in advance for your support!

Go Chargers!
