2021-2022 Support Annual Giving

We’re Counting On You.

Poly’s Annual Giving campaign is at the heart of everything we do.

Everything you value about Poly is made possible by Annual Giving, and Annual Giving is only made possible with you. Participation at any level is an expression of your commitment to a truly diverse community, advancing excellence, and helping our students become intelligent, capable, and self-aware citizens, who are fully prepared to pursue their dreams and ambitions.

As you know, tuition alone doesn’t cover the scope of your child’s Poly experience. We rely on every gift no matter the size to help bridge the gap. And we can’t do it without you. Giving back is an enduring tradition at our school. It’s what parents, along with faculty, staff, alumni, and friends, have always done: support Annual Giving to raise the bar to which we hold ourselves. We hope to continue to create remarkable opportunities for Poly students with your support.

Together we can shape the future of Poly.

WHY ANNUAL GIVING

Understanding Poly’s finances is the first step to understanding its need for support. Annual Giving bridges the gap between tuition and operating expenses. Annual Giving keeps the cost to attend Poly more affordable. And unlike tuition, your gift to  Annual Giving is 100% tax deductible.

Annual Giving

“Our aim is to reach 100% participation each year, because Annual Giving touches every member of this community. When everyone contributes—at any level that’s comfortable—we all benefit. Full participation also sends a powerful message. Giving begets more giving. When our community demonstrates its belief in Poly, others will believe in and support Poly too.” 

– Opeyemi Laniyonu, Director of Annual Giving
