2021-2022 Support Annual Giving

We’re Counting On You.

Poly’s Annual Giving campaign is at the heart of everything we do. Thanks to Annual Giving, we’re able to hire outstanding teachers and staff and offer innovative academic programs, robust arts, extracurriculars, and sports.

As you know, tuition alone doesn’t cover the scope of your child’s Poly experience. We rely on gifts of all sizes 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.

Your gift to the Annual Giving fund is more than a show of support. It represents your dedication to the student experience and making every day at Poly Prep extraordinary.

WHY ANNUAL GIVING

Understanding Poly’s finances is the first step to understanding its need for support. Poly could not operate without the generosity of parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, and friends.

Annual Giving

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating a Poly student. Annual Giving is essential because it provides unrestricted income for use in the current school year. Participation in giving at any level is the most important way the community can express their commitment to Poly and its students and teachers.

Endowment Giving
Endowed gifts serve as Poly’s "savings account" and are one of the most significant ways to secure the school's financial future. A strong endowment safeguards the administration’s ability to continue to perform day-to-day operations.
