Annual Giving 2019-20
Annual Giving is Poly’s most essential fundraising effort and involves the entire Poly community – parents, alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, and friends. Annual Giving supports the people and programs that make Poly exceptional: talented faculty, financial aid, library and instructional resources, technology, and enriching arts and athletic programs. The funds raised also help us to maintain Poly’s two beautiful campuses as jewels of learning environments in the city.
We hope that you identify Poly Annual Giving as one of your top philanthropic priorities this year, recognizing the significant impact of your contribution. By joining the “culture of philanthropy” at Poly Prep, you help raise much needed funds for use in the current school year. We encourage you to consider a gift at the Leadership Level (Tower Society) of $3,500 or more, if you are able. Participation in giving at any level is the most important way you can express your support for Poly Prep. Every gift counts! Every gift matters!

Join Our Committee
Annual Giving volunteers are ambassadors for Poly, reaching out to peers to encourage participation in the school’s Annual Giving campaign. Volunteers gather together several times during the year to make calls and celebrate the strong support of the Poly community. Volunteering is an extremely rewarding experience, providing meaningful opportunities to connect with fellow parents while furthering a common goal of supporting Poly students.
