Annual Giving

Since 1854, philanthropy has been critical to the success of Poly's mission. Each year, dedicated Poly parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends help us enhance institutional programming, expand faculty development opportunities, and enrich daily student life on our two beautiful campuses.

We hope that you will make Annual Giving your philanthropic priority this year. Annual Giving donations have an immediate impact by providing essential operating support. Your participation in giving, regardless of the amount, is the most important way you can express your support for the school.

Other Campaigns

Capital Projects
Capital giving directly enhances teaching and learning, preserves Poly's historical architectural heritage while modernizing our facilities, and incorporates environmental sustainability in all our initiatives.
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.
