Parent Giving

The Peddie Parent Fund directly benefits the entire campus community.

Gifts made to the Peddie Parent Fund provide immediate support for our talented faculty, rigorous academic programs, athletics and the arts, extracurricular activities and the Peddie Parents Association budget. Your participation in the PPF clearly demonstrates your belief in the school's mission and values.

We hope that each family will participate according to their means. Gifts of any size support the current school year and make a difference.

Peddie, you have done such a great job for over 150 years shaping the lives of young men and women and preparing them for college and beyond. I will forever be grateful for your help in transforming my son from a young man into a well-educated young adult. John Coiro '87, P'17

I already pay tuition - why should I participate in the PPF?

Peddie strives to make tuition affordable while sustaining small classes and student-to-faculty ratio. Because tuition and fees do not cover the cost of what it takes to provide a Peddie education each year, the school relies on gifts of all sizes to help make up the difference. Your participation in the Peddie Parent Fund clearly demonstrates that Peddie is an excellent school with strong support from key stakeholders. It shows your satisfaction and belief in the school’s mission to those outside the school, such as prospective families, foundations and rating agencies.

How much am I expected to give?

Peddie’s success has been the direct result gifts both large and small. We continue to rely on the participation of every Peddie parent to provide the best possible experience for our students. Gifts of any size support the current school year and make a difference. We hope each family will participate according to their means. During the 2016-2017 school year, 341 current families raised $876,000 for the Peddie Parent Fund, 43 percent of the total Peddie Fund.

How else can I contribute to Peddie?

Parents of Peddie students play an important role in advancing the mission of the school. As donors, advocates and ambassadors for the school, Parent Volunteers for the Peddie Fund assist the Office of Alumni and Development by reaching out to other parents through phone calls, letters, emails and social media to keep them informed about the happenings at Peddie, while encouraging them to increase their involvement with the Peddie Fund.
