Peddie Loyalty Gains Momentum

I am learning from my teachers and coaches, making friends and, because of Peddie, 
I will one day make a difference in the world.

The momentum from Peddie Loyalty Day took us up over the $40M mark in this campaign. Here’s the breakdown:

  • A whopping 66 alumni classes were represented and over 400 alumni donors supported the day, ranging from the Class of 1939 to 2018.
  • Top alumni participation came from the classes of 1999, 2007, 2011, 2012 and 2014.
  • Over 20 donors who have never given a gift to Peddie made their first gift.
  • Over 700 donors participated, including alumni, alumni parents, current parents, grandparents, former faculty and staff, current faculty and staff (many making their second gift of the year) and trustees (some making their second gift of the year)!
  • The classes with the highest number of donors were: 1999 (49 donors), 2007 (33 donors), 2014 (33 donors) and 2012 (29 donors).  
  • Young alumni represented about half of all donors on the day. What a powerful force they are in Peddie’s future!

Every gift to Peddie is a tangible expression of love for the school and a substantial building block for the future. We’re humbled and thrilled at such an overwhelming response from the Peddie community. Thank you again to everyone!
