Support

Our community began with a gift.

In 1872, Thomas Peddie gave $25,000 to support the New Jersey Classical and Scientific Institute. In return, the school gratefully changed its name to Peddie, and a tradition of generosity was born.

That tradition continues today. Gifts from alumni, parents, faculty and friends have a transformational impact on Peddie and the experience of each student. They help support the important work we do today and ensure our legacy for the future.

There are many ways to support Peddie. Gifts to the Peddie Fund provide us with immediate financial flexibility and support for advancement and new initiatives. Planned Giving and support for our endowment and special projects is an investment in Peddie’s future.

We thank those who support Peddie for their commitment to our school - to its past, its present and all that has yet to come.

Peddie had a tremendous impact on the people that we are today. We give back so that others can experience what we did - an experience that we are most grateful for.Edward C. Dippold III '81 P'12
