The Peddie Fund


The Peddie Fund is the school's highest philanthropic priority. Since 1944, The Peddie Fund has served as a vital resource by providing day-to-day support to all areas of the Peddie experience including faculty and staff support, financial access, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, academics, athletics, arts and community life. It allows Peddie to be nimble and responsive to our ever-changing world and the needs of our students while still providing the best possible opportunities - in and out of the classroom.

Did you know tuition does not cover the full cost of education for our students? When considering all that contributes to a Peddie student education, the yearly cost exceeds the average full tuition amount by nearly $14,000 per student.

The Peddie Fund is our highest priority because it is put to immediate use to support the Peddie experience and helps to fund the difference between tuition revenue and the actual cost to educate each student; this is especially important while inflation is high and returns on the endowment are less certain.

Continued support to The Peddie Fund means we can continue to provide a world class education and exceptional extracurricular activities. Is there an area across campus that you want to support? You can pick your Peddie Fund preference.

Peddie’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Peddie’s tax I.D. number is 21-0634492.

Choose your favorite way to move Peddie forward

Do you like knowing your gift will have an immediate impact?

A current-use gift to The Peddie Fund before June 30, when our fiscal year ends, would help Peddie provide support for your preferred priority today, where it’s needed most.

Do you prefer to support Peddie as you do your favorite monthly subscriptions?

A monthly recurring gift to The Peddie Fund will allow Peddie to plan ahead, with your favorite priority in mind — and you won’t forget to give each year!

Do you like the idea of accelerating Peddie's momentum toward greater excellence as a top-tier school?

A multi-year, current-use Peddie Fund pledge is an investment that Peddie can count on as times and needs change.

Do you often take the long view?

If investing in tomorrow’s students and faculty feels right to you, splitting your philanthropic support between The Peddie Fund and an existing endowed fund might be rewarding for you.
