  • Q. What does my Annual Fund gift to Porter’s really do?

    A.
    Your gift to the school really makes all the difference. No matter what size contribution you are able to make, your participation sends the message that you believe in the mission of Miss Porter’s School. The percentage of Ancients who contribute to the Annual Fund every year is a tangible measure that others such as foundations and prospective families look at closely when deciding whether to make a grant or send their daughters to the school. The higher the participation (which was just 40% in 2013-14), the stronger the message that those closest to the school value the experience they had, and want available to other girls.

    The Annual Fund is not an extraneous luxury. Every year, the school anticipates that approximately 13% of the operating budget will be covered by the Annual Fund. This year, it is essential to raise $2.1 million through the Annual Fund. Quite simply, without it, the school can only operate at 89%. Each gift makes a difference in reaching that goal.
