Dear Gunnery Parents,
Over the next few months, an enthusiastic group of parent volunteers will be reaching out to all Gunnery parents to talk with you about The Parents Fund and its importance in our students’ lives. As the Parents Fund Committee Chair, I ask that you take the time to speak with these volunteers when they reach out to you.
To give you a little context, The Parents Fund is The Gunnery’s annual giving program, which is fueled by donations from the current parent community. It supports all aspects of The Gunnery experience and contributing to it -- as part of The Gunnery Fund -- is an essential and well-regarded tradition. Moreover, The Gunnery has a strong history of parent giving, with a record-breaking 80 percent of parents making a gift to The Parents Fund last year!
This year, our goal is to raise $360,000 and reach 100 percent giving participation. Gifts of all sizes have an immediate impact on every Gunnery student and teacher, and support many aspects of campus life, including extracurricular activities, campus renewal, faculty development, and technology.
So please join us in supporting the 2017-18 Parents Fund by making a gift today. Your participation -- at any level -- will make a difference, and will help our students learn and thrive in the best environment possible.
