A century-old tradition of giving.

Park has enjoyed strong philanthropic support from thousands of individuals, families, and businesses since the time of Park's founding headmistress, Miss Mary Hammett Lewis. These gifts, whether to the Annual Fund or to endowment or capital needs, have made a powerful impact on our school community, through supporting the work of our outstanding faculty, attracting talented students from all backgrounds, and stewarding our 34-acre campus and its natural beauty.

Leadership gifts of $1,000 and up have a significant impact on Park. These gifts allow us to expand professional development opportunities for faculty; enhance the experience of all students; ensure that talented students are able to attend Park through increased tuition assistance; and maintain our resource-rich 34-acre campus.

We invite you to make a commitment at one of the following levels:

$20,000 and above




$500 (graduates of the last 15 years)
