For the fifth straight year, the generosity of the Prep community allowed us to exceed our #MaroonTuesday fundraising goal, and set a new record for gifts to the Annual Fund.
This year, we set out to collect $40,000 as part of this annual celebration of the connections Prep forms with – and among – alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends. But when the final totals were counted, gifts from 112 donors had left us with a one-day total of $56,048!
Tuesday’s outpouring of support is a tremendous help to Prep’s Annual Fund, which accounts for roughly 11% of the school’s overall operating budget. In a very real and immediate way, Annual Fund gifts (on #MaroonTuesday and every day!) are what allow Prpe’s current programs to continue and new initiatives to begin. This vital support provide the necessary resources to:
- Provide for scholarships that will ensure that Prep has a qualified and diverse student body.
- Recruit and retain the best teachers.
- Acquire state-of-the-art technological advancements.
- Field 19 varsity sports.
Although #MaroonTuesday 2018 is now in the books, you can still do your part for Prep’s Annual Fund. If you’re ready to give with pride for the greater glory, simply click here to donate!
