Through the dedication of current families, teachers, trustees, alumni, alumni-families and friends, we raise the dollars needed to run the day-to-day life of the school over and above tuition. All students benefit from annual fund raising. We ask that every family do its part by joining our annual fund-raising efforts: the Parker Fund and the Benefit Auction. Together we can assure a thriving and responsive educational experience, and support the mission of the school.
The Parker Fund – in 2016-2017 our level of participation was:
- 100% Trustees
- 100% Faculty, Staff and Administration
- 92% Parents
Each and every gift of any amount is meaningful to Robert C. Parker School. Gifts are gratefully accepted, and donor generosity is most appreciated.
“Thank you to the Parker family: teachers, support staff, ‘buddies’, classmates and their families as well as Mother Nature’s bounty of outdoor gifts that nurture our grand daughters’ bodies, minds, hearts and souls in their educational endeavors.”
~Grandparents, Class of ’17 and ’20
Parker Palooza – 25th Anniversary Celebration
Our benefit Auction in 2016 was a Celebration of our 25th Anniversary and was held at noon on June 4 at Parker. This event, for all of our families and alumni was a wonderful day filled with singing, dancing and a premier of our new video!
Thank you to all those who joined the Honorary Committee and who attended this great event! We raised over $44,000 – a record for our auction events!
The school would like to encourage you to participate in one of the leadership giving levels listed below. Your gift will help to provide for new curricula, faculty development, financial assistance, technology, and other areas of need that are not covered by tuition.
Leadership giving is critical to helping the school reach its financial goals and furthering the growth of the Annual Fund. Each year, Parker honors gifts of $1,000 or more by designating the donors as members of leadership giving categories.
