Dear Portledge Community,
If you had the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a child, would you take it? We think you would, and we all have that opportunity right now.
From its humble beginnings, the Portledge Fund has been making the difference in the lives of thousands of children. The money you give is what keeps all the amazing things happening at Portledge – happening. It allows Portledge to attract the best teachers and the finest students. It’s what keeps us on the cutting edge of technology in the classroom. It’s how we keep our sports teams in the best physical shape, our blossoming artists attending the finest museums, and our burgeoning scientists and mathematicians striving to understand our world. Your gift to the Portledge Fund creates access, independent minds, and life opportunities – it makes the difference in the life of a child.
For parents, we applaud and appreciate the sacrifices you make in sending your children to Portledge. Tuition is expensive to be sure, but tuition only covers 90% of the cost of this first-rate education on our spectacular 63-acre campus.
For alumni, it is about the legacy of Portledge – your legacy. When we grow together, so does the value of our time at Portledge, and our pride in being part of this amazing experience grows too.
Your participation in the Portledge Fund sends a message that you believe in the children, their education, and the legacy of the school where they learn. If you have given to the Portledge Fund in the past – thank you – and please give again. If you have never given, please do so now. And give until it hurts. No gift is too big or too small, and the school simply cannot fulfill its mission without the generosity of people like you.
For our family, the legacy is strong, and we are committed. Our twins are the 10th and 11th members of our family to attend Portledge, spanning two generations and covering every decade the school has been in existence. We see the school as former students, parents, and board members, and understand that curiosity, integrity, and strength of character are at the core of Portledge.
Portledge has made a difference in the lives of 11 of us. Think how many more lives we can make a difference in with you by our side.
Please give a gift of real impact by making a donation today.
