Support Pike

When you start with a strong foundation, anything is possible.

That's the power of Pike. It's why teachers who have the pleasure of interacting with our graduates all say the same thing: Pike students "have it together." With your help, we can continue to make sure our students have the tools to make the most of their potential. 

Support Pike

Fundraising is essential to Pike's continued success as an institution dedicated to developing within our community a life-long love of learning, respect for others, the joy of physical activity, and a creative spirit. Thus we encourage the solicitation and acceptance of gifts that enable us to fulfill our mission. All fundraising efforts on behalf of The Pike School are approved by the Office of Advancement, including, but not limited to, letter, email, and phone solicitations.

The primary objectives of The Pike School Office of Advancement are:

  • To ensure a secure financial future for The Pike School by engaging current parents, alumni parents, alumni, grandparents, Trustees, faculty, staff and friends philanthropically to benefit Pike
  • Provide excellent stewardship of all donations
  • Maintain and cultivate the sense of community that alumni experienced as students and work to strengthen their affiliation with the school through an active alumni association

Annual Fund Q & A

Why doesn’t the school just raise tuition?

Like our peer schools, Pike strives to keep the Pike education accessible to all qualified applicants. In fact, tuition-wise, Pike is the most economical school in relation to our peers on the North Shore. The Annual Fund fully funds 8% of the operating budget while giving donors the benefit of a tax deduction to the full extent of the law.

What benefits are associated with giving to the Annual Fund?

In addition to feeling good about being a part of a supportive community:

  • Your donation directly affects the experience of Pike children in this school year.
  • All contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by IRS regulations. If you have any questions, you may want to contact your financial advisor.
  • All contributors will be acknowledged in the Annual Report at the appropriate giving level.
  • Who is asked to give to the Annual Fund?

    Each year in the fall we ask the Board of Trustees, current parents, former parents, alumni, the faculty, staff, administration, grandparents, and friends to support the Annual Fund.

    How much should I give to the Annual Fund?

    We ask everyone to make a tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund that best represents their giving ability.

    Can I direct my gift to a specific project?

    Yes! We encourage you to direct your donation to key areas of the school that match your interests and priorities. While marking the box “Wherever Pike needs it most" allows Pike the greatest flexibility to meet its financial needs, we know that supporting a specific aspect of the school allows you to appreciate more deeply the impact of your gift on the lives of Pike children. Feel free to designate your gift to one or more of the following areas:

    Wherever Pike needs it most

    Technology and Innovation

    Arts (Music, Drama, Studio)

    Financial Aid

    Curriculum and Professional Development

    Physical Education and Athletics

    Can I pay my pledge with a credit card or appreciated securities?

    You may pay with a credit card or transfer appreciated securities to Pike.
