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