Future Focused

Let’s dream big. Imagine what Parker might do with
a $100M unrestricted endowment.

A Community Challenge for Unrestricted Endowment

Thanks to a generous $1 million unrestricted gift from an anonymous community member, Parker is fortunate to be able to match (1:1) unrestricted gifts of $25,000 to $100,000 to the endowment, providing donors the opportunity to establish a named fund. Gifts to this initiative can be made over a 5-year period.

Unrestricted gifts to the endowment demonstrate a commitment to preserving Parker’s legacy—its mission, philosophy and culture of community, with an eye to its future, achieving long-term mission-driven goals and initiatives and keeping our campus responsive to student need and school size.

Your participation takes Parker further.
A meaningful investment in unrestricted endowment can help Parker meet the industry goal of doubling its operating expenses and compete with similarly-sized independent schools. 

Together, let’s build...

  • An endowment that funds access and affordability, making diversity, equity and inclusion achievable—not aspirational
  • A learning environment with resources that takes student ideas from concept to real world application
  • The ability to reach and attract outstanding employees from more diverse professional and cultural backgrounds with greater ability to retain them
  • An opportunity to shift our funding model and reduce our reliance on tuition
  • The promise that Parker and its mission will endure
