Like most independent schools, we rely on your support to sustain this high level of progressive education. We ask our generous community of parents, alumni, faculty, staff, past parents, trustees and friends to support Parker through the Parker Fund, Special Events, Endowment, Planned Giving and through Major Gifts that are meaningful to them. We believe all gifts of any amount can make a difference. 

There are many ways you can contribute to Francis W. Parker School. Every gift, regardless of its size, sends a strong message that you are committed to our students and their education. You may make a gift in a variety of ways, including cash, check, credit card and gifts of stock.
