2023-2024 Support Annual Giving

We’re Counting On You.

Poly’s Annual Giving campaign is at the heart of everything we do.

Everything you value about Poly is made possible by Annual Giving. Participation at any level is your commitment to helping our students become intelligent, capable, and self-aware citizens, who are fully prepared to pursue their dreams and ambitions.

As you know, tuition alone doesn’t cover the scope of your child’s Poly experience. We rely on every gift no matter the size to help bridge the gap. And we can’t do it without you. Giving back is an enduring tradition at our school. It’s what parents, along with faculty, staff, alumni, and friends, have always done: support Annual Giving to raise the bar to which we hold ourselves. We hope to continue to create remarkable opportunities for Poly students with your support.

Together we can shape the future of Poly.

Your gift to the Annual Giving fund is more than a show of support. It represents your dedication to the student experience and making every day at Poly Prep extraordinary.

Understanding Poly’s finances is the first step to understanding its need for support. Annual Giving bridges the gap between tuition and operating expenses. Annual Giving keeps the cost to attend Poly more affordable. And unlike tuition, your gift to  Annual Giving is 100% tax deductible.

Annual Giving

An investment in education is a belief in the Poly students who shape our future – the stewards and changemakers in the world!”
