The Purnell Fund, Our School's Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is established to provide Purnell with unrestricted support for current operations, which are not covered by tuition. Currently, the Annual Fund contributes approximately 7% of the School's operating budget each year.
Participation from our alumnae and parents has increased over the past two years, while 100% of our faculty and staff have supported the Annual Fund for nine consecutive years, reflecting a strong commitment to the work that happens here at Purnell by all members of the Purnell Family.
We recognize the generosity of our donors through the following giving categories and strongly encourage our younger alumnae to participate through the Decade Club as a way to remain connected to Purnell and support the students of today.
