Annual Fund

Each year gifts of all levels from families, alumnae, trustees, faculty, staff and friends provide Purnell with critical resources to support our highly individualized, progressive learning environment. So many members of our extended community give to the Annual Fund because of the experiences and opportunities students have benefitted from for more than 50 years.

The Annual Fund enables you to give what you can while knowing that you are joining others in making a positive impact on our mission. And, when more of our community gives to Purnell, it greatly influences our ability to secure grants from foundations and other organizations.

The Annual Fund is the most direct way for you to support Purnell. Thank you in advance for your consideration and for being a true partner in the education of all Purnell Girls.
