About

Join us on Ring the Bell: Pingry's Annual Celebration of Giving

Ring the Bell: Pingry's Annual Celebration of Giving is an opportunity for alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends to join as one, over the span of 48 hours, to celebrate Pingry. It’s a time to show our collective support for all that is happening on our campuses every day—the phenomenal education our students are receiving, plus all of the other moments large and small that provide them with memories and connections that last a lifetime. 

Pingry's Board of Trustees and members of the Administrative Team, Pingry School Parents’ Association and Pingry Alumni Association executive boards, and the Senior Class Giving Committee are making a gift of $1,861, up to $625,000, every time a new donor makes a Pingry Fund gift.

*To have gifts count in Ring the Bell, gifts and pledges must be made between 12:00 a.m. EDT, Monday, September 27 and 11:59 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, September 28, and must be from individuals who have not made a Pingry Fund commitment this fiscal year (July 1-June 30). 

Your Pingry Fund gift plays a critical role in supporting the School’s annual operating budget and is immediately used during the school year. Pingry Fund support impacts every aspect of a Pingry education, including the retention of and professional growth opportunities for our faculty, installation of new technology, enhancements to the fine and visual arts programs, resources for athletic teams, and financial aid for current students.

Inspiration

“I’m the most inspired by the environment created by the student body. I love being able to learn from my peers and have that opportunity to constantly better myself inside and outside of the classroom. There are so many positive figures and strong characters that I am so lucky to have interactions with everyday.”

-Giles Burnett ‘22

“What I love most about Pingry is that everyone there has a happy personality and a warm heart. In these tough COVID times, Pingry has tried hard to make school safe and welcome for all.”

-Lara Kumar ‘29

“I have been at Pingry since kindergarten, and I have enjoyed every year of it. I think Pingry's class curriculum and teachers really make the whole school experience better, and I am very thankful I get to be a part of Pingry's community.”

-Isabelle Chen ‘25

“At Pingry, we are exposed to so many real-world experiences right from our classrooms. Our hands-on approach to learning guarantees students that they're ready to face the world.”

-Sam Nkansah

“The minute I walked into the school, I knew that I was meant to go here. I have always felt so privileged to be able to go to Pingry. The teachers here are really dedicated to helping us understand the material. I’m always getting a chance to interact with my peers. And I can really see that my teachers have a passion for what they do. I feel challenged, and I am always being pushed to my limits. I feel comfortable with going above and beyond, and thinking outside the box.”

-Emily Atienza’ 27

“There is a lot of heart in this community. Even with the strange times we are going through I continue to be inspired by the mutual support this community provides. People will speak up and share what is or is not working, whether invited to do so or not, and we all strive to make this all work better, for students, faculty and staff.”

-Russell Christian, Lower School Art Teacher

“Teaching is a unique calling. Being a Pingry teacher elevates the opportunity to help nurture and guide the young minds of our students. They are the future, and we hope to prepare them for a quickly changing world and to give them the moral and intellectual tools to make decisions that will help propel all people forward.”

-Kennedy Buckley, 4th Grade Homeroom and Math Teacher
