Frequently Asked Questions

What is Giving Day?

Portsmouth Abbey School’s Giving Day is a high-energy, fast-moving, 24-hour period taking place from midnight to midnight on March 2, 2021. It’s a special day for alumni, parents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to come together and show that through their support of the Annual Fund, the Abbey can rise to the current challenges and be stronger than ever.

Why should I participate in Giving Day?

Giving Day is an opportunity for the global Abbey community to come together and show their Abbey pride through support of the Annual Fund. It is an opportunity to make a direct impact on all aspects of the student experience and support young men and women as they grow in knowledge and grace.

As a special opportunity, Annual Fund gifts on Giving Day will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000, DOUBLING the impact of your support!

What are the goals?

Our goal is to receive at least 500 Annual Fund gifts.

How do I make my gift?

On March 2, please make an Annual Fund Giving Day gift using one of three ways:

  • Make your gift on this site with the "Give Now" button. 
  • Venmo your gift @PortsmouthAbbey
  • Call Stefanie Polgar, Development Office Coordinator & Database Manager, between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. EST at 401.643.1269.

 What if I already made my Annual Fund gift?

Thank you for your support! You can still participate by encouraging others to join you in giving, particularly through a match or challenge to your class. You may also wish to make an additional Annual Fund gift to help us reach our goal of 600 donors and the $100,000 challenge. Your additional Annual Fund gift on Giving Day will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
