About

Dear Orchard, 

For nearly a century, The Orchard School has enjoyed a tradition of Progressive education in an environment where each family plays an active role in the school community. The Orchard community is a strong one in every respect! I am so excited to be joining a community that has such compassionate members that give generously through time, talent, and resources. 

When you give time in the classroom, volunteer for the Parents' Association, and generously support the Owl Fund, previously known as Annual Giving, your gift helps Orchard fulfill its mission. Right now, children need more space than ever to explore, learn, and grow and our teachers need more resources than ever before! The vibrant life of our school is made possible by the ongoing philanthropic support and volunteerism of all our community members. Thank you. We would not be here without you. 

Because of you, our thinking is unrestricted. Unrestricted by the preconceived, accepted, or fashionable. Orchard is free to engage with our students in passionate, creative, and experiential ways. Because of you, we have unrestricted possibilities when it comes to producing leaders who create immediate and lasting values for themselves, their families, and their communities. Unrestricted by the barriers of convention and routine, there's no limit to what Orchard can achieve. 

The Owl Fund is one of the school's most critical resources in order to continue educating students. As with all independent schools, Orchard relies on our community to give annually to help us fund projects and programs that make us the unique school we are today. 

Please consider a gift no matter the size. With your support, the possibilities are endless. 

Sincerely, 

Taylor Whitaker
Director of Development
