Pike Giving Day 2019 Resuts

You Did It!

Hello, Pike Community,

Something amazing happened at The Pike School today. Members of our community, from parents to alums, from grandparents to students, from past parents to friends, came together in a day of generosity, philanthropy, and just-plain-fun. And the results were tremendous.

As I write this, our #PikeGivingDay2019 campaign has reached 320 gifts, far surpassing our 200-gift goal. These gifts came as matches and challenges, sponsors and pledges. They came as tens, hundred, thousands of dollars, or even pocket change. And every gift will help strengthen our school, expand our programs, and power Pike into the future.

This day would not have been possible without you. The energy, enthusiasm and dedication our community showed today was truly inspiring. I thank you for your support, I thank you for your gifts, and I thank you for powering Pike.

With gratitude,

John "Muddy" Waters
Head of School

Sponsor Spotlights

Here at Pike, we love to share the love! So here is some more spotlights of our amazing sponsors!

Charles Construction is in the house (because they helped build it).  Thank you for your work in remodeling our cafeteria, PreK, and FLEX spaces, and for being matching sponsors of #PikeGivingDay2019.

#PikeGivingDay2019 is going places thanks to matching sponsors Tewksbury Transit!  We love the way they get our students to sport and field trip destinations safely and on time (and the way they stepped up quickly to join the Giving Day sponsor team.)

#PikeGivingDay2019 is a community-wide event, so it just makes sense that the Office of Community Life is a sponsor again this year.  Thank you, Michael, Sharon, and Shaun for your support and efforts on behalf of Pike!

We love our #PikeGivingDay2019 sponsor Aequitas Investment Advisors.  They have the challenging job of managing our school’s endowment, and they bring expertise, market savvy, and great customer service to their work every day.  Thank you, Aequitas!

#PikeGivingDay2019 is cooking with gas, and we have Eastern Propane to thank!  Kudos to Eastern Propane for sponsoring this day and offering a match. Go Pike!

We couldn't do it without their help, so THANK YOU SPONSORS!

Don't Miss Out! Giving Day Is Not Over Yet!!!

Hello, Pike Community,

#PikeGivingDay2019 is surpassing all expectations. We've met our goal of 200 gifts in one day.
 
As we have been tracking those gifts, the enthusiasm in the school among the teachers and staff, our volunteers, and our parents is palpable. Our students, who are celebrating a Pike Spirit Day, are excited to be a part of the overall community vibe. The online atmosphere is equally charged with positive energy.
 
In typical Pike fashion, however, we are not resting on our laurels.
 
Thanks to a generous challenge by the Dahod/Dohadwala/Vajihi Family, if we get to 300 gifts, The Pike School will unlock an additional $5,000!
 
Help us see how far we can go. Together.  Follow our progress, and make your gift today!

 
Let's make history!

Sponsor Spotlights

We are fortunate to have an amazing and committed group of sponsors helping us to power Pike today! Our Giving Day sponsors have provided matching and challenge funds, and at Pike we love to make a fuss when good people do a good thing. So join us for some Sponsor Spotlights!

Thank you to our awesome Parents Association for being sponsors of #PikeGivingDay2019!  They’re great partners in the Pike community, and we couldn’t be happier to have their support!  Thank you, Jenn and team!

We’re so thrilled to have The Print House as a sponsor of Giving Day! Print House helps Pike look great with their quality printing (Giving Day postcard, anyone?).  Thank you to Paul and his team for helping Pike reach our goals today.

As matching sponsors, Fred C. Church Insurance is insuring our success of #PikeGivingDay2019!  They’ve been long-time supporters of Pike, and we’re so glad to have their continued help with our school’s insurance.

Mike McCullom and his team at Custom Benefit Group stepped up again this year to as sponsors of #PikeGivingDay2019 – Pike faculty and staff rely on them to keep our health costs under control and our benefits strong.  Thank you, Custom Benefit Group, for being all you do for Pike.

Thank you to all of these amazing sponsors, and stay tuned this afternoon for more Sponsor Spotlights!

What Does Philanthropy Mean To Our Kindergartners?

Part of our mission at The Pike School is to prepare our students to be responsible citizens, so it's no surprise that in advance of Giving Day, the Kindergarten team took the opportunity to talk about philanthropy with their classes. They asked the kids what they could do to be philanthropic, and their answers are thoughtful, fantastic and spot on!
