The 2023 Day of Giving raised an unprecedented amount for Parker teachers!

What a way to celebrate ten years of the Day of Giving. 

Since 2014, your donations to the Day of Giving have allowed Parker to invest an additional $4.1M in the areas that enhance the experience for our teachers: faculty professional development and salaries. 

An enormous thank you to everyone who made a gift. You helped us move beyond our original goal of $750,000 and raise over $820,000!

Similarly, we breezed past our original goal of 850 donors, ending the Day of Giving with over 950 outstanding contributors. You all helped us unlock every class match and challenge.  

Participation by grade level ranged from 77% to 97%, with Grade 3 at number one!

An enormous, unending thank you to everyone who made a gift to support our fantastic faculty and staff during this year’s Day of Giving.
