Step Into the Parent Circle

What is the Parent Circle?

The Parent Circle is a community of parents who have made a gift of financial support to Penn Charter.

Any gift this year from a current family, to any fund at Penn Charter, makes you part of the Parent Circle. This includes gifts to the Annual Fund, the Grace Fund, the Senior Parent Gift, financial aid, faculty professional development and the campus transformation — all of which are included in the How Far? capital campaign.

Billy and I contribute to the Penn Charter Annual Fund yearly because we believe and support the school's commitment to the Quaker philosophy of integrity and faith toward educating our children, meeting them where they are academically, socially and emotionally.
