Senior Parent Gift

In what has become an Ursuline tradition, the Senior Parent Gift program encourages parents of the graduating class to come together to honor their daughters with a collective gift to the school.

This campaign is part of the school's Annual Fund effort and gives parents an opportunity to celebrate their daughter’s Ursuline experience by funding a project that provides an impactful enhancement to the Academy. In selecting this project, the Senior Parent Gift Committee also takes into consideration the benefit for the maximum number of students. To make a gift or pledge of support, please contact the Director of Advancement at 781-493-7711 or make a gift online here, selecting Class of 2020 Senior Parent Gift as the gift designation.

This year, the funds raised from parents of seniors will be used toward the renovation of our main school lobby, an important piece of our campus-wide safety and security plan. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff on our campus is a priority for all of us, and we are happy that the Senior Parent Gift Committee has chosen this project to facilitate these improvements to our school.
