Senior Parent Gift Fund
Class of 2024: This year the funds raised will be used to improve the furnishings for students and teachers in some of our classrooms. With the funds raised, several of the school’s classrooms will be outfitted with new desks, chairs, and teacher workstations as a lasting tribute to the Class of 2024. The goal is to raise $30,000 for this project, with 100% participation. No gift is too small and no gift is too big.

What is the Senior Parent Gift Fund? An annual 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 Giving 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.
If you are interested in serving on the Senior Parent Gift Committee, or to make a gift or pledge of support, please contact the Director of Annual Giving at 781-493-7715 or make a gift online here.
