Polly T. Donald Enrichment Fund

Established as a tribute to former head of school, Polly Donald, this fund provides a unique opportunity for faculty and staff to revitalize and grow outside of the classroom, honoring Polly’s belief that an individual’s personal growth inevitably enriches those with whom they comes into contact.
