Annual Giving

Girls in Hallway

At NPS, Annual Giving is our top philanthropic priority every year. Each and every year, we ask all members of our school community to support Annual Giving at a level that is meaningful to them. Above all, we strive for 100% participation. So, while there are many opportunities to support NPS throughout the year, we ask our families to make Annual Giving their first gift every year.

NPS is able to provide an extraordinary school environment with the help of contributions from the extended NPS community—parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, foundations, and corporations. Thank you!
