Our donors and their reasons for giving

The Peck School has always been a collective effort—one in which every student, every family, every educator, and every donor plays a critical role.

That unifying sense of mission endures to this day. Even in the midst of this campaign for our future, a foundational loyalty spurs on a new generation of teachers and learners, builders and dreamers, supporters and stewards—all of whom pour their time, talent, and treasure into sustaining Peck.

Our donors to The Peck Promise Campaign are deeply committed, and fully engaged members of the Peck family, with unique stories that reveal both why they chose this school and how this school has helped to shape who they and their families are today. In the spirit of getting to know each other just a little bit better, here are their Peck stories:
