The Perse held its fifth annual telephone campaign from 3 to 17 September 2018. We enjoyed catching up with many Old Perseans, past parents and friends of the School, alongside gaining support for our An Enduring Gift campaign.
If you have any questions about this year’s campaign, please contact Sarah Gordon, Deputy Development Director, on firstname.lastname@example.org or (+44) 1223 403836.
Philanthropy at The Perse
Charitable giving has been at the heart of The Perse since Dr Stephen Perse left substantial funds to realise his vision of setting up a first class educational establishment in 1615. The funds raised during our telephone campaigns help us to provide life-changing opportunities for young people from a wide range of backgrounds by promoting goals inspired by our founder’s philanthropy:
• Means-tested bursaries for pupils who would not otherwise be able to access a Perse education. You can hear from former pupils and parents whose lives have been transformed by bursaries here.
• Outreach work in the local community such as our partnerships with local primary schools
• Facilities that support and enhance our core mission, such as the new Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre to provide a space for learning beyond the classroom
Thank you to all our donors, particularly those who made the 2018 telephone campaign the most successful Perse campaign to date.
