Our sixth annual telephone campaign took place with callers telephoning from 2 to 16 September 2019. We saw recent school leavers catch 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 the 2019 campaign, please contact the Alumni and Development Office on firstname.lastname@example.org or (+44) 1223 403808.
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
