    Gifts-in-Kind are tangible gifts of personal property, such as artwork, furnishings, books, historical collections, and equipment.

For more information on Gifts-in-Kind, contact the Advancement Office 973-539-8660 ext. 113.
  • Planned Giving

    Planned Giving is an effective and mutually beneficial way of giving to The Peck School. By making a planned gift, you assist Peck in its mission of providing an academically challenging and distinctive elementary education, while enjoying the benefits of capital gains tax savings, increased income, and income-tax savings. Most importantly, a planned gift maximizes your giving potential while ensuring your future financial security and that of your loved ones.

    Anyone who notifies The Peck School of a planned gift becomes a member of The Sutphen Society and will be recognized accordingly in the Annual Report.
  • Capital Campaigns

    Capital Campaigns support projects not otherwise funded by tuition. The Campaign for Peck, completed in June 2006, raised funds to build our Athletic Center and to expand our Upper School academic building, which includes the state-of-the-art Higgins Library. In January 2018, we we thrilled to launch The Peck Promise: The Campaign for Excellence Elevated. This $12 million initiative empowers Peck to build on the strong foundations of our campus and our traditions; to create space for innovation, inspiration, and ingenuity; and to elevate the enduring excellence of The Peck School.

    As a community we benefit from the generosity of those who came before us and it is our obligation to give for the future. When these special projects arise, we ask members of the school community to participate with both an annual gift and a capital contribution. Once again, participation by every family is the key to success.

    For more information on Capital Campaigns and making a gift, contact the Advancement Office at 973-539-8660 x 113
