Q. What is the FPD Fund?
A. The FPD Fund is the avenue through which our families and friends are able to enrich the educational experiences of the students at FPD. This fund allows us to enhance resources and opportunities beyond the basic educational costs covered by tuition. It provides state-of-the-art resources and technology in classrooms, modernized science and language labs, campus renovations and updates, additions to our athletic and Fine Arts programs, and gifts for the Tuition Assistance Program.
Q. Is my gift tax deductible?
A. FPD is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, so gifts made to the school do qualify for a tax deduction. Please consult your tax advisor for rules governing your tax situation.
Q. Why should my gift be unrestricted?
A. FPD Fund gifts are typically unrestricted so that they may be used wherever they are needed the most. This enables the administration and faculty to make sure that the specific needs of FPD are met. Of course, gifts which are designated to a particular program are also welcome.
Q. Who gives to the FPD Fund?
A. FPD receives FPD Fund support from all members of the FPD community including parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, board members, friends of the school and foundations.
