Since its founding in 1971, Pulaski Academy has been dedicated to educational excellence as Arkansas’s premier college preparatory institution. At the heart of this educational experience has been the relationship between the faculty and the students and a commitment to nurture and challenge every student. The consistent success of our students is testimony to PA’s commitment to excellence and to our place as a leader in education.

What is the PA Endowment?

Endowment gifts provide a perpetual benefit for the students of today and tomorrow. Earnings from these endowed funds are used to enhance the educational experience. Pulaski Academy’s greatest and best hope for a financially secure future is an adequate, unrestricted Endowment, invested and managed for growth.

Individuals and families have found endowed gifts to be a wonderful way to support the school and ensure the stability of PA for generations to come. Whether you are interested in establishing a new fund or supporting an existing fund, we welcome your support.

General Endowment Funds
Unrestricted endowment funds are the most beneficial to the school, as they provide the most flexibility to direct the earnings to the most pressing needs. Gifts in any amount are welcome for building PA’s general endowment assets. Naming opportunities are available to those who wish to make an unrestricted endowment gift. A named endowment fund can be established with a minimum gift of $10,000 in honor or memory of a family member, loved one, or significant individual in PA’s history.

Endowed Scholarships
Every academic program at PA can benefit from endowment funding. Donors are therefore welcome to designate a gift to the endowment for a specific purpose, based on their interests, or the interests of the person whom their gift honors. Minimum amounts to establish a restricted fund will vary depending on the purpose of the fund ($10,000 minimum.)

Giving Opportunities
Opportunities to help build PA’s Endowment are available at many levels. Some options include:

• Gift to an existing endowed fund
• Tribute gift to a current fund
• $10,000+ to establish scholarship/tribute fund
• $50,000 to $200,000 to endow ¼ to full tuition financial aid scholarship
• Making a planned gift

For further information about naming an endowed fund or contributing to an existing fund, please contact Leanna Wall , Head of Advancement, at 501-604-1913.

Why is Annual Fund so Important?

The Annual Fund is the cornerstone on which the foundation of a “value-added education” at Pulaski Academy is built. Gifts by our dedicated parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, trustees, and friends have a profound impact on the advancement of the institution. These gifts allow the school to support enhancements in technology, attract and retain top-notch faculty, expand facilities for academic programs, and provide an atmosphere of learning unique to the greater Little Rock area. Every gift to the Annual Fund has an impact on the lives of our students and the quality of their education.

Participation in the 2018-2019 Annual Fund has raised $312,487 to date.
