Challenge Grant from Mary Morton Parsons Foundation to Support Orchard House School’s Capital Improvements

Monday, June 10, 2019

We are thrilled to announce that Orchard House School has received a $150,000 Challenge Grant from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation in support of the school’s capital improvements. In order for our all-girl’s middle school to receive the full grant amount, we must raise an additional $150,000 by May 2020. Exterior work has already commenced on Orchard House’s century-old building and will continue throughout the summer and into the fall of 2019. Repairs to the roof, window restoration, masonry repair, and landscape design are being undertaken so that the beauty of these spaces will endure.


Orchard House School has organized a fundraising campaign appropriately named Building With A Purpose.  The cost of the exterior improvements is over $500,000. Orchard House School is honored to have the support of the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation and is working to achieve our fundraising goals.


To support our challenge grant goal, make a gift to the Building With a Purpose campaign here.
