The 7th annual all-school Philanthropy Week is November 7 - 11, 2016 with a series of events and programs celebrating the spirit of giving.
It is an opportunity for the entire Porter-Gaud family to come together, live our mission, and gain a greater understanding of philanthropy and giving back in our Charleston community. This unique experience involves all Porter-Gaud students, families, faculty, and staff members.
