A CULTURE OF PHILANTHROPY
Porter-Gaud believes in giving back to the community whom we serve. Community service has been at the core of the school since Dr. Porter founded it in 1867. While service is not required of our students, we enjoy broad participation in a wide variety of projects throughout the year. Compassion, empathy, and care for those in need are essential to becoming a Porter-Gaud graduate.
Our entire school community participates in:
- The Holiday Toy Drive
- Relay for Life
- Charitable Races
- World Food Day food drive
- Canned food drive at our annual faculty vs student basketball game.
Our students work with more than 30 local, national, and international non-profit organizations every year.
