The Cyclone Fund enables Porter-Gaud to:

  • Support faculty development, scholarly exploration and competitive salaries;
  • Provide enhanced academic opportunities;
  • Allow students to participate in co-curricular activities and serve our community;
  • Provide funding for essential technology enhancements;
  • Supplement financial aid and scholarships, and
  • Respond to other critical and immediate needs as they arise.

Since tuition does not fully cover the actual cost of a student’s education, your support helps bridge the gap, ensuring we can provide a high-quality education at a price that students and families can afford.

Your gift to the Cyclone Fund is an investment in our students and faculty and an endorsement of our mission and vision.
