Philanthropy Week

The 8th annual all-school Philanthropy Week is November 6 - 10, 2017 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.
