Parent Giving

Your Support Makes All the Difference

For more than two centuries, Salem Academy has encouraged, challenged, and supported young women to fulfill their ultimate potential. To do so year after year requires passion, expertise — and resources.

Parents’ support of the Salem Academy Fund plays a crucial role in ensuring the Academy’s success, strength, and future. It provides the Academy with discretionary funding that is vital to the operations of the institution.


There are many ways to ensure a Salem experience for the girls and women of today and tomorrow. . .

Matching Gift Programs

If you or your spouse work for a company with a matching gift program, you could double or even triple your gift!
