Third Decade Fund

The Third Decade Fund has started strong.  As of October 5, 2017, our Staff, students, Board of Trustees, current and graduate families, alumni and Friends of Parker have raised $268,482 towards our $500,000 goal to fix Parker's roof! 

PARKER unites us all under one roof...

Parker is a beacon of transformative education committed to its core principles, a robust student-centered education, and substantive connections with multiple communities and strategic partners. Priorities in Parker’s Third Decade include:

  • Upgrade facilities;
  • Enhance technology to support student learning;
  • Promote teacher innovation, experimentation, and discovery;
  • Increase diversity of staff and student body;
  • Expand dissemination of best practices;
  • Strengthen connections to key constituencies and partners.

Replacing the roof is the first big project of Parker’s Third Decade. We need $500,000 in gifts for capital and operations by January 2018.

How can I make my donation to Parker?

  • You can make a one-time donation to Parker by sending a check made out to The Sizer Foundation, Inc. The Sizer Foundation is a public charity whose purpose is to raise funds for the Parker Charter Essential School and the Theodore R. Sizer Teachers Center
  • Become a Green & Black donor! Visit and use your credit card or checking account to make a one-time gift, or schedule a weekly, monthly, or quarterly donation to the Third Decade Fund. If every Parker family gave $10 a week over the next two school years, we would meet our $500,000 goal.
Help Parker’s meaningful work continue into its Third Decade.
