The Potomac Fund is the cornerstone of philanthropy at Potomac, providing critical support to the school’s operating budget for the current fiscal year.

It helps cover the difference between tuition and the actual cost of a Potomac education…

It augments faculty salaries and benefits, financial aid programs, and curriculum development…

And it serves as an expression of thanks, appreciation, and confidence in our faculty and staff for all that they do to enrich the lives of our children.

This year we are fortunate to have the inspirational leadership of current parents Brandi White, Kate Robbins, Bob Djorup and Edward Rossotti '90, as well as Alumni Chairs Emily Duncan ’00, Catherine Kahl Linskey '09, Sarah Murphy Starr '99 and Frank Zarb ’77. They lead an enthusiastic and capable team, listed below. A special thank you to all of our volunteers for their commitment and their motivation to make this the best year yet for the Potomac Fund!

As we strive for full participation among the entire Potomac community, we invite you to show your support by making a gift to the Potomac Fund. Your participation, at any amount, is needed and deeply appreciated.
