The Fessenden School is lucky to have you. You’re part of a community that includes our faculty, families, alumni, trustees, and friends, whose generosity is critical to ensuring that the excellent educational experience Fessenden has provided for over 100 years will continue for at least 100 more.

Every donation, large or small, matters in helping us educate and prepare young boys for success and a lifetime love of learning. Heartfelt thanks to the 1,000 members of our extended family who give both their resources and their time selflessly each year. The Annual Fund raises more than $1.8 million and those additional dollars make the School an even better place for our teachers and students.

Our thanks, in advance, to those who will support us this year by donating to the Annual Fund, volunteering their time, or being ambassadors to the School in any other way. We could not deliver on our mission without your continued support.

The reason for including Fessenden in my will was prompted by a love and appreciation for the school’s impact on my life as well as the memories of those Masters who taught me not to settle for mediocrity.”
