Annual Fund

The Annual Fund sustains excellence at Fessenden. With more than 1,000 parents, alumni, faculty, and friends donating every year, the School is able to continue its tradition of providing an outstanding education where honesty, compassion, and respect are integral to every student’s day.

Gifts to the Annual Fund help bridge the gap between Fessenden’s tuition and what it actually costs to educate our boys. Tuition alone covers 75 percent of the cost of a Fessenden education. Your donation supports vital priorities like attracting and retaining outstanding faculty, ensuring that our boys have the resources they need to engage with learning in and out of the classroom, and providing financial aid for qualified students.

Every donation makes an immediate impact on the School’s operating budget and demonstrates your belief in Fessenden’s mission. We thank you in advance for your consideration in making Fessenden’s Annual Fund a philanthropic priority.

A Thank You Message to Our Donors

“On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees, I share my gratitude to the entire Fessenden community—we continue to be incredibly grateful for the ongoing commitment to our School. It is an enormous source of pride for me as an alumnus and parent, and I’m deeply appreciative for your support of Fessenden, its core values of honesty, compassion, and respect, and the community that represents each of them on a daily basis.”
— Sol J. Kumin ’90 P ’25, ’26, Board of Trustees President
