Red & Gray Society

Leadership giving is essential to the fulfillment of Fessenden’s mission. Accounting for 90% of the money raised each year for the Annual Fund, gifts of $2,500 or more create a strong foundation for our fundraising success. Leadership gifts, both for capital and Annual Fund initiatives at Fessenden, are recognized through the Red & Gray Society and are acknowledged each year in the School’s Report of Giving. If you are able to make a leadership gift to Fessenden, we welcome your support at the following Red & Gray gift levels:
