Parent Giving

Parents of current students generously gave $1,994,794 of the $2.5 million raised for the 2020–2021 Annual Fund. Co-Chairs Adam Abramson P ’23, ’26, Kirsten Hughes P ’28, ’30, Tad and Melissa Yanagi P ’27, ’29, ’31—along with 23 Annual Fund Grade Captains—worked diligently to generate 88% parent participation. We are grateful to each and every family who makes a commitment to Fessenden by supporting the Annual Fund. 

In addition to a financial contribution, parents can give back to Fessenden by volunteering their time and talents through a variety of opportunities through the Parents Association. Click here to learn more.

This year's Annual Fund supports:

    • Additional nursing staff to keep our community healthy

    • New digital media programming with technology and equipment

    • Camp Burgess trip and orientation experiences

    • Financial aid assistance to help deserving boys attend Fessenden

    • Professional development opportunities for teachers and staff

    • New furniture for middle and upper school classrooms

“We're immensely grateful to each of our 1,115 donors who collectively gave $2.5 million to the Annual Fund during the 2020-21 school year! Your generosity and commitment to the Fessenden community is outstanding and continues to strengthen and shape the educational experience for our sons. We are deeply appreciative for the Annual Fund volunteers who advocated for this important fundraising effort and helped us reach 88% parent participation. Thank you for the support you continue to share with Fessenden.”
