Partnership with parents, especially with Fessenden’s fundraising efforts, is an integral part of ensuring all students’ success. To educate our community on the importance of giving to the Annual Fund, we rely on 25 parent volunteers, led by Co-Chairs Adam Abramson P ’23, ’26, Kirsten Hughes P ’28, ’30, and Tad and Melissa Yanagi P ’27, ’29, ’31. Collectively, this team of volunteers helped achieve an 84% giving rate among Fessenden parents last year.

Co-Chairs Quote
​​Once again, thank you! Parent giving has proven to be the foundation of the Annual Fund, accounting for 80% of the $2.4 million raised in the 2022-23 school year. Gifts from our parent community demonstrate a collective commitment to the teachers, coaches, specialists, and mentors who care for our sons' education while at Fessenden. Our boys are fortunate to benefit from your generosity, and we are forever grateful for your support.”
