Parent Giving

Parents of current students generously gave $2,002,663 of the $2.5 million raised for the 2021–2022 Annual Fund. Co-Chairs Adam Abramson P ’23, ’26, Kirsten Hughes P ’28, ’30, and Tad and Melissa Yanagi P ’27, ’29, ’31—along with 25 Annual Fund Volunteers—worked diligently to generate 86% parent participation. A heartfelt thank you to each and every family who made 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 many initiatives including:

    • Competitive and compelling faculty salaries and benefits

    • Additional 3D printers, power drill, and screw guns for the CCI

    • Helmets and jerseys for the football program

    • Increased Financial Aid assistance

    • Field study trips to Camp Burgess and Washington DC

    • New Xylophones and a set of Orff mallets for Lower School music

“We extend our deep gratitude to Fessenden’s collective community of donors who continue to make the School a philanthropic priority, raising $2,544,806 for the Annual Fund during the 2021-22 school year! Gifts from all members of the community, including 86% participation among current parents, made an immediate impact on the remarkable educators who develop all Fessy boys into active and engaged learners. We also want to recognize and thank the many fundraising volunteers who helped to make the Annual Fund campaign a success!”
