We are pleased to announce the installation of both a celebratory tribute bench and donor wall to commemorate the success of Character & Community: The Campaign for Fessenden’s Endowment.
Please take a moment to visit the bench, located outside the entrance to Bernon Hall. It serves as a physical symbol of our community’s remarkable support and honors the memory of the late Elizabeth Alling Sewall, Fessenden’s Director of Institutional Advancement, 2007-2012. The newly installed donor wall can be found inside the Bernon Hall lobby and lists the names of more than 500 donors, who through their generous support of Fessenden’s endowment have strengthened the financial foundation of our School in perpetuity.
Thanks to the collective generosity of more than two thousand parents, alumni, parents of alumni, and friends, we exceeded our goal for Character & Community with $25,250,000 in total dollars raised in support of faculty compensation, financial aid and the Annual Fund. The Campaign Report that was published earlier this year recognized the broad support received from members of the Fessenden community who contributed to the success of the campaign with gifts to both the Annual Fund and endowment. We are incredibly grateful for the commitment and loyalty of each and every donor—thank you!
