Giving

Groton Fund

The Groton Fund contributes approximately 11 percent to Groton’s annual budget, which allows the school to offer extraordinary opportunities to its students. We are grateful to our generous alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, and friends who help Groton reach its goal each year. Every gift makes an impact. Thank you.
Dear Members of the Groton Community,
 
We are fortunate to have so many dedicated alumni, parents, and friends who support the school each year through the Groton Fund. We are pleased to share that we surpassed our 2016-17 Groton Fund goals and raised $3,898,881. Over 50% of our alumni and 94% of our current parents participated by making a gift. These are incredible participation rates and highlight the commitment so many share for our school. Thank you for your continued generosity. We would also like to extend our gratitude to our alumni and parent volunteers who work tirelessly on behalf of the school.
 
Each academic year, the Groton Fund effort begins again. Funds raised through the Groton Fund support every aspect of our school from academics, athletics, the arts, our beloved faculty, our students, as well as financial support for talented students who may not otherwise be able to attend. Please join us and make a gift to the 2017-18 Groton Fund. We need your help to reach our goal of $4,090,800 by June 30, 2018.
 
Groton remains committed to nurturing and encouraging students to lead lives of character, learning, leadership, and service. Your support enables our tradition of excellence on the Circle to continue to thrive. Thank you for considering making an investment in our school.
 
With sincere appreciation,
