Dear Members of the Groton Community,
We are fortunate to have so many dedicated alumni, parents, and friends who support the school each year by making a gift to the Groton Fund. We are pleased to share that we surpassed our 2017-18 Groton Fund goals and raised $4,157,200. Alumni participation was 49% and parent participation was 99%. These are incredible participation rates among our peers 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.
After a successful day of giving in the fall of 2017, we are thrilled that our 2018 giving day—Give2Groton—is October 16, 2018. It a wonderful community day of giving and all gifts count in form totals for participation as well as dollars raised.
Funds raised through the annual Groton Fund effort support every aspect of our school from academics, athletics, the arts, our beloved faculty, our students, as well as financial support for students who may not otherwise be able to attend.
Please join me and make a gift to the 2018-19 Groton Fund. We need your help to reach our goal of $4,255,000 by June 30, 2019.
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. We could not do the work we do without your loyalty and dedication. Thank you for making an investment in our school by making a gift to the Groton Fund.
