Dear Members of the Loomis Chaffee Community,

Once again, we want to thank our extraordinary community of alumni, parents, and friends for your generosity to Loomis Chaffee. The 2019-20 fundraising year was a notable success despite challenging and unprecedented times. 

Please review this year’s Annual Report at your convenience. The online publication offers you a chance to learn about the various priorities for which we raised funds as well as to view lists of supporters by alumni class, leadership giving levels, and other important categories of our program like the John Metcalf Taylor Society. 

Thanks to you, we raised $12,382,825 in total voluntary support, which is among our top eleven annual performances ever. The funds represented within include the crucial Annual Fund for which we reached $4,220,149, capital and endowment fundraising for which we secured $7,268,011 in gifts, and various other restricted commitments totaling $894,665. Every dollar raised strengthens our ability to enroll exceptional students, to retain the best and brightest faculty, to maintain and enhance The Island campus, and – ultimately – to realize the Founders’ vision for this great school.

I am thrilled to share this report with you as a moment for our community to come together and feel proud. Thank you again for your loyal support. Go Pelicans!
