Dear Members of the Loomis Chaffee Community,
Looking back on the 2021–22 academic year, I feel a deep sense of pride and gratitude for all that this community has achieved to strengthen our school in recent years. Together we have continued to have tremendous success each year, with our visibility and reputation as one of the best schools in this country and the world on the rise. Loomis Chaffee is a beacon for an unparalleled education, and our upward trajectory would not be possible without your support and generosity.
Among the brightest moments, which you will glean from this Annual Report, is that Loomis Chaffee raised $12,655,689 in total voluntary support between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. The Annual Fund had its third-best year ever. Dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers raised $4,569,230 in unrestricted gifts; various current restricted commitments brought $988,064 to the school; and donors contributed $7,098,395 in capital and endowment giving. This impressive result continues the streak of total giving above $11.5 million annually for the last ten years.
Each and every gift made has joined with thousands of others to have a transformative impact on the school. The highlights and lists within the Annual Fund, Leadership, and Planned Giving sections of this report note the importance of each category and where the emerging needs of the school lie.
As we enter the final year of Sheila Culbert’s remarkable tenure, during which I expect to continue our excellent fundraising success, I am honored to share this publication that showcases your collective power and impact on our Island community. Go Pelicans!
Thank you again for your continuing support and best wishes always,
Associate Head for External Relations
