Reason To Give

Your support makes the Pomfret Experience possible.

When you give to Pomfret, you are investing in the people, programs, and places that make Pomfret one of the best small independent schools in the nation. Your contribution makes it possible for our students to ask questions, tell stories, solve problems, make art, conduct experiments, build connections, test limits, try new things, have fun, grow, mature. When you give to Pomfret, you are investing in the success and achievement of our students and teachers, today, and for the rest of their lives.


The People

Your gift allows us to recruit and retain the best teachers and the brightest students.

The Programs

Distinctive programs and unique learning opportunities are made possible by your support.

The Place

Your gift allows us to build and maintain a vibrant campus infrastructure.

The Pomfret Experience is only possible because of our small size, and the quality of the experience it offers. But being a small school yields a limited amount of tuition income, which covers only 70 percent of the cost of a Pomfret education. To keep tuition affordable, to hire and retain great teachers, build new buildings, and recruit a talented and diverse student body, we rely on the contributions of philanthropists like you. You make the Pomfret Experience possible.


"Pomfret was my sanctuary. It is where I experienced community, academic challenge, and immersion in athletics and music. Through the years, my admiration for this living, breathing community has only increased. I contribute financially to Pomfret out of deep gratitude for how they continue to form and mold their students with the goal of being the best persons they were created to be."
