Annual Giving

The Pomfret Fund impacts every aspect of the Pomfret Experience.

The Pomfret Fund accounts for 12 percent of all operating expenses annually. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we have realized record setting growth over the past several years. With an ambitious strategic plan and enhanced programmatic offerings in the pipeline, the annual giving program continues to be a vital element in the fiscal sustainability of the School.

The Pomfret Fund helps us recruit a talented and diverse student body, and retain the best and the brightest independent school educators. Gifts to the Pomfret Fund also support community traditions like advisee dinners, updates to learning spaces like the du Pont Library, and renovations to social hubs like the dining hall. None of these initiatives would be possible without the Pomfret Fund.

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.
