About


If 1,000 donors give to the Annual Fund on Thursday, February 25, a generous alumna from the Class of 2001 will generously contribute $100,000 to the school’s endowment for financial aid.

Your Annual Fund gift will make an immediate impact on the lives of our students and faculty, and it will help unlock a gift to the endowment that will provide opportunities for students far into the future.


"I was inspired to make this gift in honor of my parents, who prioritized a Loomis Chaffee education for my brother and me.  Loomis was the greatest gift, instilling strong critical thinking skills, a curiosity of the world, and a joy of learning that I value every day. The school taught me the value of hard work and perseverance. It helped to shape me into a well-rounded individual and introduced me to life-long friends. I am very grateful for the opportunity and want to give the gift of Loomis Chaffee to the next generation.“ – A day alumna from the Class of 2001

We've surpassed 600 gifts!

Every gift today supports the Loomis Chaffee Annual Fund. While the Annual Fund is always an important resource for our school, it has been especially critical during the past year, enabling us to be flexible and resilient in the face of unexpected challenges.
