About


Philanthropy Day is a 24-hour fundraising event during which the Loomis Chaffee community is invited to come together and showcase its incredible strength and spirit by making gifts to the Annual Fund. Since its inception, more than $3 million has been raised from more than 10,000 Philanthropy Day gifts!


If 1,250 donors give to the Annual Fund on February 24, Mary Bucksbaum Scanlan ’87 will generously contribute $125,000 to support our students, faculty, and staff.

Your participation will make an immediate impact on every aspect of life at Loomis Chaffee from classroom and experiential learning to faculty resources, residential life, arts, and athletics. Every gift, regardless of size, truly does make a difference. Participation is what matters.

Mission Accomplished!

WE DID IT!!! 

Thank you to all our Loomis Chaffee Champions who helped us reach this milestone achievement and unlock the $125,000 gift. We're standing on the center podium because of you.

While we've reached our goal, let's keep it going... if you haven't made your gift yet, there's still time!

We're SO "Barry" Close

With less than 75 gifts to go, we're so "Barry" close to reaching our goal. If you know Mr. Moran, he could make that number disappear before our very eyes!

Time is running out and 1,250 is so close!

Closing in on the target...

Our first-ever πŸ’ͺEmPOWERment HourπŸ’ͺ was a great success and the boost we needed as our young alumni (2000-2021) have 'slid' us over the 1,000 gift mark. 1,250 is within reach!

BONUS TIME... 15 minutes

We've extended πŸ’ͺEmPOWERment HourπŸ’ͺ another 15 minutes until 9:15pm (EST)... getting really close to that full $5,000 match. KUOdos to our young Pelicans!

Class of 2023

More KUOdos, this time to the Class of 2023 parents who reached their 50 gift goal and unlocked a $25,000 challenge gift. If you haven't made your gift yet, you can still have an impact to help us reach our overall goal of 1,250.

Classes of 2024 and 2025

KUOdos to the parents from the Classes of 2024 and 2025 who reached their respective challenge goals and unlocked a $25,000 (2024) and $30,000 (2025) gift. We still have work to do to reach our overall challenge goal, so let's keep it going!

If you are a 2024 or 2025 parent and haven't made your own gift yet, think about leveraging your own gift and offering a NEW match or challenge to further incentivize your fellow parents!
