"A meaningful financial investment in the future of the School in
celebration of your 50th Reunion."
Each April, we are excited to welcome back alumnae, friends, and families for tours of the school, visits with teachers old and new, class visits, parties, alumnae awards, and more! The 50th Reunion is an opportunity to reconnect with Holton-Arms and serves as an occasion for the class to leave a unique legacy to the School, which drives the 50th Reunion Campaign.
As you approach your 50th Reunion, we hope you will reflect fondly on your time at Holton-Arms and consider joining your classmates on campus for Reunion Weekend. We also hope you will consider making a meaningful financial investment in the future of the School in celebration of your 50th Reunion.
In honor of your 50th Reunion, we hope that your gift to Holton-Arms this year will include a gift to the 2018-2019 Holton Fund, as well as a gift to Holton's endowment, which can be paid over five years, allowing you to maximize the impact of your gift to Holton-Arms.
Here are some of the ways you can contribute to Holton in your special Reunion year. Learn about other ways to contribute.
The Holton Fund is the School’s annual fund, which makes up about 10 percent of the School’s operating expenses each year. It is vitally important to the day-to-day operations of the School. Funds are unrestricted, which allows the School to support the areas of greatest need. These most commonly include financial aid, faculty support, athletics, and the arts.
Nothing is more important to a school’s financial health than a strong endowment. Holton’s endowment is our savings account and investment portfolio. Its funds are invested and generate income; each year we spend a portion of those funds to support School priorities and reinvest the rest to sustain growth. Endowments grow in two ways: one, through investment returns, and the other, through new contributions.
A larger endowment will provide both financial security and institutional agility. It will strengthen our fiscal foundation, providing a stable, reliable, ongoing, non-tuition source of support. It will preserve our commitment to quality, enhance the Holton educational experience, and propel us toward new levels of accomplishment. And it will prepare us for a future of change, able to take advantage of opportunities that are impossible to predict.
Planned gifts to Holton-Arms include bequests, life-income arrangements, and other deferred gifts. Making a planned gift to Holton-Arms also qualifies you for membership in the Lamp of Learning Society. For more information, visit the Planned Giving page.
