About

Groton is hosting our seventh Give2Groton community event—GIVE 2 WHAT YOU LOVE.

Beginning Thursday, October 13 and concluding as students leave for Fall Long Weekend at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, October 14, we are asking our entire community, including alumni, parents, and friends of the school, to GIVE 2 WHAT YOU LOVE most about Groton.

Support the area of Groton that was most impactful for you, as a student, or to your child. Was it a particular program, faculty member, or coach? If you can’t decide you can always direct your gift to the “greatest need” which allows the school to be flexible and pivot when necessary, supporting programs that are the current top priority.

With your gift you can support Academics, Arts, Athletics, Diversity & Inclusion, Faculty, Financial Aid/GRAIN 2.0, Student Life, or Greatest Need, and/or honor a teacher, coach, advisor, dorm head, or friend.

We are looking for 377 gifts from alumni, parents, and friends of Groton - one for each current Groton student. To encourage early giving to the Groton Fund this fall, when we reach this goal an anonymous group of trustees will contribute an additional $100,000.

An anonymous donor contributed $25,000 so each form could direct $5,000 to the area of the school they care about most! But first, students had to follow the clues:

2023: Fred Gwynne '42, Alexandra Paul '81, and Bill Camp '82 would have enjoyed practicing here (it was built after they graduated).

2024:  Louis Auchincloss '35, David Cleveland '70, Ben Coes '85, and Curtis Sittenfeld '94 would be thrilled to see their names in this room.

2025: Candace Brown Nelson '91, Merrill Stubbs Dorman '95, and Ned Claflin '99 might have enjoyed an FSA in this building. 

2026: The names of Emory Clark ’56, Isabelle Kinsolving Farrar '98, and Alex Karowski ’08 hang in this building. Bonus: what two distinguished groups are they a part of?

2027: FDR's name is carved in this building.


UPDATE: all the zebras have been located!
