Class of 1995 25th Reunion Gift

This campaign ended on May 01, 2021, but you can still make a gift to John Burroughs School by clicking here!

In honor of our 25th reunion we would like to give back to Burroughs with a class gift. All of you remember Susie Wilson, the loving face of Burroughs, who welcomed us every day in the front office. Mrs. Wilson retired last year after 32 years to spend more time with her 104 year old mother. With genuine warmth, she connected and cared for people, from current or prospective students to the president of the Parents Council to a long-out-of-touch alum to the mail carrier. We all benefited from her enthusiastic encouragement, supporting hug and excused pink slip when running late. A scholarship was established in her name and as a class we can grow that scholarship together. Twenty-six percent of students – 167 total – are on financial aid with families requesting more support during this uncertain healthcare climate. Tuition aid, more than $3.8 million this year, is extremely important in keeping within the school’s mission of maintaining a diverse and equitable student body.

This is a unique appeal for your charitable support of Burroughs. We gently request that you consider this gift in addition to what you may already contribute to the Burroughs Annual Fund. Alumni support of the Annual Fund provides essential operating support, and we do not want to erode that base of funding for Burroughs.

We know that the class of 1995 will come together and show our Bomber pride!

Please contact one of us with any questions!
