About

It's PA Giving Day! That special time when our worldwide community rallies together—and supports what we love most about Andover.


Here are all the details:

Our goal is 1,974 donors. When we hit it, a bonus $100,000 will be released for an extra boost to the Andover Fund, thanks to a generous anonymous donor.

And why 1,974? To celebrate 50 years of coeducation at Andover, marking the anniversary of Abbot Academy and Phillips Academy becoming a singular institution!
 
We have meaningful matches. There are more than 20 matching gift opportunities to explore—including those just for families, the Addison Gallery, the Peabody Institute, Abbot Academy alumnae, classes, athletics, and more. Each multiplies the power of your donation right now. 

Every gift matters. Because when you choose what you love, your favorite program, affinity, or area of Andover directly benefits from your participation. 

Andover has heart! And no day embodies this spirit more than PA Giving Day. Thank you!

Thank you, donors!

On behalf of all our students, faculty, and staff, we’d like to thank each and every PA Giving Day donor. We rallied together and made a collective difference far beyond what any one of us could do alone. This is non sibi spirit and Andover in action.

Please look for a special message from our head of school later this week. In the meantime, please know we’re most grateful for you!

There's still time to make your impact!

It’s morning on Andover Hill…and we’re ready to make the most of the day! We hope you’ll don a little (PA or Abbot!) blue today and give back for our students. They need your support—and PA Giving Day offers you plenty of opportunities to maximize your impact with our matches and $100K challenge!

Need a reason to give? Here’s three!


Here are our top three reasons why today is the perfect opportunity to donate:

1) There are still meaningful matches available to multiply your impact.

2) Every gift gets us closer to our 1,974-donor goal and an extra $100,000 for key campus priorities.

3) Like all annual donations, your gift will be put to immediate use to fill the school’s yearly funding gap and ensure our students have all they need to succeed.

Thank you for joining this special day of giving back!
