About


The Power of One

It starts with one person, then another, then another. And each time someone raises their hand, the impact grows. Soon three becomes ten, ten becomes a hundred, and a hundred becomes a thousand. That is the Power of One. 

On Tuesday, April 27, we are asking you to join students, teachers, parents, trustees, alumni, and friends as we seek to break the single-day record for the most donors to Pomfret in 24 hours. Your contribution  — multiplied by the contributions of Griffins from across the globe — will directly support the people, programs, and places that make Pomfret one of the best small independent schools in the country. This year, help us make Day of Giving an exponential success. Be the one.

Power of One (Thousand Four Hundred Sixty... and Counting!)


Once again we are blown away by the support of our Pomfret Community! The Pomfret Experience is built on the individuals who collectively come together to change lives. It takes everyone, and only one, to make a difference at Pomfret and you have shown us the Power Of One. Thank you all for giving, sharing and celebrating together today for the biggest Pomfret celebration, ever. We are heading to bed here on the East Coast with 1,460 donors but if you West Coasters want to keep the fun going we wont stop you!
