About

Once a Fessy Bear, always a Fessy Bear 🐻


No matter your connection to Fessenden or how much time has passed since you've been on campus, you're a Fessy Bear forever. On May 15, we will celebrate all bears around the world 🌏, and what it means to be part of the Fessenden family. Our goal is to reach 541 gifts 🎁 on this ONE day to honor every one of our current students. 

Donations made on the Day of Giving support the Annual Fund and range in size from $5 to $50,000. Your participation is essential providing resources to the program that define the exceptional quality of education at Fessenden.

Updated Overall Parent Participation Chart 🐻 🎁 🥳

Every year our goal is to reach 100% parent giving to the Annual Fund in all grades. Today, parent participation has increased tremendously, with few grades so close to 100%! 


Be sure to include your sons' class year in your "Parent" affiliation to be included in the Donor Leaderboard and so we can add your participation to this chart! 


Thank you to our parent community for being so generous throughout the year, and for many of you making second gifts today!
