About

The theme of this year’s day of giving is “Help the other fella!”

As Cardigan founder Bill Brewster and Coach Jim Marrion reminded us, serving others is the Cardigan Way. This year when you make a gift, we encourage you to share a note of gratitude for the other fella who helped you make the most of your time on The Point. Whether your words honor others' service or simply aim to uplift, we will pass on your message and make sure your former teacher, coach, or friend knows about the gift made in their honor.

Your gift not only honors the people who helped you. You too are helping the other fella' by supporting our Annual Fund. All gifts made today enhance Cardigan's ability to do the following:

Open our Doors: The Annual Fund increases our ability to provide more financial aid to deserving boys and families from all backgrounds. 

Grow and Inspire: The Annual Fund supports our faculty as they pursue ongoing professional development as educators—gaining experience which they bring back into the classroom.

Focus on the goal: The Annual Fund supports the day-to-day operations of Cardigan, establishing consistency and allowing us to be solely focused on our top priority—the education of middle school boys. 

Thank you! Please spread the word to your classmates and keep an eye on this page for updates and a chance to win prizes throughout the day.

For any questions, please reach out to Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations Jer Shipman ’00 at jshipman@cardigan.org.

Blowing past our goal!

Faculty member Doug Clark went out to clean up the trails with a leaf blower this afternoon. The equipment he used was made possible through the Annual Fund—just one example of how your generosity supports our exceptional programs like Mountain Biking. 


Thank you all so much for an amazing day. Let's keep going!
