From Derby’s founding in 1784, our vibrant community has been sustained by generous gifts from generations of families, alumni/ae, faculty, and friends.
Last year, 94% of Derby families, 99% of Faculty and Staff, 100% of Trustees and over 300 Alumni/ae made gifts to the Annual Fund.
I cannot adequately express my gratitude to Derby and the donors who helped make my son’s Derby experience possible. There is no greater gift. The benefits will last a lifetime.
Derby gave me the building blocks for a great academic, and now professional career, and beyond that, a few forging, long-lasting friendships that I can’t picture my life thus far without. Giving to the Annual Fund is such an easy way to give back to the place that was home to my brother and I for over seven years. I’m creating a legacy, and my gift and the gifts of others provide a range of opportunities for students that may not have even existed when I was at Derby.
