Each year, the Annual Fund makes a significant contribution to the Academy's operating budget by supporting the many programs that add to the excellence of a Thayer education. Many parents, alumni, students, and parents of alumni help by personally contacting donors to answer questions and ask for support. As always, the goal is full participation from all members of the Thayer community before the end of the fiscal year on June 30.
The General's Council
The General's Council was established in 1997 to recognize leadership donors who make annual gifts of $1,877 or more to Thayer Academy. The General's Council includes alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends whose generosity makes a significant impact on the quality of Thayer, its students, and its programs. Each year the Board of Trustees honors these leadership donors at the General's Council Reception. Today, more than 85 percent of the money contributed to the Annual Fund comes from leadership donors. Your gift is important.
