On Monday, February 5, 2018, the Thayer community will come together to celebrate an annual tradition of honoring Thayer Academy’s founder, Sylvanus Thayer. This celebration includes a one-day campaign for the Thayer Academy Annual Giving Campaign. During this day of giving, we honor the key principles that inspired Sylvanus Thayer and remain at the forefront today: generosity, passion for learning, and insistence on high standards.
This year, we have been challenged by an anonymous donor to inspire at least 1,000 members of the Thayer community to give. For each donor who makes a gift, of any amount, our donor will make a $50 donation, up to a maximum of $50,000.
Thayer's Annual Fund is the result of generous parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and other friends of the school who make donations of all sizes to support the annual operations of the Academy. This support provides for tuition assistance, faculty salaries, and the school's strong academic, arts, and athletics programs.
