2018-19 Annual Report | Annual Fund

This was a truly great year of growth for the Annual Fund at Solebury. The Annual Fund provides critical operating support that is seamlessly woven into every day life at Solebury School. A successful Annual Fund is critical for Solebury to continue to thrive. In FY19, we saw so many of our alumni, parents, and students step up and contribute that we closed the year exceeding our annual fund goal by nearly 20%. As a community, we did what we do best: join together and create lasting, impactful changes for current and future generations of Soleburians.

This year, we launched a new initiative for giving at Solebury School. Our first-ever giving day in May put our power for good on full display. In 24 hours, Solebury School supporters contributed $50,000 as part of the Our Solebury Giving Day 2019 campaign. With a generous challenge gift by alum and board member Jay Abbe '59, we kicked off the campaign in the right direction—high—and its effect was immediate. The power of philanthropy was on full display throughout the day and night as his generosity inspired donors throughout our community to contribute and create their own challenges as well. 

The funds we inspired each other to give that day were absolutely critical to meeting, and exceeding, our annual fund goal for the year. However, the stronger bonds of community created that day was the true success story for our Solebury. 

Solebury School recognizes how fortunate we are to have so many thoughtful, purposeful donors throughout the decades. The cumulative commitment of all levels of donor support, from the 1925 Society to our Young Alumni Society, ensures the many essential functions of our special campus remain in forward motion. From mindfully utilized departmental budget support, to the extensive and ongoing maintenance of all our new and revered indoor and outdoor spaces, to an ever expanding weekend community event calendar welcoming all students, we are so very thankful to each and every one of our supporters of the Annual Fund.
