"We stand here on the shoulders of those founders, those
visionaries, those people who willed this school into existence and
then sustained its lifeblood with principled conviction." Tom
Davis '71 - 2012 Founders Day Speech
The Annual Fund and its partner, the Dinner Auction, are the
major sources of financial support for creating student
opportunity. Whether it is capital items, program needs, endowment,
or scholarships, the generous support of the Brookfield Academy
community ensures that students are ready for future
In the spirit of ensuring a strong future, this year's 50th
Anniversary Annual Fund appeal is focused on providing support for
the Five Star Legacy Endowment. The endowment, started in 2002, was
established as part of a long-range plan to ensure the financial
stability of the school. Revenue from the endowment provides
financial support for academic programs, athletics, faculty
development, fine arts, and scholarships.
Unlike the traditional Annual Fund drive, with its emphasis on
capital projects and improvements, this drive focuses on people and
programs essential to carrying on the tradition of excellence with
which the Academy is clearly identified. The Annual Fund will also
continue to support capital improvements. Capital improvements
fulfill the needs in technology, fine arts, and athletics. You may
designate the direction of your gift.
