Parents

Andover Fund

One direct way parents can help is to make an annual gift to the Parent Fund, providing critical unrestricted current-use resources for the Academy.

  • Gifts to the Parent Fund support Andover’s programs and people and benefit all Andover students.  
  • Every parent is asked to contribute each year. Grandparents and parents of alumni also participate. 

The Andover Fund, together with the Parent Fund, advances our mission to prepare youth from every quarter for lives of leadership and service.

Some parents additionally choose to support one or more of the Academy’s capital and/or endowment priorities, investing in Andover’s students today and future generations.

Becoming a Parent Fund Committee volunteer offers parents an opportunity to have a positive impact on students and the Academy as a whole. This group of more than 75 parents and grandparents plays an integral role in our annual fundraising efforts by contacting a small group of peers throughout the year to ask for support.
