From the Heart

A milestone moment for Board President Amy C. Falls ’82, P’19, ’21

Knowledge & Goodness achieved another milestone moment when Amy C. Falls ’82, P’19, ’21, recently expanded her campaign philanthropy to total more than $20 million.

This record-breaking show of generosity makes her the most prominent woman in Andover’s fundraising history—and reflects a remarkable fidelity to the Academy’s values and vision for the future.

Falls, president of the Board of Trustees and campaign co-chair, and her husband, Hartley Rogers, have long sustained key priorities across the school. Their investments have strengthened financial aid, wellness programming, faculty support, and the Tang Institute. The couple has also bolstered the Addison Gallery of American Art, equity and inclusion initiatives, and capital projects, including the renovation of the Oliver Wendell Holmes Library and preparations for a new music building.

This moment reflects the passion that Amy and Hartley have for educational endeavors.... It is also a statement of profound confidence in our faculty and staff and the work they do to support our mission.

Raynard Kington, MD, PhD, P’24, Head of School

“Hartley and I have made it our mission to proactively support education,” says Falls. “This contribution to Andover is near and dear to my heart because Andover changed my life and continues to change the lives of so many amazing young people.

“We are not a perfect institution—no place is. But what our students and faculty accomplish every day is astounding.”
