Taft is a school built on excellence. For more than 125 years, our graduates have applied the lessons they learned at Taft to effecting change in their communities and around the world. Our challenge now, as it has always been, is to sustain excellence for the coming generations—to continue to grow our academic and extracurricular programs to meet the ever-changing demands of an ever-changing and increasingly global community; to hire talented faculty members, who are not only experts in their fields, but exceptional teachers and role models, and who bring unparalleled passion and dedication to all that they do; to preserve and enhance our historic campus, surely one of the most beautiful in the nation; and to ensure, always, that the best and the brightest students from across the globe and from all walks of life can enroll here, enriching the lives of all Taft students.
Taft has been built, brick by brick, student by student, through the collective generosity of generations. Our strong tradition of giving—of gifts from alumni, parents, faculty, and friends—allows us to continue our long tradition of excellence. Every gift of every size supports the important work we do today, while strengthening our legacy for tomorrow.
Keep in touch with fellow alumni, catch up on reunion gatherings, and stay on top of all things Taft.
The extraordinary generosity of our alumni has made us who we are, and will define what we become.
In addition to the need for a robust annual fund, Taft also relies on gifts for ongoing projects, including financial aid, support of faculty, and improvements to facilities.
A part of the Annual Fund, the Parents’ Fund is a giving initiative driven by the parents of our current students.
With thoughtful planning, you can create win-win solutions for you and for Taft.
