For three days in May we asked Taft alumni, families, and friends to come together to support students facing financial challenges due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The Together for Taft campaign was designed to grow our COVID-19 Financial Impact Fund, which will help keep our student community whole. We are deeply humbled by the response to our call: 333 loyal alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends, helped us not only meet our $300,000 fundraising goal, but to exceed it, thereby unlocking an additional gift of $200,000 from a generous and dedicated group of school trustees. Together—as a community—we raised $592,633 for the COVID-19 Financial Impact Fund in just three days. For this, we thank you.
The campaign featured messages from the Headmaster and alumni, and a video reminder of what it means to be part of the Taft community. You can view those messages, as well as by-class, -state, and -country giving details (and more) here: https://bit.ly/3deSEmA
From the bottom of our hearts and with deep Big Red pride, we thank you for showing your support for Taft during this most unusual time.
