Honor the Past, Create the Future: TA Day of Giving

On May 27, 2022 Thetford Academy will host our fifth annual Day of Giving, the largest fundraising event of the school year. This year’s theme, “Honor the Past, Create the Future” is a celebration of TA’s 200+ years of history and the strong connection between the past, the present, and the future of TA. Every generation of Thetford Academy students, faculty, alumni, parents, and friends has played a crucial role in TA’s success – creating a foundation of excellence, community, and time-honored traditions.

We are excited this year to announce a TA Day of Giving challenge from the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation. The Byrne Foundation has supported TA’s Day of Giving since its inception in 2017 – and in 2022, they want to do more: If 50 alumni donors make a gift toward our Day of Giving campaign, the Byrne Foundation will give $5,000 in support for Thetford Academy. And if we reach 100 gifts overall, we’ll unlock $10,000 for TA! With your support, we know we can reach these goals.

Why give to TA? Your gift helps Thetford Academy provide students with exceptional academic, extracurricular, and athletic opportunities. It ensures we can go above and beyond in individualizing and supporting each student’s TA experience to help them reach their personal goals. Every gift to TA helps us create a school like no other – a strong, supportive, and inclusive community where every student can find their path.

Join us today with your support for Thetford Academy’s Day of Giving. Your gift makes a difference to our students, our families, and our future. Make your gift today and be counted toward TA’s 2022 Day of Giving.
