Class of 2016 Parents’ Gift Raises Record-Breaking $1.1 Million At the Senior Farewell Dinner in May, Senior Parents’ Gift Co-Chairs David and Jocelyn Sand P’16 and Ken and Vicky Lang P’16, ’18, ’20, ’22, took to the stage to announce the results of senior parents’ generosity over the past year. The check presented to Head of School Rebecca T. Upham represented the cumulative gifts of 99 percent of parents in the class, and set a new record for a Senior Parents’ Gift with a total of $1,135,112 raised by the close of the fiscal year on June 30. Senior parents responded generously and enthusiastically to the outreach of a dedicated group of parent volunteers in support of this year’s class project: the establishment of the Class of 2016 Supplemental Financial Aid Fund. This Fund will support the non-tuition portion of the School’s financial aid budget by covering such expenses as books, transportation to and from school, tutoring and academic support, computers, field trips, travel grants, summer opportunities, and other miscellaneous expenses. Of the total class gift, $692,854 was allocated to the 2016 Supplemental Financial Aid Fund, with an additional $257,500 received from senior parents for other endowment funds and capital projects, and $174,758 for The BB&N Fund. Continuing a tradition set by previous senior parent classes, this year’s Senior Parents’ Gift Program also honored 60 different faculty, coaches, and staff for the special role they played during the senior’s time at BB&N.
