It Starts With Avon


The Campaign for Avon is $50 million and counting! 

We’re asking and you’re answering - answering the call to believe, as we do, in today’s Avonians. Thank you.


We are A-V-O-N!

I am thrilled to announce that Sage and Tony Minella '94 brought the campaign home, and we have officially reached our $50 million Inspiring Boys, Building Men campaign goal! It is with great pride that we are now $50 million and counting as we enter the last eight weeks of our campaign, which officially closes on December 31, 2019.

To the network of Avonians who have supported our most ambitious campaign to date: our boys thank you, our entire Avon community thanks you, and future Avonians thank you. Your generosity will benefit the boys for years to come.

The Inspiring Boys, Building Men campaign launched publicly last September and supports our unwavering commitment to the people, programs, and campus that are the heart of the Avon experience.

"The purpose of this campaign–and the core of my vision for Avon–is not just to hit a goal, but to maintain great traditions while innovating for today's student," Headmaster Jim Detora said.

Gifts have already made a profound impact on our campus by developing our STEM program, revitalizing the Nimrod Cabin, celebrating the arts in our modern Ordway Art Gallery, renovating the Jennings Fairchild Rink, and building a state-of-the-art kitchen and servery inside the iconic Riddle Refectory. Gifts are also allowing us to make significant strides with our endowment, which fortifies financial strength for scholarships as well as compensation for hiring and retaining our exceptional faculty.

For those who have not given, there's still time to stand up and be counted for the campaign!

Celebrating $50 million and counting with the boys!

Community makes us stronger.

The future starts today.

The future starts with Avon.
