The Campaign for Avon Old Farms School
Brick for brick, Avon Old Farms was constructed to shape and fortify the minds and hearts of boys. For nearly a century, we have embraced what it means to be a boy; and along the way, we have redefined what it means to be a man. We stand ready to forge on to our next challenge ...to lead generations of men into a solid future—for Avon, for our communities, for the world.
A PROMISE TO SECURE OUR FUTURE
Our boys become exceptional men.
Our Goal is to raise $50 million by 2019.
To date, we have raised $20 million toward our $50 million goal. The largest commitment is $4 million from John Smith P'14.
MODERNIZING WINGED BEAVER TERRITORY
By investing in our people, enhancing our campus and facilities, and building a stronger financial foundation, this campaign will impact our school profoundly for decades to come.
