Each year, families of the senior class have an opportunity to make a gift to Waynflete in celebration of their child’s journey to graduation.
Parents, grandparents, and extended family members find that the Senior Gift is a wonderful way to show gratitude for the lifelong gift of a Waynflete education.
The Senior Gift encourages new and increased support of the School through our Waynflete Fund. When you give to the Waynflete Fund, you are strengthening educational programs, the curriculum, and extracurricular activities. You are investing directly in the Waynflete experience and honoring the great work of exceptional teachers.
Our hope is that each senior family will make a gift before June 30, 2021.
A message from our 2021 Senior Gift Co-Chairs
Kate Burnham and Nate Clark, P ’18, ’21
We hope you and your families are safe and well. We are incredibly grateful to the faculty, staff, and leadership team who have been working tirelessly to meet the needs of our students and families in what has been one of the most challenging years the school and our community have ever experienced.
As we approach the midpoint of the year, it is hard to believe that we will soon be celebrating the graduating Class of 2021. We watched our son, Andrew, graduate three years ago, and it is with mixed emotions that we look forward to the moment our daughter, Eliza, walks across the stage in June. We find ourselves reflecting on the meaningful relationships our children made with their teachers, advisors, coaches, and staff, and savoring the memories of the experiences that they enjoyed as part of the warm, caring, and supportive Waynflete community.
After sixteen years as part of this amazing community, we feel a sense of obligation to give back and express our gratitude to the school—and we cannot imagine a better way to do that than to chair the Senior Gift Committee. We are thrilled to be able to show our appreciation for Waynflete by giving a gift in honor of the Class of 2021, and we hope you will join us in supporting our future Flyers!
