The Farragut Day of Giving will officially begin at 12:01 AM (EST), Tuesday, November 12, 2019. This 24-hour event will unite Admiral Farragut Academy alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, and friends in the common goal of showing their Farragut Pride and raising funds for the Farragut Fund and AFA Foundation.
A new concept this year, the Farragut Day of Giving is similar to single-day events conducted by many independent schools, colleges, and universities across the country. The Farragut Day of Giving is designed to replace multiple requests for funds throughout the year and unite on one day with one mission to support our school.
Funds raised provide the base of support for enriched academic, art, and athletic programs, financial assistance, teacher professional development, classroom needs, technology upgrades, facilities, and many more opportunities that make up the Farragut experience.
Staff and student volunteers will make and receive calls during the Farragut Day of Giving. They will also be personalizing and signing thank you cards for donors, recording messages of thanks, and sharing testimonial videos on social media. We invite you to join the conversation and share your Farragut story and pride. (Add social media links)
Our goal is to focus on the number of donations received rather than the total amount raised. Donations can be made online at farragut.org/giving or by phone at 727-343-3678. People may contribute online early at farragut.org/giving and put the code “DOG” written in the memo box to be counted as part of the Day of Giving (DOG). Unless otherwise specified, donations from alumni will support the AFA Foundation Founders’ Fund and gifts from parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, students, and friends will benefit the Farragut Fund. You may call the Farragut Development Office at 727-384-5500 ext 278 with further questions.
