Ways You Can Give

The Farragut Fund, capital campaigns, memorials and matching gifts are just a few of the ways you can support Farragut financially.

Each year we need 100% participation from our parents, board members, faculty, staff, and friends of Farragut to give to the Farragut Fund.

The Farragut Fund covers the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a student at Admiral Farragut Academy. Like all independent schools, our budget is set so that tuition covers about 90% of our expenses. The 10% balance of our needed income to enhance the educational experience of each student comes from the Farragut Fund.

Funds raised are used to enrich our faculty and staff needs and compensation and to cover facility expenses as well as signature programs at the school such as STEM, scuba, arts, aviation and new curriculum.

At 20,000 square feet, the new multi-use building will feature an innovative design that highlights the proud heritage of Farragut, striking a balance between traditional and contemporary architecture in a manner that respects Farragut’s history and charm. The new building will feature an auditorium, administrative offices, and classrooms. The New Building Campaign has already made significant progress toward its fundraising goal of $4.0 million.

The mission of the Farragut Family Association (FFA) is to promote family-to-family engagement and school spirit at Admiral Farragut Academy by involvement in athletics, campus events, and fundraising initiatives. Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities are available and encouraged. For more information, click here.

Often a donors can make in-kind gifts to Farragut of goods, services or equipment. Contact the Alumni and Development Office to confirm the nature of your gift and its intended use. Farragut will provide confirmation of receipt of such gifts. It is the responsibility of the donor to indicate the value of such contributions.

Matching Gifts, also known as a matching fund or matching donation is a charitable gift made toward a non-profit organization by a matching donor (e.g., an employer) under the provision that an original donor (e.g., an employee) first makes a gift toward that organization.

Guidelines for such gifts vary from company to company. Specific questions regarding matching gifts should be directed to the donor’s employer Human Resource office.

Gifts of Securities provide a significant savings for the donor by avoiding capital gains taxes, while offering a good degree of tax deductibility. If you are interested in making a gift of appreciated stocks or bonds or gifting real property (real estate, a boat, a car or other tangible assets) please contact the Development Office for further directions for this type of transaction.

The Heritage Society is a society of donors who have bequeathed estate gifts to Admiral Farragut Academy. Heritage Society membership indicates that Admiral Farragut Academy and/or the Foundation is included in the estate giving plans of a donor. Some members will give through a simple will bequest, transfer the ownership of life insurance, or elect to use one of the many options available through various trust arrangements.

The method of giving is not as important as the decision to give. Our ability to continue to affect and impact each future generation is dependent upon the direct involvement of those who understand and value the Farragut Experience.
