THANK YOU TO OUR ANNUAL FUND DONORS
This is an ongoing list of our valued donors. If we have inadvertently left your name off this list or if you would like to contribute to the Annual Fund, please don’t hesitate to contact Victoria Raymer, Director of Alumni and Development (link firstname.lastname@example.org to Victoria’s name).
Every Gift Matters
Every gift to Farragut makes a difference – whether the gift is large or small – it signifies your confidence that Farragut is worthy of your support. Your confidence is reassuring, and your gifts are greatly appreciated.
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 Faragut Fund.
The Farragut Fund
The cornerstone of giving to Farragut
By making a gift each year, alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends help keep Farragut at the forefront of independent education. The Farragut Fund represents Farragut’s commitment to providing the resources needed for an outstanding educational experience –what we like to call, The Farragut Experience!
THANK YOU to everyone who makes a gift to Admiral Farragut Academy, which provides support for every student, every teacher, and every program on campus, and for that, we are grateful. Every gift – whether small or large – helps Farragut to fulfill its mission.
The AFA Foundation
The Foundation was created in 1997 and has acted as the school’s separate 501(c)(3) endowment since. These funds are a permanent investment in the future of Farragut as a commitment to furthering the mission for future generations while providing immediate support through the Foundation’s annual distribution.
100% of alumni gifts are directed to The Foundation (unless otherwise specified by the donor).
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.
Corporate or Foundation Matching
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 and Appreciated Assets
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 (Estate Gifts)
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.
