We want to thank many donors for their support of Farragut families during this time of COVID-19. We are humbled and encouraged by the Farragut community including parents, alumni, faculty, staff, board members, and friends who have donated to the Farragut Fund for financial aid helping Farragut families in need due to the pandemic. We have received over $115,000 in donations since starting the campaign on May 19, 2020. These donations directly impact boarding and day students who otherwise may not be able to return to Farragut in August.

During Alumni Homecoming 2019, Farragut alumnus Daryl Greenberg ‘66S spent some time in Science Department Chair Sari Deitche’s biology classroom. Daryl was fascinated by the enthusiasm the students shared for biology and how much they were learning about genetics. Mrs. Deitche expressed the need for a MiniOne Gel Electrophoresis System to enhance the learning experience in the classroom and Daryl offered to fund it.
