Campaign Impact

Your support for the Campaign for Cardigan 2020 enables the School to build upon programmatic strengths, improve campus facilities, and enhance community life. Whether through gifts to endowment or to capital projects, Campaign donors are helping us reach long-term strategic goals—a key reason that Cardigan leads middle school education for boys.

In 2009, the Campaign set a goal of raising $50 million in support of the School’s strategic objectives. We are proud that, as of June 30, 2018, you have helped us raise more than $49 million for Cardigan. Your remarkable support has paved the way for new possibilities, and motivates us to work even harder toward strengthening our School.


Financial sustainability is crucial for Cardigan, and raising funds for endowment is an important component of our Campaign. Since 2009, Cardigan’s endowment has seen an increase of $9.8 million. To support long-term stability and achieve our strategic goals, we continue to focus on raising endowment for all areas of school life. We are pleased to report that fundraising efforts for capital projects such as Hayward Hall, Clark-Morgan Hall, and McCusker Hall also incorporate endowment components to support each facility’s long-term sustainability and maintenance.
