WE DID IT!


Dear Cardigan Community, 

Thank you all for your support on this record-breaking day for Cardigan! We just passed the 400 donor mark, but we're not quite finished. The alumni class challenge isn't over, and we're still working to make our most successful day of giving even greater. 

Everything you have given today goes directly to the Annual Fund, which supports all aspects of the day to day operations of our school. After today, we are in a wonderful position to finish the 2022 school year on a high note.

Please keep an eye out for a more complete thank you message tomorrow. For now, please know how incredibly grateful we are for all of you. 


Thank you and goodnight from The Point,
Jer Shipman '00
