A Letter from

Dear Friends and Members of the Hockaday Community,

Despite the many challenges associated with the pandemic, I am pleased to report that Hockaday remains strong thanks to the unwavering support of our generous and dedicated community and friends. Gifts of all sizes from across all constituencies play a critical role in maintaining Hockaday’s strong financial position and in enabling the School to continue to provide an extraordinary education to its students.

Each year, we pause to recognize the financial support provided by Hockaday’s incredible community through the Annual Report of Gifts. Once again, the generosity of Hockaday families, alumnae, trustees, and friends during Fiscal Year 2021 is awe inspiring. The steadfast support of our generous donors has a marked effect on our School, both today and in the future.

As you will read in the Annual Report of Gifts, our community joined together in support of the School’s current operating needs by making gifts to the Annual Fund. Additionally, with Hockaday’s future in mind, new endowment funds were created, and thoughtful planned gifts were crafted to support Hockaday’s long-term sustainability. We have also begun to raise funds to support the implementation of early phases of Hockaday’s new Land Use Plan focused on Athletics and Wellness.

Our community’s resounding support of our School allows us to continue to provide the unparalleled educational experience to each and every Hockadaisy. For this, we are deeply grateful.

Thank you for believing in our mission and in our School and for your generous contributions of time, talent, and resources to enhance the experience and education of each student. The community’s collective dedication to the growth and development of Hockaday’s girls and young women is extraordinary.

With gratitude,

Director of Development and Strategic Initiatives
