“The test of worth of any school…is the record of service of her alumni”

—Frank L. Boyden

For Alumni

Deerfield alumni represent one of the most active, generous, and spirited groups of any independent school or college. Each year, alumni participate in Academy life through financial supportvolunteer efforts, attendance at regional events, participation in online communities, and during pentennial pilgrimages back to the Pocumtuck Valley for Reunions.

    Show your spirit and make an immediate impact with a gift to the Green and White—or fund the future with a 1797 level gift. Give to a major project or endowed fund, or plan a gift of your estate. No matter what method you choose, it’s your participation that strengthens Deerfield the most. Make a gift today.
