Campaign to Honor the Class of 2015


Reimagining the Boyden Library

For more than forty years, the families of each graduating class have come together to fund a legacy project in honor of their children. During the summer of 2014, Deerfield’s Board of Trustees approved a $10 million renovation of the Boyden Library as a signature project of Deerfield’s emerging campus master plan. The Campaign to Honor the Class of 2015 will provide funding for an essential component of the Boyden Library renovation: new space for Deerfield’s Office of College Advising.

The renovated Boyden Library will bring together, under one roof, the offices of the Academic Dean and Academic Support, the Center for Service and Global Citizenship, the Innovation Lab, and College Advising. This will become a building that promotes interdisciplinary, collaborative learning as students engage in real-world challenges, and will recenter the academic hub on campus, both promoting and reflecting Deerfield’s heritage of academic excellence. The new Office of College Advising will occupy a wing of the 2nd floor, providing centralized offices for an expanded group of college advisors, additional group meeting space, and work/research desks for students.

The Academy welcomes your support for this transformational project. Commitments to the Campaign to Honor the Class of 2015 may be paid in over a 3-year to 5-year period, so we ask families to please consider a gift that is a multiple of their previous giving in support of the Academy. Please contact Suzanne Berger at, 413-774-1587, or Diane Lively at, 413-774-1463, for more information, or to make your gift. Commitments may be paid over a period of 3 to 5 years.
