The Amici Fund raised more than $4 million for the second year in a row, with more than 61 percent of solicitable alumni and 95 percent of parents participating. This is the eighth consecutive year that alumni participation has exceeded 60 percent. Such strong results come from deep and broad contributions across the alumni, parent, and grandparent community, but several classes had particularly outstanding years.

Some of our most distinguished Tigers were also the most comprehensive, with the classes of 1948 and 1951 each reaching 100 percent participation. Those alumni were joined by the parents of the classes of 2025 and 2026, who also reached 100 percent support. The class of 1963, led by Bill Caler, gave a school-high $143,265; this was the ninth consecutive year the class has contributed at least $100,000.

As they celebrated their twenty-fifth reunion, the class of 1998 gave more than $122,000. This incredible show of support exceeded the group’s prior record by more than one and a half times. John Lipe was tireless in his work to organize the class.

Inspired by challenge gifts from Bryan Plater and Ned Valentine, the class of 1983 had the third-highest class contribution at $96,899 as they celebrated their fortieth reunion.

A number of other classes set or matched class records for dollars contributed, including 1964, 1988, 1997, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2017, and 2019.

Also setting or matching records for participation were the classes of 1959, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1982, 1985, and 1992.

The Amici Fund achieves such outstanding results each year thanks to the tireless efforts of hundreds of alumni and parent volunteers. The fund — and the people who give to it so generously and consistently — are a model that schools and universities across the country seek to emulate. The Amici Fund sustains the experience of boys here now thanks to thousands of loyal parents and alumni.
