Anonymous Gift to Cushing to Support Athletics

An anonymous donor recently made a gift of $500,000 to the Academy, restricted to support of Cushing’s athletic program. Remaining competitive is challenging in the changing landscape of athletics and this gift will go a long way to helping the Academy’s teams compete successfully. The vast majority of the gift will be used to support multi-sport boarding student-athletes with financial aid. It will also be used to support coaches and teams and allow for even more effective use of the new training facilities in the Watkins Field House, benefitting all students at the Academy.
The goal of the gift is to encourage the growth and ensure the sustainability of Cushing's athletics program. This includes supporting areas of traditional strength, particularly girls' teams that have seen declining levels of participation in recent years, and ensuring that more students compete for Cushing in multiple sports. Cushing has a proud history of athletics for boys and girls, and we look forward to ensuring this legacy for future generations of Penguins. 

Our donor does not wish to act alone and hopes that members of the extended Cushing community will join him in supporting the Academy. Make a gift now at www.cushing.org/give.
