• Cushing


Since Cushing Academy's founding in 1865, gifts have made it possible for students to receive an exemplary education. Thomas Parkman Cushing laid a foundation for the school with his original bequest, and hundreds of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends have supported his vision in the years since by making gifts of their own. 

There are many ways to support Cushing Academy. For example:
  • You could support the Cushing Academy Annual Fund. The school's annual fund provides operating expenses—for everything from salaries to classroom supplies, financial aid to hands-on learning experiences. Learn more
  • Your gift could expand our endowment. Cushing's endowment is a kind of savings account for the school. Donors can support the endowment with any size gift. Learn more.
  • You can help us with capital projectsAs you might imagine there are practically endless building projects for a campus like Cushing's. We need to maintain the structures that already exists—including our many antique buildings—as well as build new structures to meet the needs of our diverse campus community. Learn more.
  • You can make a gift right now or you can remember Cushing in your will. Learn more about the ways you can support the Academy
