Cushing Academy's Sweet 16 is a competition among the school's 16 youngest classes (2001-2016) to see who can take the crown for the most participation in the Cushing Academy Annual Fund. 

We know you love Cushing. We know your time here had quite an impact on you. We'd like you to pay that forward by making a donation to the Cushing Academy Annual Fund.

Gifts to the annual fund have an impact on every aspect of life at the Academy. Donations help us improve spaces on campus like the recent renovations of the common rooms in Ash, Alumni, Price, and Lowe. Gifts make it possible for our teachers to take students on field trips. Gifts help make sure that we have hamburgers and fries in the dining hall on Mondays AND Fridays. Donations keep our athletes playing and our artists creating.

Even so, we thought we could make donating to the Cush a little more fun.

Here’s the deal: the class with the highest percentage of donors wins. All donors from the winning class will receive a small token of our gratitude and esteem—a gift that will really show off your Penguin Pride. 

This year, we've partnered with Give Campus to make giving even easier. You can make a gift with your computer or mobile device.

Last year, the Class of 2006 came our on top. Who will win this year?

Does your class have what it takes?
