2nd Generation Visionaries

In 1964, 39 Manchester families made an investment in a vision of education, to an institution that would become The Derryfield School. We celebrate that vision and their leadership every year in the School that they founded, as we work to help hundreds of young people become their best selves.

Now, with fifty years of excellence in education behind us, Derryfield is looking for the next generation of leaders, with a new vision and new energy, who will take a leadership role in preparing the School for its next fifty years. All donors who make a leadership gift of $100,000 and above will become one of Derryfield's Second Generation Visionaries and receive the following benefits: 

  • Recognized in a lasting exhibit on the School campus

  • Lifetime invitation to Founder's Day luncheon

  • (Additional benefits to be determined)
