Raise the Shield


Fenwick’s first ever 24-hour on-line day-of-giving was held on February 22, 2017. It was a rousing success with nearly 800 donors (not including current students) and $180,000 raised toward the Fenwick Fund in a single day!


The goal was to engage Friars from across the state, the country and around the world in support of Fenwick. It also helped inspire some healthy competition among our alumni classes! Raise the Shield marketing was driven by videos and social media created and produced by current Fenwick students. Please click here to watch the inaugural trailer.

Raise the Shield will only grow in coming years as a community-wide event to express generosity to Fenwick for all it has meant to Friars and their families and friends. Please look for more information in Fall 2017, but the second annual Raise the Shield will be held February 22, 2018.


Please help us Raise the Shield in 2018!
