Raise the Shield


About Raise the Shield

Raise the Shield is Fenwick's day of giving.

A day of giving is a 24-hour online fundraising event bringing together like-minded donors around a common cause. Our common cause is Fenwick.

Raise the Shield, Fenwick’s second annual day of giving, will take place on February 22, 2018.

This online fundraising event will be held from 9 p.m. on Feb. 21 through 9 p.m. on Feb. 22, 2018. Our goal is to engage Friars from across the state, the country and around the world in support of Fenwick.

Raise the Shield is driven by videos created and produced by current Fenwick students.

Our inaugural 24-hour day of giving took place on February 22, 2017, and was a smashing success!

Our video concept for Raise the Shield 2017 was that the Dominicans had left for the day and that Dom, the mascot, needed to fill in. Chaos ensued, and donations were required to bring the Dominicans back the school to restore order.

Nearly 1,800 members of the Fenwick community, including almost 1,000 current students, came together and raised more than $180,000 in 24 hours!

Every incentive and challenge that was presented to the Fenwick community were seized and surpassed! Every decade of alumni participated, and the current and past parent communities sprang into action!
