Pierce Pride 2020

Dear Ravens,

During this unprecedented time, which challenges all of us, I am proud of the grace and patience demonstrated by our students, especially the Class of 2020. No one could have predicted the impact of COVID-19 or the enormity of the community action that would be required to combat it.

This is the time of year when all Franklin Pierce students should be preparing to celebrate their accomplishments. Instead, they are offering their care and concern for our community’s well-being and are adapting in ways thought inconceivable just one month ago. For me, this is the highest tribute reflecting the core values of Raven Nation.

Before the fiscal year ends on May 31, please consider making a contribution, of any size, to the Pierce Annual Fund and help meet the acute needs of our students.

When you make a gift to the Pierce Annual Fund, please know that your support helps toward:

I am humbled to share that Dr. Mark Goodman ’71 and, his wife, June Goodman, have graciously come forward with a matching leadership gift.

They asked me to invite you to join them and they will match your gift to the Pierce Annual Fund, up to $25,000.

As a community, we are stronger together, and today, more than ever, I am proud to be a Raven.



P.S. You can stay updated on our coronavirus management and post your experience with us weekly on social media - Facebook | Instagram. Please review a special announcement on our website on the CARES charitable giving incentives.
