Meet Our Donors

Over the years, many generous individuals have set up gifts to benefit our long-term mission. When we asked them why, they shared their stories and we recount a couple of stories here.

hr_sbs-terry-devito“Giving through my will was easy to do, and it’s very satisfying to me that my gift is going to a good cause. For years I kept thinking, ‘I’m getting to that age, I should do something.’ Now, I have taken care of family and also my school. What I find so great is that I can be a part of the school’s future. My education was empowering and gave me the tools to do what I wanted in life. I would like Stoneleigh-Burnham to always be available for girls. It was such a positive experience for me.”
– Terry DeVito ’69




“Education was paramount in my family. My gift through a bequest is a way for me to thank my parents for their dedication to my learning and education. They encouraged me to find what I’m passionate about and to learn as much as possible about that interest. Though I do not have children of my own, I want my gift to help ensure that other young women have the same Stoneleigh-Burnham experience that I did.”
– Kathleen Tuck Fontaine ’83 (Alumnae Board Member)


Linda Barrows Bloodgood

“I needed small classes and a supportive environment to encourage my intellectual growth. I experienced three wonderful years at Mary A. Burnham. I am grateful and feel strongly it is important to give back to the community that gave me so much. My Planned Gift will secure the future growth and development of our students.”
– Linda Barrows Bloodgood ’55B (a 40+ Year True Blue Donor)



Anne Morris Stockton“Stoneleigh-Burnham provided me with freedom to grow, room to express my individuality and guidance from caring faculty. Each year I have followed the news of the school with interest and pride. I have chosen to put Stoneleigh-Burnham in my will because of the inspirational leadership of our present Head of School, Sally Mixsell. We should all be proud of where our school is today and we can all be a part of its bright future.” – Anne Morris-Stockton (’64S)
