2020-2021 Report of Philanthropy

During what has been an extraordinary time for all of us at Shady Side, full of both challenge and seized opportunity, we remain truly grateful to the SSA community for its continued generosity. Last year, nearly 1,400 of you gave back to Shady Side Academy through gifts in support of our students, faculty, programs and facilities, totaling more than $7.5 million, including a record $2.15 million for the Blue & Gold Fund. Your generosity was crucial to our success in meeting the extraordinary challenges of the moment and positioning Shady Side for an even brighter future. It is with our deepest gratitude that we celebrate your generosity in our 2020-2021 Report of Philanthropy. On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of Shady Side Academy, thank you for your support.
