Donors who wish to contribute to the Annual Fund or Capital Campaign but do not wish to make an immediate payment may instead make a pledge.
A pledge is a promise to make a specified payment within a specific period of time; for the Annual Fund, it is the fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).
Pledges can be made online, by mail, email, or phone. The Office of Institutional Advancement will mail pledge reminder letters and pledge forms during the fund year. Please call the Director of Advancement Services Laura Booze at 540.687.4517 should you have any questions or wish to make a pledge over the phone.

Young women learn best when challenged by an interdisciplinary and experiential curriculum. That's why, at this affordable boarding school for girls in Virginia, you'll find girls flying drones across campus, developing apps in Schoolhouse, writing poetry on the banks of Goose Creek, and utilizing our current construction projects to learn about engineering. The Foxcroft Circle, previously the Annual Fund, makes these experiences possible.
Embracing Miss Charlotte's motto: "Keep up with the times," the Campus Master Plan for Foxcroft addresses present and future needs with understanding, appreciation, and commitment to the character of the campus: rural, open, solid, and unpretentious.

Thanks to you, the Great Women of Foxcroft, we met the 1914 Challenge with 109 donors giving in honor of our Founding Day, and the “Winning Fund” was our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Fund, which supports programming and educational opportunities for our students and community — unlocking a total of $3,828 in challenge dollars! In addition, the trivia winners from our kick-off event chose to designate their $500 to Buildings & Grounds which they felt would help alleviate some of the costs incurred through COVID-19 mitigation measures this year.
