Generous Gift Supports Exceptional Faculty and Staff
The Bissell family made an extraordinary $4.5 million gift to continue their longstanding tradition of supporting our exceptional faculty and staff by adding substantial support for the Margaret E. Gragg Endowment for Faculty Professional Development and the Bissell Faculty Salary Endowment funds, bringing these funds' combined balances to $10 million.
These types of endowments helps ensure that Country Day is able to attract and retain a diverse and passionate faculty and staff, and that they are provided ample opportunities for professional growth.
