In 1892, Brother Zephiriny founded a boarding school for young men at Lexington Avenue and 76th Street in Manhattan. St. Ann’s Academy was built on the pillars of the Marist spirit and fostered academic and athletic excellence. It also encouraged personal and spiritual growth, resulting in the development of well-rounded and good citizens. That tradition was upheld in 1957, when St. Ann’s Academy became Archbishop Molloy High School and moved to Briarwood, Queens. It is still our foundation today, as Molloy stands as one of the leading coeducational institutions in the United States.
For 125 years, Marist Brothers, teachers, staff, parents, students, and alumni have taken care of our mission to provide present and future generations of Stanners quality lessons in mind, body, and spirit. Our focus has always been on “What Matters”.
Today, it is our honor and privilege to present an exciting opportunity forged by a small but dedicated group of alumni who are committed to Molloy’s mission. In honor of our 125th anniversary, these anonymous alumni have pledged $125,000 to establish the “Drive for 125” effort. The drive began on November 22nd and ends December 31st.
The Drive for 125…what does it mean? It’s a 2:1 match. That means every $2 you donate to the Fund For Molloy today until December 31st will be matched per dollar. Your gift of $10 becomes $15, $50 becomes $75, $100 becomes $150, $1,000 becomes $1,500, and so on.
As we celebrate this giving season and give thanks for all the blessings that we have, we ask all in our Stanner family to consider giving to the Drive for 125 gift challenge. We have come a long way from our humble beginnings, but we remain humble today in asking for your support. The traditions we have held dear for so many years are alive today because of the giving spirit of generations who have come before us. We can carry on those traditions today and in the years to come if we all stay connected and do our part toward giving our students the best opportunities possible.
