  • Why I Give: Amanda McFadden

    "It is the people at Sonoma Academy who make the magic happen. I give to SA because I am deeply invested in my community, where we celebrate the ensemble, coming together to work for a common goal. The willingness of the students and teachers to try new things and to work hard is all I could hope to ask for, not just as a teacher, but as a participant in a place where we carry each other. When we give our students something to work hard for, something that motivates them, they will - and do - shine. There is so much gratitude in this community, I think because we know we are at the helm of something very special.”

Every Gift Matters

Behind every gift to Sonoma Academy is a story. Some give because they were inspired by our brilliant faculty. Some give because they believe that education is the best investment there is. Some give because they know that a caring, community-oriented culture paired with academic rigor is the recipe for a school than can foster a new generation of creative critical thinkers and responsible, passionate leaders.
