After graduating from Friends, alumnus Ian Fergusson ‘81 had a long career at the Congressional Research Services arm of the Library of Congress, where he specialized in international trade and finance. Ian unexpectedly passed on in 2021, and recently, the School received a distribution from his estate — a gift of $1 Million.
A loyal annual fund donor and a member of The Circle of Friends, the School’s planned giving society, Friends was moved by the magnitude of his generosity. The School is deeply grateful that Ian made a plan to take care of Friends, giving new generations of students the opportunity to thrive in our academically rigorous, Quaker-based community.
