In memory of Ford M. Fraker

In lieu of flowers, Ford's family will be making a donation in his honor to support scholarships for students at the Taft School in Connecticut  with the aim to increase the number of students able to attend without financial restriction. Taft has meant a great deal to our whole family  -- this is the school all three of his children and several other family members attended, and where several of Ford's dear friends served students for many years. Ford spoke often about wanting to make a contribution to Taft to further the school's financial aid efforts and resources. Our hope is that this fund will honor his memory by making meaningful impact to students and their families. 

All are welcome to contribute towards this fund in Ford's memory. Thank you very much for your support.

Further information:
This GoFundMe campaign has been created by Antonia Fraker Esposito, Ford's daughter, on behalf of Ford's family -- Linda, Antonia, Jonathan and Charlie. We are working with the headmaster of the Taft School, William R. Macmullen, to establish a fund at Taft in Ford's honor to support students with financial need. All donations received through this GoFundMe platform will be given directly to Taft to help establish this fund. If you would like to make a donation directly to the Taft School for Ford's fund rather than through the GoFundMe platform, you may send a check with “Ford Fraker Fund” in the memo line to:
Attn: Chris Latham
Director of Development
The Taft School
110 Woodbury Rd
Watertown CT 06795

Or you can donate securely to Taft online with a credit card with a note indicating “Ford Fraker Fund”
