Ray McFarland Fund for Theater

Ray McFarland has been putting it together in the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School theater department for the last twenty-three years. His productions are legendary, and they all have started with his vision. From Sondheim to Shakespeare, each production has had Ray’s stamp of flawless execution. Now many of those who took part in Ray’s myriad productions over the last 20 years are coming together to bid him adieu.

Ray has decided to retire at the end of this school year, and we would like to honor him with a designated fund supporting theater programming to show our appreciation for the contributions he has made to St. Andrew’s.

If you’d like to make a gift to St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in honor of Ray, we will be collecting gifts for The Ray McFarland Fund for Theater to be used for future theater needs. Should we collectively raise $50,000 by December 31, 2022, we will create a permanent Endowment (in Ray’s name) that will continue to grow and generate funds to support future theater needs and programs.

Gifts made below or by sending a check payable to St. Andrew’s Episcopal School to:
