Annual Giving: The Cody Fund

Hi Cody

“I owe a great deal to Asheville School, and whatever I do is my way of paying back.”

Hiram “Hi” Cody, Jr. ’33 was so moved by his one year as a student at Asheville School that he credited it as the most important turning point in his life. As a result, he devoted himself to giving back so others could have the same experience.  Cody understood that his gifts and the gifts of others work together to sustain the school.

The Power of Collective Giving

Annual contributions to the Cody Fund provide vital operating funds to ensure that Asheville School’s immediate and greatest needs are met each year to sustain the excellence of the School and the student experience.

Together, these gifts address expenses not covered by tuition, allowing Asheville School to make a bold and meaningful commitment to our students and faculty. A commitment that we simply couldn’t fulfill otherwise.

When I was at Asheville School, I was acutely aware that something profound was happening there and inside of me every single day. I couldn’t put my finger on what it was then, and I still can’t today, but I think that's because the magnitude of an Asheville School education is so great. I give to the Cody Fund because I honestly believe that my experiences at Asheville School are still shaping me today. The world needs more people who have experiences like this, and I want to be a part of making that become a reality.”
