Your gifts make a difference. 

“We enrolled our girls with a bias brought with us from the past, and now they are both thriving in the present, and their futures are nothing but bright. Thank you for making sure that Nightingale holds true to its principles while expanding the hearts and minds of our two daughters. Paul Burke and the dedicated Nightingale faculty are making all the difference.”

deep roots

The Fribourg Family

When it comes to Nightingale tradition, it would be hard to find a family with deeper roots than the Fribourgs. For nearly 50 years, the Fribourg family has been an integral part of the Nightingale community—as parents, alumnae, grandparents, and trustees, and even, in one case, as a faculty member.

The Fribourgs’ relationship with Nightingale stretches back to the 1960s, when Mary Ann and Michel enrolled their daughter, Nadine, as a member of the Class of 1973 and then their daughter, Caroline, in the Class of 1978. In 1974, Mary Ann Fribourg began a decade-long tenure as a Nightingale trustee, a role that Caroline Fribourg Rosen ’78 and her brother, Paul, also held when they were parents at the school. Caroline’s daughter, Suzanne, graduated from Nightingale in 2011, and Paul’s three daughters also attended Nightingale: Rebecca ’05, Jordana ’06 and Deborah ’07. Many alumnae also remember Caroline as a faculty member in the 1980s and 1990s.

In honor of their longstanding connection, the Fribourgs are delighted to support the Every Girl campaign. “We, as a family, wanted to support Nightingale’s physical expansion and reorganization to give them more space and the ability to continue to stay ahead of the times,” says Caroline.

“One of the many things that makes Nightingale so special is the way they have melded a traditional education with staying on the cutting edge in both the newest developments in learning methods and in the technological arena.”

confidence in the future

The Carpet Family

For Sandy and Anthony Carpet, whose two daughters – Emma ’22 and Penelope ’27 – attend Nightingale, their enthusiasm to be early campaign leaders stemmed from their excitement about what’s happening at Nightingale today and their confidence in the vision for the future. 


“We were delighted to have the opportunity to support this campaign, which represents a winning combination – Paul Burke’s leadership of Nightingale, the expertise of the faculty and division heads, a state-of-the-art schoolhouse renovation, and a mission to support every girl.”
