Rowland Foundation

Benefactors Barry and Wendy Rowland

Barry and Wendy Rowland have been interested in education for many years. As vice chair on the Board of Trustees at Burr and Burton Academy in Manchester, Barry is acutely aware of the financial needs of schools. The Rowlands have been great supporters of education in Vermont. They became deeply invested in the future of education at Burr and Burton Academy by giving the largest donation to the school's endowment in its 180-year history, and the largest gift to a secondary school in the state. Barry Rowland was chief administrative officer for Eaton Vance, a Boston money management firm, for more than 30 years. His father bought a vacation home in Vermont in 1951 and Barry and Wendy have been part-time residents of Londonderry for 10 years. The Rowland Foundation enables them to continue to support secondary schools throughout Vermont.
