In the midst of all that will be happening in the next few weeks before graduation, we hope you’ll consider taking a few moments to participate in a special effort to raise support for the 2015 Class Gift.
Here’s how it works: each year, the members of the graduating class make a collective gift to the Annual Fund in support of scholarships for future students. The donations classes made before us helped to provide the scholarship support so many of us have received at F&ES.
Our Class Gift is an awesome way for us to continue the legacy of students giving back to the School that has given us so much. Every $1,000 we raise will create a Class of 2015 Scholarship that will be awarded to a member of the incoming Class of 2017. We are hoping to be able to raise $5102 this year (That’s 2015 backwards!), with 100% of the class donating. Your help can get us from seed funding to a fitting tree-bute to F&ES.
Everyone who donates will be able to put up a leaf with their name on it on the tree that is hanging in the Kroon Knob, to show our progress toward reaching our goal. You can follow our progress online too as we watch our virtual seedling grow into a mighty tree! We want to see the tree vibrant and full of leaves as soon as we can, so donate online here, donate in person to your agents, and encourage your friends to join us, as we help out future F&ES-ers.
In the next few weeks we’ll all hopefully be able to take some time to reflect on our experience here and where it’s led us. Take a moment to chip in what you can to the Class Gift—gifts of all amounts count and make a real difference!
