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 we’re putting together 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 classes of 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 current use Class of 2015 Scholarship that will be awarded to a member of the incoming class. We are hoping to be able to raise $5102 this year (that’s 2015 backwards!), with 100% of the class donating.
Everyone who donates will be able to put up a leaf with their name on it on the tree that we will be hanging in the Kroon Knob to show our progress toward reaching our goal. We want to see the tree vibrant and full of leaves as soon as we can.
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! Expect a personal email from one of us this coming week with more info on how to donate.
