Volunteer Leaders Build Positive Culture of Philanthropy at SA
More than 20 Saint Andrew’s volunteers met on campus in mid-September for the kickoff meeting of The Saint Andrew’s Fund Leadership Team.
The volunteers—parents, grandparents, and alumni—started their work with an outdoor luncheon at Justin Hall, which featured remarks by Head of School Ethan Shapiro, Board of Trustees Chairman Michael Goodman ‘89, and Saint Andrew’s Director of Advancement Felicia A. Smith.
The team then convened in Justin Hall for presentations and discussion about the importance of The Saint Andrew’s Fund and how to increase overall parent and alumni participation in The Saint Andrew’s Fund during the current school year. In particular, the group discussed their role as enthusiastic ambassadors for The Saint Andrew’s Fund and how to help our school build a positive culture of philanthropy that supports Saint Andrew's mission to educate students in Mind, Body and Spirit.
“We are very fortunate to have such an outstanding group of volunteers leading our efforts to grow The Saint Andrew’s Fund as we celebrate our school's 60th anniversary,” said Lisa Daly, Associate Director of Parent Engagement at Saint Andrew’s.
The Saint Andrew’s Fund, the school’s annual giving program and most important giving priority, provides critical resources towards the operating budget and ensures Saint Andrew’s can offer the very best learning experiences for students each year. All gifts, at any level, support academic excellence, arts, athletics, faculty professional development, safety and wellness, financial aid, maintenance of our beautiful campus, and innovative technology. All families are encouraged to make a meaningful gift to The Saint Andrew’s Fund.
