Current STA Families Answer the Challenge
To encourage all families to participate in this year’s Annual Giving effort, the Governing Board launched the STRIVE for Annual Giving Challenge. The terms were simple: If 100 current families made a gift (or fulfilled an existing pledge) between February 17 and March 19, 2014, a member of the Governing Board would contribute $38,000 to Annual Giving—the equivalent of a full student scholarship.
Over the 31 days leading up to spring break, 134 families participated in the STRIVE for Annual Giving Challenge, surpassing our 100-donor goal and securing $38,000 in challenge funds. In addition to triggering additional support for students and their teachers, this remarkable outpouring of generosity lifted parent participation in Annual Giving to 81%. To all who contributed during the challenge, and to all who contributed before, thank you!
The momentum generated by the 441 families who have made their gift to Annual Giving this year gets us even closer to our ultimate goal of 100% parent participation. Please visit www.stalbansschool.org/parentgiving to learn more about why your support is so important, view current participation rates by form, and, if you haven’t already, make your gift.
Please note that the final day to contribute to 2013-2014 Annual Giving is June 30, 2014.
