On February 23, 2018, St. Anne's publicly announced our Open Hearts, Open Minds capital campaign. While the campaign includes several objectives, some of the highlights include:
- Upgrading our campus with redesigned space and new technology including a new music room.
- Empowering our teachers to become better educators through Master's level coursework and leadership training.
- Expanding after school programs. We have an ambitious vision of an after-school program that offers a robust array of activities to grow the mind and enhance social development for every age group throughout the year.
We're happy to tell you that we have already made great progress. As of this writing, we have raised $1,968,000 toward our $2.3 million goal.
The first donors to support the campaign were our trustees and capital campaign committee members. They were issued a challenge which they met through personal gifts of $800,750. It is an astonishing accomplishment for the board and one that we believe would make you, as a St. Anne's parent, very proud.
We have already received more than 100 gifts from trustees, founders, alumni, and foundations. Now we are asking for your participation.
Your gift can empower our teachers to become even better educators. Your gift can expand our after-school programs. Gifts can be made by completing a pledge form and can be paid out over a period of five years.
Some of the changes already happening at St. Anne's thanks to the Open Hearts, Open Minds campaign include our investments in Singapore Math, Superkids, and our plans for a new middle school music room.
We are honored to partner with you in the education of your children. Your pledge or gift today is much needed to expand the opportunities for the children of current St. Anne's families, and enhance the school for generations to come.
