As graduation day quickly approaches and we all reflect on our time at F&ES, we are also presented with the opportunity to give back through the 2016 Class Gift.
What is the Class Gift? Every year, the graduating class makes a collective gift to the Annual Fund at F&ES, which supports scholarships for future students in financial need. These scholarships provide meaningful aid to incoming students, while also symbolizing our school pride and peer support.
Our Class Gift continues this legacy of students giving back to our School and our students. For every $1,000 raised, a new “Class of 2016 Scholarship” is created for an incoming Class of 2018 student. We have set the goal of raising $5,000--that’s five scholarships--with 100% participation from our class. This year, the campaign is focused on impact: the impact FES has had on you, and the impact your gift will have on the incoming class.
You will see the Class Gift Agents tabling in the Kroon Knob in front of a landscape that we designed. When you make a gift, we encourage you to increase the diversity of the landscape by adding to it, whether it be a fish, a leaf, a bird, or whatever you would like. We want to see a landscape that is as vibrant and full as our class, reflecting all of our generosity as we support future F&ES-ers.
Donations are accepted in-person through the Class Agents or by donating online here. You can track our progress as the landscape grows by checking this page throughout the campaign. We hope you take a moment to give what you can to the Class Gift and that you encourage your friends to give—gifts of all amounts count and make a real difference.
Thank you from your Class Gift Agents and future F&ESers!
