Western Reserve Academy’s Annual Fund, which is 41 percent toward the 2012-13 goal of $2,200,000, is currently being bolstered by three Annual Fund giving challenges.
Reunion Giving has long been a tradition at WRA and challenges help make class gifts extra special and exciting. This year, milestone Reunion classes – the 25th and the 50th – have dollar for dollar matches. Additionally, after an extremely successful 2011-12 year, the Young Alumni Program continues to thrive and is off to a strong start with a team challenge.
The Class of 1963, celebrating its 50th Reunion, has a class giving goal of $100,000 with 100 percent participation. An anonymous donor has challenged his classmates to achieve these goals and will match each and every gift up to $5,000, dollar for dollar. If you are a member of the class and would like more information, please contact a member of your 50th Reunion Committee or Director of the Annual Fund Andrea Hocevar.
The Class of 1988 is celebrating its 25th Reunion with a class goal of $50,000. To help support this special occasion, gifts of $1,000 and more are being matched by a class member. Contact a member of your 25th Reunion Committee or Senior Leadership Gifts Officer Anthony Pasiak for more information.
Lastly, two of our young alumni have teamed up to present a one-for-one match of every young alumni gift made before Dec. 31, up to a total of $13,000. Any gifts from alumni in the classes of 2003 through 2012 are eligible for matching. Visit the Young Alumni webpage or contact Assistant Director of the Annual Fund & Young Alumni Programs Tim Rahauser to learn more.
The Annual Fund is a tax-deductible opportunity to support WRA. The Annual Fund supports more than 8 percent of the school’s current operating expenses. More importantly, these gifts help enhance the day-to-day life of every student and faculty member by supporting a variety of programs in areas including academics, the visual and performing arts, athletics, college guidance, faculty development, financial aid and technology.
To make a gift online and help us exceed the 50 percent mark by Dec. 31, please visit wra.net/giving-online.
