May 1, 2018
Dear Parents and Friends of All Souls School,
I feel confident in saying that we have been looking forward to these spring days. What a long winter! Of course with spring comes the time we start planning for the summer and even the next school year. This letter is being shared with you in hopes that you are also thinking about the future of our school as well as understanding the commitment necessary to continue the wonderful efforts of our faculty and administration.
There are no better advocates for our school than our families and our hope is that you reflect your belief in All Souls School with a financial contribution. As a not-for-profit institution, we depend on donations of all sizes to the Unrestricted Needs Fund to help support the school’s operating activities. Gifts can also be directed to specific areas of impact, including the Dr. Jean Mandelbaum Fund for Faculty Development and Enrichment, the Director’s Fund for Children’s Special Needs, or the Kefalidis/Johannsen Scholarship Fund, which makes it possible for children who would not otherwise be able to attend All Souls to benefit from the School’s caring approach to early childhood education.
You can contribute online through the link on the school website under the Giving tab or you can mail your contribution to the school. Any size donation is greatly appreciated and all gifts make a difference. We are hoping to achieve our goal of 100% community participation. We are significantly under that goal, and are hoping to have a terrific story to tell at the end of the year. Through giving we all contribute to the continued excellence of the All Souls early childhood experience and affirm our connection to this special community.
President, Board of Trustees
