Mark Your Calendars and Get Ready for a Year of Inspiration!
Annual Giving Campaign (AGC) AGC means reaching out to everyone in the community to help maintain the campus, programs, and culture that make us uniquely Summerfield. SWSF depends on those who can give more to keep our tuition rates low and provide a modest level of financial assistance to those who cannot. This also allows for tax deductible giving! For the past two years we have had highly successful Annual Giving Campaigns, reaching 100% participation and surpassing our goal of $200,000. In 2012, we raised $240,000 through AGC alone. This year our AGC goal is $230,000 and we hope for full participation by parents, faculty, staff and Board of Directors. You can expect to receive our AGC brochure in the mail in October and all classes will soon have an AGC Rep to help with communication and to guide the campaign.
Grandparents’ and Special Friends’ Day, Wednesday, Nov 27: A special day on campus exclusively for grandparents and special friends to visit the school and farm, hear from faculty and board members, and enjoy a special assembly featuring our students. Coffee, tea and treats will be offered. To help with invitations, please make sure we have your child’s grandparents’ information on file.
Alumni Event, Dec 26 (always the day after Christmas!): A fun celebration just for our alumni and faculty to maintain old connections and build new ones. This event takes place on campus over the winter break and includes food, beverages, music and a nostalgic display of old photos and memories. We want to recognize that even though life has swept you onwards, you will always be a part of Summerfield. This is a fun way to volunteer for the school!
Coming in 2014….
Off-site Dance Fundraiser in February: Last year we held a Queen of Hearts themed DJ dance party at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa. To make this event happen again, we will need a group of volunteers to plan this fun event! We are looking for a lead volunteer. Theme ideas and planning help are appreciated. Contact cyndi(at)summerfieldwaldorforg.
Farm to Feast 2014 Auction and Dinner on the Farm on Saturday, May 17, 2014: This event will take many hands in many areas. It is our largest fundraising event of the year and is SO MUCH FUN! Last year this event sold out a month beforehand and we raised $203,000 through our auction and event. Mark your calendars now for this special afternoon/evening, adult-only event on the Farm.
