25th Reunion Stewardship Fund
St. Edmund’s Academy provides a dynamic and enriching learning experience and the benefits of a St. Edmund’s education are evident to all alumni as they blaze fulfilling paths in life, at work, with family, and in service to their community. On the occasion of their 25th Reunion (June 2010), the members of the class of 1985 created the 25th Reunion Stewardship Fund (“the Fund”) as a means of giving back to their beloved alma mater, and as a vehicle for sustaining the St. Edmund’s experience for future generations of students. With gifts from both alumni and their families, the Fund has been designed both to provide annual, unrestricted support to the Annual Fund, and to stimulate Annual Fund giving by subsequent classes celebrating their respective 25th Reunions.
The 25th Reunion Stewardship Fund serves multiple purposes by:
• Raising the profile of each 25th Reunion class and inspiring classmates to reconnect with each other and with the school;
• Contributing matching funds against Annual Fund giving by each year’s 25th Reunion class, thus spurring higher participation and greater financial support from that class.
• Promoting a culture of giving among alumni, as their capacity and inclination towards philanthropy continues to grow; and
• Setting a precedent for other fundraising initiatives to follow, further stimulating long-term financial stewardship of our beloved school.
While the Fund fosters and amplifies giving by 25th Reunion class members and their families, all members of the St. Edmund’s family are welcome to support this community-building endeavor. To that end, we intend to solicit support from all St. Edmund’s alumni and friends to grow the principal of the Fund, thus increasing the size of the annual matching grant and maximizing the impact of the initiative.
