During this unprecedented time in our world, we are reflecting on the many ways your generosity has prepared us to weather this storm.
When Episcopal Collegiate moved to E-Learning on Monday, March 16, our community was prepared to do so, largely because of your investment in faculty development and technology over the past three years. We have been able to fund training and enhance our use of technology in the classroom because of donors like you who supported Episcopal Collegiate through the Annual Fund, the Parents’ Auxiliary Auctions, and individual capital projects.
Specifically, your giving supported a technology shift from Office 365 to Google Suite, training for 12 Google-certified teachers and 2 Google-certified trainers, and other annual technology needs. Your support allowed us to host Google Summits on campus the past two summers, which provided faculty with opportunities to learn best practices from the EdTech team. Those same best practices are now being used in their E-learning curricula.
Without your past support, we would not have been able to bring the level of expertise and opportunity to our teachers that they are now delivering to our students.
Our donors have also allowed us to pay our blessings forward. For instance, our donor-funded 3D printers are now being used to make face shields for our medical community. You can learn more about that endeavor here.
Thank you for all you’ve done, and continue to do, to support our students, our faculty, and our community. We wish you health and peace during this trying time, and we look forward to a day when we can all safely gather together again.
Director of Annual Giving
Whether you're supporting the Episcopal Collegiate Annual Fund, one of our biennial fundraising events—the Parents' Auxiliary Auction and the Wild Game Dinner—or other capital giving opportunities like the Run Wild Campaign, your support makes a difference in the lives of our children.
This year, our fundraising effort includes three pillars of support:
- 2019-20 Episcopal Collegiate Annual Fund
- Run Wild Campaign
- Parents’ Auxiliary 2020 Stay Wild Auction
Each endeavor has a distinct purpose and funds an important part of life at our school. This is an ambitious, but exciting fundraising year, and we are confident that with your support, we will be able to reach all three goals.
