Plant A Seed Giving Campaign
December 15, 2017 - February 28, 2018 (Extended from January 31)
The Annual Fund is at the heart of all giving at La Pietra. The Plant A Seed For Your Daughter's Future campaign focuses on increasing parent participation towards La Pietra's Annual Fund.
Your tax-deductible donation to the Annual Fund will have an immediate impact! Your contribution helps La Pietra to offer an exceptional educational experience for our daughters and to provide an environment that inspires confidence and independent lifelong learning for today and for the next 50 years.
Tuition alone only covers about 75% of the cost of educating our daughters. Like all independent schools, La Pietra relies on the vital support of donations to the Annual Fund to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual operating expenses to offer our daughters extraordinary opportunities.
All members of the school community are encouraged to make a gift. We are grateful to La Pietra’s teachers, staff and trustees who inspire, lead, motivate and touch the lives of our daughters every day. 100% of our trustees, faculty, and staff support the Annual Fund. During the last few years, parent participation in the Annual Fund has increased from 15% to 80%. Our goal this year is 100%. Strong parent participation is critical to La Pietra’s financial strength and fundraising success. Your participation demonstrates your belief in the school, generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join you with their contributions, and is a key indicator to foundations and other major donors that we have consistent support from those we serve.
If you believe, as we do, that a La Pietra education provides the roots for success in college and beyond for our daughters, join us in planting a seed to secure that future. Every gift, no matter what the size, counts towards our goal of reaching 100% participation and is deeply appreciated.
We will recognize the class with the highest participation with an ice cream social! In addition, students from the class with the highest participation will be entered into a special drawing to win a pair of Apple Airbuds, donated by Board of Trustees member and alumna, Mrs. Debbie Weil-Manuma '75!
