Thank You!!!

Thank you to everyone... alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, grandparents, and friends for making our 11th annual Philanthropy Day such a great success. It will take us a few days to finalize the results but we'll be sure to share them with the entire community.

If you missed the campaign you can still make your gift and make your impact on Loomis Chaffee.

1,000 gifts!!!



We are 80% of the way to our goal as we've reached 1,000 gifts. There's still time to make yours if you haven't done so yet.

Author's Note: Yes, this pop culture reference was a stretch but 80% of you now have this song in your head. "Say it with me... Alexa... play Vanessa Carlton!"

Campaign Highlight: The Class of 2023... STUDENTS!



Last year, we wouldn't have made our 1,250 goal if not for our current students. Students are doing their part this year, not only through their service but their philanthropy. This week, the Class of 2023 kicked off their Senior Class Gift campaign and are currently at 80% participation by their class... that's 164 seniors! Dean Barker is donating $1 for every senior who makes a gift. KUOdos Class of 2023!

Halftime... 625 gifts and counting!!!



We are halfway there, but still plenty of work to do. We can't "Take a Bow" until we get to 1,250. Nothing would "Lift Me Up" like seeing a few more gifts come in to unlock more of our sub-challenges. If you haven't made your gift yet "Where Have You Been"? "Don't Stop the Music" and let's keep this celebration going... 7 hours to go!!!

Thank You PSO!



KUO-dos to the Pelican Service Organization (PSO) who helped out with our Philanthropy Day prep once again. They promoted the campaign around campus and were front and center at today's celebration to write thank you notes, hand out ice cream, and encouraging their peers to get involved.

300 gifts!!



We have reached 300 gifts and are about 1/4 of the way to our goal of 1,250. Remember, this year's theme is community and what better community than your own family? Make Philanthropy Day a family affair... reach out to Cousin Rusty, Grandpa and Grandma Griswold, Grandpa and Grandma Smith, or even the Chester's next door to see if they want to help us reach our goal!

Celebrate with us!



Going on NOW in the Parton Room... stop by to celebrate Philanthropy Day with us by writing a thank you card to one of our many donors. Each thank you card written = a raffle ticket for an Amazon, Uber Eats, GrubHub, or Door Dash GC. Treat yourself to an iced coffee and a novelty ice cream treat.

Shout out to the LC Pelican Service Organization (PSO) for helping out with the festivities!
