The Advancement Team is here to lend support to Marvelwood initiatives and efforts, and to encourage you to be in touch with questions, comments, and ideas for the School. Please let us know how we may assist you.
It is important to emphasize the evolving nature of the Office in regards to our outreach work with alumni, parents and friends. We are building momentum; we are striving to improve our communication, efficiency and productivity, with a long view towards implementing the School's strategic plan and preparing for future long term needs through a capital campaign. In the short term, we are honing our outreach ("friendraising"), annual giving, communication and messaging, event, auction and stewardship skills.
Office personnel and volunteers are more likely than ever to be out of the office and on the road meeting with our many constituents. We are particularly focused on alumni and parent visits, on hearing the many great Marvelwood stories, learning about your experiences and the School's history. Our alumni, families and friends care deeply about the Marvelwood experience and the teachers who make things happen in the classroom, on the playing fields and in the dormitories.
We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you if you have any questions, comments, ideas, suggestions or concerns: (860) 927-0047, ext 1013 or via e-mail. We are here to lend a hand. Responsiveness is a hallmark of a strong development office.
As always, thank you for your support and many kindnesses to Marvelwood. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you in getting the word out about our great School.
Help us meet our goal for 2016-2017!
Two anonymous donors have generously pledged to match up to $50,000 for the Classes of 1958-1988 and another $50,000 for the Classes of 1989-2017.
Both gifts are contingent on doubling last year's alumni giving to the Annual Fund.
