In the development office, we have the incredible fortune of working alongside Severn School's talented faculty and students while supporting learning and teaching through philanthropy. We hear the stories our donors share about their "why" — during a conversation on the bleachers at a sporting event, in a carline in the afternoon, or even in a note that accompanies a gift they mailed to our office. The Severn donor wants to support the excellent teacher, honor that special coach, or give back to the school that gave them or their children the skills and experience to thrive.
This year, I invite you to find your "why." Remember that person, place, or experience that makes Severn so special for your family. When you make your gift, I encourage you to share your stories with me. Together, we can work to ensure that every Severn student is known and valued, that our outstanding faculty feel supported, and programs are enhanced to provide the most compelling opportunities and spaces to learn and teach.
