Congratulations to the Class of 2019 on embarking on their ninth year at Burke's!
In 2014, Burke's reinstated a tradition of creating a lasting tribute to their graduating class through a Class Endowment Fund. This year, the class of 2019 will continue this important initiative by creating their own class-endowed fund.
The Class of 2019 Endowed Fund will benefit generations of girls and be recognized each year in the annual report, honoring this exceptional class well after they have become alumnae. We hope that they, in turn, will someday contribute to this fund, giving back to the school that helped lay the foundation for who they will become.
In this ever-changing economic environment, endowment has never been more important. A strong endowment allows Burke’s to be innovative and adaptive to changing curricular and programmatic needs, to sustain the high quality of the educational experience, and to increase financial assistance. We hope that the families of this class are excited to leave this legacy, in honor of our girls, the class of 2019, and to a school that has meant so much to all of them.
Our goals for this fund are $200,000 and 100% participation from the class parents. Contributions to the Eighth Grade Class Gift are in lieu of gifts to the Annual Fund.
If you have questions about the Eighth Grade Class Endowment, please contact Diana Kaw, Associate Director of Advancement, at email@example.com
