GIVING DAY IS MAY 25, 2023!
As a community, we deeply value the Light in each person, and honor the differences in each individual. It is because of this principle that we have dedicated Giving Day in support of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund, and honoring our retiring Head of School, Edward W. Marshall.
Please join us in supporting the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Initiative Fund at Greene Street Friends School.
The DEI Initiative Fund literally is funding the future. With your support, we are creating a restricted fund that will be held in near perpetuity and the interest from that fund will ensure that DEI initiatives are annually funded - and happening. At Greene Street Friends, DEI work is not just trendy, or a passing interest, it is part of our core identity and supporters like you are making it even more robust by locking in this funding year over year.
Giving Day 2022 was a resounding success, with more than 100 of you participating in making a meaningful gift. Our full goal for the DEI initiative fund is $250,000, at which level we anticipate an annual payment to Greene Street Friends for DEI work around the $10,000 level. This will allow our Director of DEI to take some of our central programs and amplify them, raising their profile.
In addition, this work is a passion of Greene Street Friends School's Retiring Head of School Edward Marshall. As such, he has requested that anyone who is inclined to make a gift in his honor make it in support of the DEI Initiatives Fund.
