Community Unites to Support Ellis on Giving Tuesday
Thank you to everyone in the Ellis community who donated to the Ellis Fund for our #GivingTuesday initiatives which lasted from November 27 to December 4. The Ellis School received a total of 356 gifts from the Ellis Community, totaling $50,757.74. Parents made an incredible 142 gifts and alumnae made an impressive 183 gifts—both far surpassing last year’s numbers.
We were particularly delighted by the number of first-time parent and alumnae donors and gifts from community members who had not given in a number of years. We are also excited to announce that parents exceeded their 125 gift goal, unlocking an additional $50,000 from generous benefactors. A special thank you to our parent and alumnae volunteers who gave their time and energy to make this happen.
If you were unable to make your gift during #GivingTuesday, a donation to the Ellis Fund of any size, at any time, is a vote of confidence for the School and all that we do to support and empower girls now and in the future. If you would still like to make a gift before the end of the year, simply donate online at your convenience. We can’t thank you enough for supporting The Ellis School and the future of all-girls education.
