While we applaud the helpers, it is important to note that some in our community are facing hardship during this uncertain time. We’re supporting these families through Haverford Cares, an effort kicked off by a group of Haverford parents and alumni who have committed more than $58,500 to help those who have been significantly impacted. We invite others in the community who are able to help to reinforce this effort as we aim to provide $100,000 in support for those most in need.
This emergency funding will help those in the Haverford community who need it most. If you have already made your gift to The Haverford Fund, which provides critical operating support to the School, please consider making a gift to Haverford Cares. You can earmark your gift for faculty and staff, including part time and seasonal staff, or for tuition assistance and supplemental support for families who are facing difficult circumstances and may not be able to remain at Haverford without your help.
All gifts through the end of the fiscal year count toward the Character at Our Core campaign, which we hope to bring to a successful close on June 30, 2020. One of the campaign pillars is “Realizing Inspiring Spaces,” which positions us to complete Haverford’s campus master plan. I hope you will enjoy this all-new virtual tour of our Middle School, which remains on schedule to open in fall 2020. While the building won’t truly come to life until it is filled with our boys and our teachers, these spaces for learning, collaborating, and experiment will inspire us all to do our best for Haverford and for each other, every day.
