ONE.TOGETHER. The Campaign for St. Michael's


The Campaign Steering Committee is pleased to share the Mary Morton Parsons two-to one challenge grant was met May 1. Many thanks to all those who supported the challenge with gifts and pledges!
Construction is moving at a fast pace for Hubbard Hall. We have lights! The building now has power and light fixtures are being installed. Majority of drywall is up and bathrooms are sparkling with ceramic tiles. 
As work progresses on the building, the Capital Campaign Committee, with the support of the Development Office, continues to move forward in the "quiet" phase of the campaign, meeting and securing gifts and pledges from a wide range of constituencies. Meeting with parents, grandparents, alumni families and friends of the School on an individual basis provides a greater understanding of the project and its funding needs. The philanthropic goal of the campaign is $4.2 M. Please contact Ned Witthoeftt, campaign co-chair, or the Development Office, if you would like additional information.

Thank you for the many ways you are involved with St. Michael's!
