At the heart of Ransom Everglades' commitment to reinventing excellence is thoughtful strategic planning.
Five years into my tenure at Ransom Everglades and two years into the public launch of REinventing Excellence: The Campaign for Ransom Everglades, I am overcome with gratitude for the many alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, trustees and friends who have brought us to this historic moment in our journey.
In 2018-19, donors contributed nearly $9 million in financial support for our students, faculty, programs and campuses. Giving to The Fund for Ransom Everglades reached nearly $2.8 million. I am thrilled to report that commitments to REinventing Excellence now stand at $47 million, nearly two-thirds of the way to our goal of $75 million.
As we start the year, the STEM Center continues to rise on the upper school campus, and we expect to unveil the building to our community by early next year. We are also moving forward on the renovation of the historic La Brisa home, which will eventually house offices for our administration and staff.
We are working diligently to foster the qualities that distinguish student life and learning at RE – aptitude in experiential learning, interdisciplinary proficiency, global awareness and concern for the greater good.
I am delighted to introduce the 2018-19 Report of Giving. In these pages, we thank those whose contributions are creating the RE of tomorrow, and we share a few of the many ways in which RE donors are making a difference for our students and faculty.
On behalf of the entire RE community, thank you.
