Dear Shady Side Alumni,

Do you remember your favorite class at Shady Side? The teacher you could count on to help you with a problem? The coach who taught you persistence and discipline? The experiences gained here are transformational. Now imagine you can give back to those teachers and coaches who changed your life and provide the opportunity of a Shady Side education to two children who would otherwise not be able to attend. What a powerful gift.

Today, you can help sustain the unique Shady Side experience through the Alumni Trustee Challenge. The trustees are challenging Shady Side alumni to raise $15,000 for the financial aid program to provide two grants to academically qualified students and $10,000 for faculty support for the teachers who teach, mentor and coach our students every day. We are at $6,250. If 75 more alumni give $250 each before June 30 we will reach our $25,000 goal – and every gift will be matched by our generous trustees.

Your participation of any amount will bring us one step closer. Please make your gift to the Alumni Trustee Challenge today.

Together we will support an educational experience that we know to be invaluable and unparalleled.
