Dear Blake Community,
As I write to you, we have raised $78 of our $80 million goal for Excellence Accelerated: The Campaign for Blake. I am thrilled we have reached this historic level of philanthropy, and I am confident in our collective effort to finish strong.
The campaign's vision is deeply rooted in our commitment to supporting the people who make our school exceptional: faculty, staff, families, alumni and, of course, students. The campaign focuses on three areas of investment: faculty professional development, student financial assistance and facility improvements. All three priorities stem from a commitment to invest in people. This means hiring, retaining and developing superb faculty, supporting talented students through a comprehensive tuition assistance program and creating welcoming spaces that enhance the educational experience.
Read on to see how the campaign is already delivering on this vision. From the development of Blake's global immersion program to the construction of the Blake Commons, the generosity of our community is transforming our school and securing its future for generations to come.
These final months mark a pivotal moment as we come together to help our community finish strong. Every gift pushes us forward, so if you've been waiting to make yours, now is the time. Your generosity can make the difference.
Warmly and with gratitude,
Excellence Accelerated Co-Chair
