As many of you may know, we celebrated the Robinson Scholarship Fund Golf Classic, one of our annual favorites on November 7, 2015. After our golf classic campaign ended, we were very excited to share that the tournament was a great success! We made $30,500 for the Robinson Scholarship Fund, which makes this tournament the best one yet! We received support from all of our community: students, alumni, parents, teachers, staff members and vendors. Not only did we almost double last year’s profit, we are also very proud to say that we had double the number of sponsors—40 in total. Most importantly, the Robinson community was more involved than ever, bringing in almost twice as many individual players as last year. This tournament’s success clearly shows that it’s possible to continue thriving and growing when we all work together!
The Robinson School Admissions and Development Offices recently received more exciting news! On March 14, 2016, Head of School Cindy Ogg and Operations Manager Jannette Santiago announced a Matching Fund Pledge for the amount raised in this year’s Robinson School Scholarship Fund Golf Classic! Matching Funds are funds that are set to be paid in equal amount to funds available from other sources for charitable works and/or public good. This pledge exemplifies Robinson’s commitment to a spirit and culture of philanthropy in action. We are proud of how this culture continues to grow and extend throughout our community. This growth happens organically when Robinson, as an institution, steps up as a role model and takes concrete action, as with this matching funds pledge. We’re proud to be part of a school that steps up!
On behalf of our scholarship recipients, and the Admissions and Development Offices, we want to recognize ROBINSON SCHOOL for donating $30,000 as a Matching Fund Pledge to the Robinson School Scholarship Fund. This is the first annual pledge that Robinson School will donate to the Scholarship Program, as part of its sustained and ongoing support for this important program. It fills us with pride and joy to know that our Scholarship Fund Golf Classic success will be doubled with the support of Robinson School.
We invite the entire Robinson community in thanking our wonderful school!
