Dear Alumni of St. Anne School,

We are writing to request your help for our school. In 2014, the City of San Francisco passed an ordinance requiring all private schools to do a seismic study. Although our school has survived the past few earthquakes, the study revealed that if an earthquake shook from a different direction, the walls and ceilings might collapse. I don't think we would want to imagine the consequences of that happening to our children. Therefore, with the support of Archbishop Cordileone, the School Board and Finance Committee, Mr. White and I have decided to move ahead with retrofitting our school for the safety of our children.

Through generous donors from the past who have established our endowment, the School and Parish will fund approximately $3.2 million, which is about 80% of the $ 4.1 million needed for the project. However, we'll still need $800K. We hope to meet the rest through a loan and through fundraising. Our Alumni fundraising goal is approximately $100,000. May we ask you to consider giving $1,000 to this project to help us keep our children safe during the next earthquake? Obviously, some of you may find that amount difficult, while others might consider giving even more. We do want to encourage 100% participation from our alumni community, so please give at a level that is affordable to you or your family. And may I also ask if you'd consider asking extended family members or your company's matching donation program to support us in this worthwhile project?

We've all been beneficiaries of the generosity of past generations and we are asking you to "pay it forward" to help today's and future generations. Our school is great not because everyone takes care of themselves but because we help and take care of each other. Though we have no children of our own in the school, Mr. White and I will donate $1,000 each for our students of today and tomorrow. We hope that you will consider joining us at $1,000 or at a level affordable for you or your family.
