The Class of 2022 Fund for the Dining Commons
Originating with the Class of 1990, the Senior Fund has become a GA tradition. Parents of seniors contribute an increased gift to this fund, which is established in each class’ name in its senior year. The Senior Fund takes the place of the Annual Fund for parents of seniors and counts toward class participation numbers in all classes in which senior families have daughters.
When we think of the Class of 2022, the first words that come to mind are spirit and community. This class of exceptional young women has experienced pivotal moments of their high school career during a pandemic, yet still they shine. Each is persevering and taking to heart School President Aiyanna's motto, "today is your day," while living each day to the fullest—from the classroom to the studio to the field to the stage to the court—whatever their passion, our girls are working hard to achieve it.
This year is their year. In that light, it seems fitting to name a part of campus that, like the Class of 2022, brings people together in celebration and in community. We are thrilled to announce that our Senior Fund will go towards the newly renovated Dining Commons; and in recognition of the funds raised, will name the phenomenal new terrace overlooking the central courtyard, the Class of 2022 Dining Commons Terrace. With the reimagined campus, the terrace has become a focal point of GA’s campus, a welcoming place for outdoor dining, meetings, reflection, impromptu performances, gatherings, celebrations, and future reunions for our girls and their fellow alumnae.
As class of 2022 parents, we have shown tremendous generosity toward GA over the years. We are hopeful that families will make stretch gifts, two to three times—and in lieu of—their typical Annual Fund gift, to benefit the Class of 2022 Fund for the Dining Commons. Our daughters have benefited from those who have given so kindly before, and now we have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on GA’s campus and on future generations. Above all, we are grateful for your support as we aim for 100% parent participation.
Thank you for your ongoing dedication to Greenwich Academy, for your thoughtfulness in reflecting upon GA’s influence in shaping the young woman your daughter is today, and for your commitment to the Class of 2022 Fund for the Dining Commons.
With GA pride and gratitude,
Tim Armstrong and Jim Carey
