BENEFITING: St. Paul's School - Bridges

EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2016

Bridges Baltimore

THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

A little over twenty years ago, St. Paul's School, where my kids attend, opened an outreach program for 18 inner city fourth and fifth graders. From that little program came Bridges, a program that now works with 200 Baltimore City youth ages 9-18, with sites at St. Paul's School and at Gilman School.

I'm writing to you - my friends and family – because on July 30, I turn 50, and I'm going to put up $50,000 for Bridges at St. Paul's School for a 1:1 match to your support.

I have become deeply committed to Bridges. It does fantastic work on a shoestring budget - both for Baltimore City youth and for independent school students. At the St. Paul’s Schools, for instance, 100+ high school students volunteer annually as after school and summer tutors to Bridges’ youngest students. 

The unrestricted dollars we raise leading up to July 30 will support priorities including:

·        A new city activity space for school year programs

·        A college scholarship to commemorate the legacy of one of my favorite people in the world, Larry Becker – a tremendous man in every way – who passed away in January

·        Resources that will help Bridges build its post-high school program for students ages 18-24

There are three ways to make a gift at the bottom of this email. If you choose Crowdrise, don't pay the fees (I plan to cover them).

Many of you give generously to a number of causes.  If the St. Paul's Schools and/or Bridges happen to be priorities, my only ask is that your gift to my birthday not impact your existing support. Please consider this separate and continue to invest in these great organizations.

Thank you so much for helping to support my 50th, this program, and this wonderful school community that have become so important to my family,

Doug
