YOUNG ALUMNI ADVOCATE
(GRADUATES FROM THE LAST 20 YEARS)
Episcopal relies on alumni and parent volunteers to contact classmates and families on behalf of The Episcopal Fund. Raising the bar each year, Episcopal's volunteers are vital to the success of The Episcopal Fund.
Class Agents: Alumni & Parents
The class agent is a key volunteer role for Episcopal. As a class agent for your class, you serve as the primary personal contact between the School and alumni or parents.
Class agents are expected to:
- Lead by example. Make a gift to The Episcopal Fund.
- Serve as a liaison between your class and the Annual Giving office.
- Solicit classmates/parent assignments for their gifts to The Episcopal Fund.
- Encourage participation!
Many gifts to Episcopal are doubled or even tripled because corporations and foundations match gifts to educational facilities made by their employees, retirees, and directors.
If your company or your spouse's company participates in a matching gift program, please obtain the matching gift form from your employer and mail it with your gift or pledge payment to the Office of Institutional Advancement.
Episcopal will certify receipt of the gift and return the form to the company. Episcopal credits the individual donor for the total gift. In fact, you can use your matching gift to increase your gift to qualify for the Advocate Council.
