Pat Young “Heart of Stanwich” Endowment Established

Monday, May 20, 2019

 On Friday, May 17 at the final Stanwich School parent and faculty party, Headmaster Charlie Sachs announced the successful completion of fundraising for the newly established "Heart of Stanwich" Endowment at Greenwich Country Day. The endowment will be launched with over $135,000 in donations from alumni families, friends and current families. A special thanks was given to Lynn and Jeffrey Slovin whose matching gift challenge lifted the fund up and over the initial goal of $120,000.

The Pat Young "Heart of Stanwich" Endowment was created by former parents and Trustees, Lorraine Gordon, Eileen Grasso and Liz Oestreich, who were inspired to continue the legacy of our Stanwich Faculty Humanitarian Travel Grants.  Each trip that our faculty members have taken over the past decade has been impactful to our students and to the world, from Rwanda to Northern Ireland to Ghana, Peru and beyond.  We look forward to hearing about the future faculty charitable endeavors that will continue to shape our school community, and to make God's world a better place!
