The mission of the Alumnae Outreach Committee is to develop, extend and maintain the ongoing relationship between alumnae and the School, reinforcing pride in Spence, and by doing so, thereby enhancing alumnae fundraising potential. The activities of this committee include the Annual Alumnae Party, the Young Alumnae Party and cultural and educational events throughout the year. If you have great ideas on how to involve more alumnae in our activities, this is the committee for you.

Annual Fund Committee

Co-Chairs:
Sylvia Totah Calabrese ’69

The goal of this Committee is to increase alumnae participation in the Spence Annual Fund. Members assist in soliciting fellow alumnae via letters, e-mails and through our phonathons held during the year. Committee members focus on fostering alumnae understanding of the School’s fiscal needs and stressing the importance of participation in the Annual Fund, no matter the amount. New volunteers are always welcome, so if you are interested in helping with Spence’s fundraising efforts, please let us know.

The Committee sponsors events with students, parents and alums, providing an outlet for student support as well as networking opportunities. The Committee is also committed to continuing a relationship with Tapestry, the diversity committee of the Parents’ Association. Any interested alumnae are invited to join.
