ANNUAL GIVING UPDATE
The Annual Fund is Latin's largest and most important fundraising initiative, bringing in about 45 percent of all dollars raised each year. But we couldn't balance the budget without our sister campaign, the annual special event! Congratulations to the spectacular Auction this past Saturday – and to the hundreds of donors, guests and volunteers who made it such a remarkable success.

But while the Auction has wrapped up for the year, the Annual Fund continues! Here is the list of families who made Annual Fund gifts in the past month, joining the hundreds of others already invested in Latin. The second, fifth, and eighth grades showed especially large jumps in participation – congratulations!

Thanks to all of you who have joined the Annual Fund so far this year – your gift voices your support for our teachers, students, volunteers, and lead donors. Your participation demonstrates your faith in our school, and our community. Thank you so much.
