A message from the Broussard and Weaver Families, 2016-2017 eFund Chairs
Dear Friends of Episcopal,
We are honored to serve as Episcopal’s Chair Family for The eFund for 2016-2017. Episcopal has been a very special place to our family, the Weavers, for many years. Between all of us, we have experienced Episcopal as students, alumni, parents, faculty, past parents, and grandparents. We have seen much change and growth over the years, but some things have always remained constant – Episcopal's sense of community and tradition, its commitment to excellence in academics, arts, and athletics, and the values it instills in its students through nurturing the whole child. Episcopal is not just a part of you for the short time you are there as a student; it remains a part of you throughout your life.
This has truly been evidenced by what the Episcopal community has gone through since The Flood of 2016. So many in our community, including our beloved school, suffered devastating loss. In the aftermath, Episcopal responded quickly and showed us its strength; its strength of character in taking care of its families, faculty, and staff, and its strength of commitment to its mission by working so quickly to get the facilities up and running again. We know many of you have recently been very generous with the flood relief efforts, but we hope you will stretch your giving and continue to support The eFund at any level in which you can give.
The eFund, formerly known as the Annual Fund, is for everything we do at Episcopal and everything we can be. It is for everyone, every year. It is for the continued strength of Episcopal. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of Episcopal, and it is necessary to offset the difference between what it costs to educate a child at Episcopal and revenue from tuition. The eFund closes this gap.
We are truly grateful for all or our experiences at Episcopal. Our school has given more to us than we could ever give back, so by serving as The eFund Chair Family this year, we hope to help Episcopal continue to grow and remain strong for many generations to come.
Thank you for supporting The eFund.
