Dear Greater Latrobe Community,
I am honored to serve as President of the Board of Directors for the Greater Latrobe Partners in Education Foundation (GLPIEF) and am very proud that I have three daughters currently attending school in the district. As parents, we always want the best for our children. Our school district strives to provide a nurturing and exceptional learning environment driven by innovative programming that best meets the current needs of our children. In the coming weeks, parents and guardians will learn more about the Annual Fund and be invited to participate.
Greater Latrobe Partners in Education Foundation was formed in 2012 and our mission is to ensure the school district’s vision for generations to come through philanthropic support from those who share our Wildcat pride. It has been an exciting two years for our foundation. We launched the A+ Campaign in 2012, which has been a tremendous success. The purpose of the campaign is to raise funds to support the district’s projects and initiatives in three key areas – the Academics, Athletics and Arts. Currently, we have raised $4.3 million toward our $5 million A+ campaign goal through the leadership of several pacesetter gifts from local individuals, businesses and the Richard King Mellon Foundation. Included in the report are highlights from the Arnold Palmer Field House Dedication in recognition of his $1 million gift to GLPIEF. We have also received generous contributions from the district’s administration, faculty and staff, parents, board members and alumni.
I am excited about our successes to date and this report shares what the Greater Latrobe Partners in Education Foundation has accomplished because of our generous donors. I encourage you to visit the Foundation’s website at www.glpief.org to learn more or contact Jessica Golden, Director of Development, at [email protected] or 724-539-4220.
