We embarked on an ambitious effort six years ago when we set out to raise $1 million for the renovation and expansion of the Sperling Cafeteria. Almost 30 families made that project possible, and over the following years more than 3,600 additional families from coast to coast shared philanthropic support to invest in University School of Nashville and its future.
As we expanded our goal to raise $28 million for endowment, facilities, academic initiatives, and the Annual Fund, each gift was a vote of confidence in USN and makes learning opportunities available at USN every day. We are proud to announce we exceeded our expectations and raised $29.5 million for One School. Our Future., more than doubled our endowment, supported professional development for faculty, grew financial aid for students, expanded community partnerships with an academic summer enrichment camp, and added thousands of square feet to our Edgehill campus.
In my time here as a student, alumna, parent, and board member, never have I been more proud to be a part of the PDS/USN community. We are incredibly grateful for and humbled by your support and love for our school. This philanthropic support will continue to sustain the mission and vision for USN. The pride that you’ve instilled will be ours forevermore.
