Throughout the academic year, members of the Baldwin Community are invited to attend and participate in a number of programs hosted by The Office of Advancement and Alumnae Engagement.
A strategic objective of the department is to maintain and deepen connections with all of our stakeholders in an effort to create lasting and mutually beneficial relationships. Some of the signature programs recognize our community members for their use of time, talent and treasure while others comprise both a fundraising and friend-raising purpose. At the core of the programming intent is the heartfelt aim to engage our Trustees, alumnae, parents, grandparents and friends in the life of the school. Our hope is that when our partners feel vested and loyal, Baldwin remains top-of-mind.
Golf and Tennis Benefit for the Bears
2016 marks the 43nd anniversary of Title IX, a U.S. law that affords equality for American women in sports and education. Research has repeatedly shown that when girls participate in sports they learn important life skills such as teamwork, leadership and confidence.
The Golf and Tennis Benefit for the Bears is designed to accomplish two important goals. Primarily, to inspire our student–athletes, our participants, and our community to take the lessons of athletic equality worldwide. Secondly, to raise needed funds.
This event is the only fund raising event for the Baldwin School Athletic Program. 100% of funds raised, less event cost, will directly benefit Baldwin’s athletic offerings and our student-athletes.
Annual Parent Gala and Auction
Alex Wake '05 Memorial 5k Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk
Alex Wake, a gentle, talented 14 year old student at Baldwin, was the victim of a horrific act of domestic violence that took not only her life, but that of her mother and grandparents on January 15, 2002.
Alex was an extraordinary young woman whose tragic death was an enormous loss to our community. Her contributions as a scholar, athlete and friend were invaluable. A hard working, intellectual Baldwin girl, she was empathetic and believed in building bridges and breaking down walls. Alex was a member of our cross country and track teams and this memorial run and walk is the medium by which we celebrate her life.
This event continues to provide our community at Baldwin and on the Main Line with a better understanding of and the resources available for women’s health, empowerment of women, and combating domestic violence.
In addition to funding an endowed scholarship in Alex’s name, a percentage of the proceeds will help underwrite Blue Gray’s other endeavors in support of Baldwin athletics, which include educational programs, facility upgrades and new equipment.
