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.
Alex Wake '05 Memorial 5k Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk
The Alex Wake ’05 Memorial Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk is held annually at The Baldwin School to raise awareness of domestic violence and to celebrate the life of Alex Wake ’05 who was herself a victim of a senseless act of domestic violence.
Annual Parent Gala and Auction
The Gala is the School’s largest parent-lead fundraiser. Year-long efforts involve parents in a variety of leadership roles, which result in generous sponsorships and hundreds of silent and live auction donations.
Each spring, alumnae, parents and friends of the School enjoy an evening of celebration, fundraising and fellowship. A special theme is developed and is woven throughout all programming and advertising.
Proceeds from the Gala provide outstanding academic and athletic programs, scholarships, tools for our faculty, a rich community environment and much more.
Golf and Tennis Benefit for the Bears
2016 marked 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.
