In a perfect world, we would not have to make this ask. The world is not perfect, so we do.

In the last 2 newsletters we discussed the need (requirement) for the Serra Alumni to raise '67k for the remainder of the fiscal year to reach the Alumni revenue goal of $251,000 for tuition assistance for 2019-20. In brief, due to financial reverses for some major donors and the postponement of the Cavalier Classic Golf Tournament, it became clear we would not make the revenue goal.
The situation. Most families are keeping up with tuition. Then there are those who applied for and qualified for tuition assistance/Alumni Scholarships. This is where we will fall short without you. Then comes surprize, surprize. There are those who have been furloughed or laid off. This was not in the plan. In addition, we have families who are small business owners who have had to close.
One donated a percentage of revenues.
To solve these issues we initiated the "ALL HAIL! campaign to reach the goal. To date we have raised $14,267 with Donations, ALL HAIL! Cards and Alumni Legacy Tiles.
Look what happened!
