The Power of a Vision Campaign
“...because we know that now, more than ever, the world needs this school.”
Campaign Co-Chairs José Alvarez P’10, ’12, ’18 and Suzanne McGilvray P’10, ’12, ’18 imparted these simple, powerful words when we launched The Power of a Vision: a Campaign for Commonwealth in the fall of 2018. Named in tribute to Charles Merrill’s founding hopes and dreams for Commonwealth, The Power of a Vision is the largest and most ambitious campaign in the school’s history. And just as our teachers and students go above and beyond in the classroom every day, the Commonwealth community came together to not only reach but exceed the campaign goal.
We set out with a goal of $12.5 million. You—alumni/ae, parents, grandparents, students, faculty, staff, and friends—donated $13.45 million.
Celebrate With Us!
Soon we will invite the Commonwealth community to a celebration to acknowledge their generosity and recognize their impact. Stay tuned! Questions in the interim can be directed to Alisha Elliott '01, Director of Advancement.
