NEWMANfund (Advancement Office)
Newman’s most important annual fundraising initiative is the NEWMANfund
. The Advancement Office welcomes parent volunteers who are willing to help educate other parents (via phone and email) about the importance of the NEWMANfund
and to encourage support to the School. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Zach Frosch, Director of Annual Giving (ZachFrosch@newmanschool.org
Volunteers work closely with Martin Benson, Chair of the Visual Arts, and Maritza Mercado-Narcisse, Chair of the Performing Arts. Help is needed with arts events including such tasks as ticket sales, concessions sales at Newman-based performances, organizing, setting up, cleaning up receptions or cast parties, and ensuring uniforms are cleaned at the beginning and end of each year. Help is also needed promoting receptions and exhibitions to the Newman community. Volunteers are encouraged to give input for strategic planning for Newman arts.
BINGO AND BASKETBALL
This is a community building and fundraising event that engages families in all four divisions of the School. This fun bingo event for the entire family takes place during a Varsity Basketball Game Day. Volunteers are needed to solicit prizes, handle hospitality, coordinate volunteers, help with set up and break down, send acknowledgement letters to donors, and have fun!
Book Fair is a beloved Newman tradition and a celebration of the love of reading. We are excited to welcome the Newman Book Fair back to campus this year in the Reynolds Ryan Art Gallery. The chairs select the products and the books from Octavia Books and help with planning, making decorations, staffing, and encouraging sales. Duties span from August through November. If you love to read or want to get to know parents from all school divisions, this is the job for you!
CARNIVAL UNDER THE STARS
Carnival Under the Stars is held at City Park Amusements and open only to the Newman Community during the event. Volunteer assistance is needed with soliciting sponsors, working the event, deciding on promotional items, and sending acknowledgement letters to the sponsors.
