As you consider how your family will participate in the Annual Campaign, our Head of School, Renee Owen, shares the following:
Strong communities are built upon one thing- sharing. Shared values, resources, stories, labor, and shared love. Rainbow is such a community. For those of us raised in a modern society- where sharing represented danger, loss, something to resist- our children are being raised differently at Rainbow. They are being raised to trust love.
This year, I ask you to think about community and trust. Donating requires trust. You’ve trusted Rainbow with the most precious part of your life- your child, but donating to the annual campaign requires a different kind of trust. Donating says that you trust we are who we say we are. It means trusting that the old adage “The more you put into it, the more you get out of it,” is really true. It requires trusting that when we invest in a stronger community, we ourselves become stronger.
