Serendipity Circle 2009-2011

The Serendipity Circle allows Serendipity to recognize those individuals, corporations, and foundations that provide annual support for both on-going operations and critical initiatives. The support we receive from the members of our Circle fills the gap between the basic educational program funded by tuition and the enriching holistic approach that encourages our children to realize their potential. Starting in 2017, major gifts to Serendipity will support our Believe in Me initiative.

Serendipity’s Circle acknowledges three levels of donor gifts. The names of these levels draw on Serendipity’s core beliefs as a RE-Education program, with the levels mirroring the flow of our work with children. First, trust is established, allowing skills to be cultivated, and culminating in a return to the community prepared to positively contribute.

The staff, board, and children of Serendipity express our deep gratitude to the donors named below.
