Alumnae Add 20 Challenge

In honor of her twentieth and last year as Headmistress of Louise S. McGehee School, Eileen Powers has issued a Challenge to McGehee’s Alumnae! “Alumnae Add 20” invites our beloved alumnae supporters – 822 of them last year - to increase their gift to Annual Giving over their previous gift by Adding 20 - $20, $200, $2000 or 20%. Eileen will match the increased dollar amount (or first time gift) 1:1 up to a total of $20,000.
 
Example:
Louise gave $100 to McGehee last year. Adding $20 this year brings her gift to $120. Eileen will match the $20 increase to make a total gift of $140 to McGehee.
 
Louise decides to double her $100 gift to $200 – Eileen will match the $100 increase to make a make a total gift of $300 to McGehee.
 
Why increase your gift to McGehee? Every dollar of Annual Giving goes directly to supporting future McGehee Leading Women. Eileen remarks, “These girls are our alpha and omega. Louise McGehee established her school to teach girls to think, to question, and to lead. And I believe we need McGehee Leading Women in our society more than ever.”
 
This wonderful Challenge gift in her last year is a true testament to Eileen’s belief in and love for McGehee School and her alumnae. Thank you Eileen, for this wonderful challenge gift to the school!
 
The Currence Challenge
 
Inspired by Eileen’s leadership gift, Mathilde Villere Currence ’89 and Richard M. Currence, Jr., our Board Chair, have introduced a further challenge to our young alumnae. The Currence Challenge will match dollar for dollar any first gift from alumnae who graduated during Eileen’s tenure – 1999-2018 – to a total of $10,000! Thank you Mathilde and Richard!
 
Example:
Young Louise, who graduated in 2010, makes a $20.10 gift to McGehee. The Currence Challenge will match her gift so the school receives a total gift of $40.20.
 
Dr. Louise graduated in 1999 and makes a $500 gift, which the Currence Challenge will double her gift so the school receives a total gift of $1,000.

If you have a question regarding your last Annual Giving gift please contact Kathleen Banta at 504-274-4917.

Carolyn Wood Lorio '77, Board Member, Decade Club, Edna Heft Society

I continue to support McGehee's because I credit my McGehee years for molding me into the person I am today.  My McGehee education was truly a gift - one for which I will always be grateful - and I want to assure that the girls who come after me benefit from the same gift.
