n March, anticipating the effect of the market decline on the School’s investments that might decrease the value of the endowment by as much as 30% by June 30, the Administrative Team implemented a cost savings plan to reduce total spending without impairing the quality of the educational experience for our girls. Academic department chairs and program managers were asked to approve expenditures only for essential activities, over-time work for hourly staff was restricted, professional development grants for the spring and summer were not awarded, and the use of email and other internet communications with parents and alumnae reduced costs for printing and postage. With the cooperation of all segments of the school community, the year ended with a surplus of approximately $332,000 in a total budget of $18.8 million. Last month the Board of Directors was informed that the total return on the endowment during the 2008 – 09 fiscal year was –22.4%. While nothing to cheer about, this is considerably better than last spring’s prediction of –30% and better than the actual decline reported by several major universities in the neighborhood of –30%. As of the publication of this report, the value of the endowment was approximately $44 million. The Board’s Investment Committee has worked with an outside consultant to restructure the asset allocation of the endowment funds and to find new asset managers to pursue a more defensive position. Fortunately alumnae and parents continue to fulfill pledge payments made during the Centennial Campaign and the investment portfolio has performed better in recent weeks. Going forward the Administrative Team and the Board of Directors have taken steps to restrain expenses, including an across-the-board 3% reduction in department and program operating budgets and deciding not to fill one position vacancy. To protect the ability of the endowment to provide essential support, we have reduced the spending rate from 5.3% to 4.5%. Although we still face serious challenges, we have made significant progress and we are doing everything we can to maintain outstanding learning and personal development experiences for Madeira girls. That The Madeira School will emerge from the recent economic turmoil with its commitment to nurturing adolescent girls intact is due to the dedication and hard work of the entire campus and parent and alumnae community.

he Madeira School’s endowment generates a significant

portion of the School’s annual operating revenue. The endowment, held in trust and invested in perpetuity, provides

support for the many programs and offerings that comprise the outstanding education the School offers. The Board’s skillful management of gifts to the endowment has resulted in a fund that (as of the publication of this report) was approximately $44 million. The endowment underwrites important institutional priorities such as financial aid to girls who qualify for admission to Madeira but need assistance with tuition, competitive salaries and benefits to attract and retain outstanding faculty, and the innovative academic programs and Co-Curriculum that make the School a leader in girls’ education. Madeira’s investment policies seek long-term returns that will provide the School with annual support while also maintaining growth for the future. We thank all those who have had the generosity and vision to establish endowment funds at Madeira. A named endowed fund or named scholarship fund can be established with a minimum gift of $50,000 and is an excellent way to honor a classmate, honor your treasured time at Madeira, or show your continuing support of the School. Donations can also be made to existing endowment funds.

When Mary “Mimi” van Beuren Seavey ’52 passed away August 29, 2008, her dear friend and classmate, Katharine “Kitty” Jarvis Blair ’52, decided with the help of fellow Madeira alumnae to create an endowed fund to honor Mimi. The sisterhood of ’52 pulled together for this endeavor, and got a head start on their 60th reunion class fundraising efforts. The Mary van Beuren Seavey and the Class of 1952 Endowed Fund helps underwrite participation in extracurricular and school-related social activities for any student receiving financial assistance. These extra funds help provide Kitty financial aid students to round out a Madeira education and Blair ’52 experience. The minimum amount to establish an endowed fund is $50,000. Under Kitty’s direction, the Class of 1952 has raised over $64,000 to date in cash pledges. The Mary van Beuren Seavey and the Class of 1952 Endowed Fund will link Madeira girls from the past, present, and the future.

Moira Archbold O’Connor graduated from Madeira in 1968. She was always an outdoors woman, growing up on a farm in Virginia and then ultimately moving to Montana to enjoy the big blue skies. Throughout her life, she was a rider and lover of animals. Her cousin and classmate, Mary Hufty ’68, recounted, “We were both happiest in the barn. We cried together, laughed together and grew up to be independent together.” Tragically, Moria died of leukemia while in her early fifties. Her family wanted to establish an endowed fund in memory of Moira and knowing her lifelong love for riding, it seemed right to create a fund directed to help the riding program. Led by Mary Hufty ’68 and Frances Hufty ’34 (Mary’s mother), they established the Moira Archbold O’Connor ’68 Riding Endowed Fund which provides income to offset expenses in the riding program at Madeira. At the conclusion of Mary’s 40th reunion, she reached out to classmates from 1968 and asked if they would like to contribute in Moira’s memoMary Hufty ’68 ry to this endowed fund. Family, friends and 14 classmates raised over $75,000. The School is grateful that Moira’s family and friends chose to honor her in an enduring way that keeps her memory alive on campus and helps the riding program.

arly in the spring of 2009, two generous alumnae expressed their commitment to the riding program at Madeira by offering to match dollar-for-dollar gifts to the program up to a total of $300,000. Shortly thereafter, an informational meeting was held at the

School to explain the financial challenges Madeira faces in offering a high quality program. Then a formal letter was sent announcing the Riding Challenge Grant, to which ninety-five donors responded. The result was that more than $600,000 was raised, with each donor becoming a Friend of Riding. These funds will support the riding program and also give the School time to implement a business plan that will include community partnerships and have as its goal a program that eventually will

become self-sustaining.

Donor Profile: Elizabeth Meehan Hewitt ’92 An enthusiastic contributor to the Riding Challenge Grant, Elizabeth Hewitt feels that riding gave her the confidence to pursue ambitious goals for her life and career. As an investment manager at The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Elizabeth understands that challenge grants are a powerful way to leverage donations. In fact, her own gift to the riding program was enhanced by the generous matching gift program provided by her employer. She believes the riding program at Madeira gives the School a unique market niche among independent schools in the greater Washington, D.C. area. “For Madeira to offer a rigorous academic program and Co-Curriculum, and also give girls who want it an opportunity to ride, is a wonderful and special thing for a school to do,” she explained. Elizabeth continues to be an avid rider who travels each weekend from her home in Manhattan to ride her horses in Dutchess County. Now that she is a member of the Board of Directors, where she serves on the investment committee, Elizabeth looks forward to using her professional experience to strengthen the School’s finances. “It’s been a pleasure,” she says, “to give back to the place that gave me so much.”

uring the 2009 –2010 academic year, Dr. Elisabeth Griffith will travel around the country to bid farewell to alumnae and other members of the Madeira community and to tell them

about what has long been among her highest priorities since becoming Headmistress in 1988: strengthening residential life at Madeira.

During her tenure, Dr. Griffith has worked to fulfill a vision of The Madeira School as a residential learning community, in which adults committed to educating girls live on campus and act as teachers, coaches, role models and care givers. Thanks to a grant from The Mary Mae Foundation that Dr. Griffith helped secure, we now have an opportunity to bring her vision to completion. The Foundation is helping Madeira construct five charming, compact and energy efficient cottages to be lived in and enjoyed by Madeira teachers and their families, a project that costs $2 million (due to the cost of site preparation, utilities and landscape).

In Dr. Griffith’s final year at Madeira, please join us in building “Cottages for Community” as a vital embodiment of her devotion to girls and to the faculty who teach and nurture them. She has helped transform Madeira into a vibrant community in which girls, as well as their teachers, thrive. Now you can help us create a lasting legacy of her visionary and inspiring leadership. If you would like more information on this campaign or would like to participate, please contact Louise Holland Peterson ’75, Director of Development, at (703) 556-8219.

he Madeira Fund, our annual giving program, provides the foundation for our fundraising at Madeira. The School counts on the recurring annual gifts from our alumnae, parents, past parents, grandparents, and friends to cover approximately 10% of the operating budget. In this way, gifts to The Madeira Fund are like a living endowment and provide the School with the flexibility to support whatever programs may need attention. Despite a tough economy, nearly 1900 donors supported The Madeira Fund, an increase of 200 donors over last year. We are thankful for your steadfast support and that you prioritized your giving towards Madeira. The 2008 –2009 Madeira Fund raised a total of $1,455,781. Current parents contributed $290,161 and had a participation rate of 72%. Alumnae contributed $1,010,409 and had a participation rate of 26%. Reunion classes raised a total of $214,114. Our 349 leadership gift club members contributed $1,238,718 this year or 85% of the total dollars raised. Our Parents’ Fund was very successful. We extend our thanks to Annalisa and Dave Parks, P’10, ’12 for their efforts to engage the parent community. Please see their letter on page 35 recapping the results. Your financial contributions are important to operating the School, but of course they also represent your ongoing connection to the School. Thank you for keeping Madeira “strong in her girls.”

Madeira Fund Donor Profile: Phoebe Lang ’85 I have given to The Madeira Fund every year since graduating. It never occurred to me not to give and not to support the School. Yet it is really only now that I am in my early 40s and raising a teenage daughter that I have come to fully realize and appreciate the values that Madeira ingrained in me. Madeira strongly helped shape my attitude toward what makes a strong, independent, and significant woman. As I watch my daughter navigate her way through her teen years with confidence and grace (and, yes, some bumps!), I know that I have passed along to her that Madeira spirit. After recently returning from a summer medical program at Brown University, she thanked me for doing such a good job preparing her to go out into the world on her own. In some ways I feel I could thank Madeira for helping me become the mom that I am today.

Madeira Fund Donor Profile: Margaret Bodine Wallis ’58

Anne Palms Chalmers

Ever since graduation I have supported Madeira to the best of my ability, even in the lean years, and despite pleas for increased gifts from my former schools, college and children and grandchildrens’ schools. Despite only going to Madeira for two years I have made giving to The Madeira Fund one of my top giving priorities. As a member of the Alumnae Association Leadership Council I have witnessed first-hand the importance of giving girls the opportunity to experience a single sex education in today's world. Unfortunately when it comes to annual giving, girls’ schools are often overlooked so it is vital that we as alumnae make it a top priority.

Madeira Fund Donor Profile: Misti Muhkerjee ’84, P’13 Madeira has been an important thread in the core of my education and my value system. I learned at Madeira how to study, how to stretch, how to compete with myself and how to cultivate relationships with exceptional women who still play an integral role my life. I learned about institution and legacy, and the responsibility we all have for supporting not only our past but also our future. Madeira is a part of my identity and will soon be a part of my daughter’s. I am privileged to play a small role in contributing to its longevity.

I give to Madeira because I am truly privileged to have been given the opportunity to attend an institution with dedicated faculty and staff, and an extensive network of women. The worth of a Madeira education is infinite — there is no donation I could ever give that would cover what the School has given me. The annual tuition starts to look small in comparison to what Madeira provides each of its girls, both on the campus and beyond its white fences.

he Alumnae Association Leadership

Council (AALC) supports Madeira’s mission by connecting and involving

alumnae with one another, and affirming their unique identity as Madeira women.

Laura Walton Hirschfeld ’84, President, Alumnae Association Leadership Council

Often behind the scenes, members of the AALC are working to support the School through a variety of programs. This year was extremely successful with 24 members focusing their efforts on Stewardship, Affinity and Volunteerism. The AALC worked on recruitment, identifying best practices and creating new materials to help revitalize both the Class Agent and Class Secretary Programs. Affinity members worked to identify and reengage affinity groups for on and off campus opportunities with alumnae and students. In addition, since Madeira women have a history of community involvement, AALC members chose to highlight the charitable efforts of our alumnae through monthly profiles on the Madeira Minute. AALC members represent 12 states and the District of Columbia and span 7 decades from 1942 through 2003. During the September 2009 annual campus meeting, we welcomed 7 new members to the AALC. As President of the AALC, I encourage you to get involved with Madeira and would welcome hearing your suggestions and interest in participation. In the words of past Alumnae President Eliza Shumaker Soyster ’41, we give “thanks… to the Madeira girls, past, present and future, who, out of gratitude to this School, freely give their time, skills, money, and ideas to assure the continuity of the kind of education for which Madeira is known and in which they believe.” I consider it a privilege to roll up my sleeves with these committed, energetic and focused Madeira women and believe our work has reengaged alumnae and strengthened the School for the next generation of Madeira girls.

he Parents’ Association Leadership Council (PALC) had another busy and successful year. In addition to the established and ongoing events, parents eagerly stepped up to help with the Co-Curriculum program.

Katherine Armstrong, P’10, President, Parents’ Association Leadership Council

Parents continued to help with established events: such as Orientation, the Campaign Closure Celebration, Parents’ Weekend I & II, the Valentine’s Day Celebration, and the Faculty/Staff Appreciation Luncheon. Additionally, parents volunteered throughout the year with Admissions; as athletic team parents; the performing arts; the school store; and ongoing faculty/staff appreciation. This year an ad hoc Co-Curriculum Committee, which included parents and former parents, created an online database of Madeira community contacts at Capitol Hill and elsewhere as well as assisted in an interview exercise for the sophomore class. The PALC Executive Committee decided to establish a standing Co-Curriculum Committee to continue to support the Co-Curriculum program. Our goal from the start of the year was to build on the themes of previous years: inclusion and diversity. I think we were successful on both counts, but I believe those themes will continue to drive the Parents’ Association in the future. Our leadership for the coming year includes parents who wanted to continue in their roles for another year, as well as new parents. We count ourselves lucky to have a number of parents in the PALC who have already had one Madeira daughter graduate and are now volunteering while their second (or even third) daughter is at Madeira. I am pleased with the leadership for next year because I believe that in addition to diversity and inclusion an important new theme for next year will be continuity. Thank you to all of Madeira’s parents for your involvement as members of the Parents’ Association, for your time and effort volunteering and for all of your contributions to the Madeira community.

e are happy to report that the 2008 –09 Parents’ Fund raised $290,161 with 72% of the parents participating.

This year we introduced The 20% Club which gives credit to anyone who donates 20% or more than their gift last year. We had 69 parents join The 20% Club for an increase of $54,743 over last year. As parents, we know that the importance of the Parents’ Fund cannot be over estimated. Income from tuition alone does not address the important needs that make a Madeira education extraordinary. The Parents’ Fund, as a portion of The Madeira Fund, helps fill this gap enabling programs and resources to educate our daughters and prepare them for lives engaged in meaningful service and leadership. On behalf of the faculty, administration and students we thank you for your generous contributions. Your gifts do make a difference. We seek your continued support next year as we again work for Madeira’s success.

There are too many reasons to list, but let’s think mathematically and reduce the question to its simplest form. A quality education is the result of a balanced equation. On one side is a challenging, holistic learning experience made available

by a caring community dedicated to the most valuable asset we have: our daughter. On the other side is a tuition fee. As is the case with nearly every independent school, the two sides of the equation don’t balance and the deficit is on the side with the dollar sign. We try to do our part to balance the equation by giving what we can, because we are in a partnership with Madeira for the education of our daughter. One doesn’t shortchange one’s partner; one invests in the commitment.

Why do I support and give to Madeira? I wholeheartedly believe in single-sex education for high school students. I had done some reading and observing of all-girls’ schools prior to Renee attending Madeira. I chose Madeira because of the curriculum and the beauty and safety of the campus. I knew I would have to deploy during Renee’s tenure at Madeira. Madeira made me feel comfortable with leaving Renee while I was serving in the military. I believe it is important for parents to support their children’s educational endeavors. I am blessed to have a job that allows me to spend some time on campus participating in different events. I also want Renee to know that I am available to her even though she is a boarder. Renee is my greatest gift from God and I have to make sure she is well taken care of. I support Madeira but I am also visible on campus to ensure Madeira is taking care of Renee. Madeira is an older facility and I know it is expensive to run. Tuition is steep but I want the School to continue to offer opportunities for other girls. My monetary gift is probably minimal compared to other donors but I think every dollar counts towards educating another girl as well as taking care of the facility. I am treated respectfully at Madeira by everyone. It is always a joy to drive on campus even when I have to deal with a challenging situation. The faculty and administration are responsive to my questions and concerns. It is easy to support Madeira because of the responsiveness. Madeira promotes a healthy environment for collaboration, cooperation and community. There is also a willingness to address diversity and challenges.

I gave to the Parents’ Fund at Madeira because I was asked and I believe that I should not withhold giving when I am asked and able to give. I had no idea how much more was needed beyond tuition to support Madeira but perhaps if I had quickly looked at the numbers, I could see that more than tuition is needed to fund the vast and glorious campus, the labor inten-

sive Co-Curriculum and athletic programs, the salaries for teachers and staff, the tuition assistance provided and more. I so enjoyed asking others to give to The Madeira Fund. I had lovely conversations with those who attended Madeira (some many years ago), their spouses, their parents and their children. I could sense the rich imprint of Madeira’s fine academic tradition and its strong sense of community in those very conversations. It is my hope that all will give to The Madeira Fund’s distinct and vital purpose.

hile annual gifts benefit Madeira’s current programs, planned gifts help secure the School’s future. Planned or deferred gifts enable you to maximize your charitable giv-

ing while meeting your estate planning goals; they also provide you with substantial tax benefits and, in some cases, guaranteed income for life. There are several types of planned gifts: Bequests: You may provide for Madeira in your will a specific amount, leave a percentage of your estate to the School, or designate the School as a residual beneficiary. Life Income Gifts:There are several types of life income gifts to consider: • Charitable Gift Annuity: A contract that provides you and/or your designated beneficiary income for life or for a specified number of years. Current annuity rates range from 5 –10½ percent, depending on the age of the annuitant. • Pooled Income Fund: You transfer assets to a fund managed by Madeira in which all gifts are “pooled” for investment purposes with the income shared proportionally among participants. • Charitable Remainder Trust: You transfer assets to the trust in return for an income stream for life or a specified term of years. Upon death, or the end of the term, assets are distributed to Madeira. • Charitable Lead Trust: You transfer assets to a trust and Madeira receives the income stream from the trust. At the end of the trust, the principal reverts to the donor or another beneficiary. Life Insurance:You may name Madeira the owner and beneficiary of a policy and, if you continue to pay the premiums, you will be credited for the amount of the premiums in the years they are paid. You may also name Madeira as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs):You may name Madeira as the beneficiary of your IRA. All taxes are avoided when IRAs are contributed by bequest to a non-profit organization. In addition, if you are age 70 ½ or older, you may make charitable gifts directly from your IRA accounts without incurring income tax on the withdrawal. Real Estate:You may contribute a primary residence or vacation home outright, or reserve the right to occupy your home for a term of years or for life. Donors who have made a planned gift to The Madeira School are recognized through membership in The Greenway Society. We are deeply grateful to the members of the Society for having the generosity and foresight to take a serious interest in the School’s future and contribute in this powerful way. If you would like to become a member of The Greenway Society, or if you wish for more information about planned giving opportunities, please contact the Development Office at (703) 556-8221.

Greenway Society Donor Profile: Jennifer Evers Shakeshaft ’91 Even before Jen Shakeshaft ’91 was married and became a mother, she made certain to include Madeira as a beneficiary in her will. “The School was a transformative experience for me,” she says. “I went there shy and not sure who I was and left feeling confident that I could do anyJennifer Evers thing.” In fact, her love of the Shakeshaft ’91, Chinese language began at Julia Shakeshaft, Madeira. She continued to and Tom Shakestudy Chinese in college and shaft now teaches it at an independent school near her home in Chicago. Being a member of The Greenway Society gives Jen the opportunity to honor Madeira and do her part to help secure the School’s future. She is fortunate to come from a family in which philanthropy was openly discussed, so she understands the importance of supporting and sustaining the institutions that have played a key role in her life. Jen urges any of her classmates at Madeira and other alumnae of her generation for whom the School was also transformative to consider membership in The Greenway Society. “It’s a wonderful way to give back to a place that gave us so much … and to express our confidence that Madeira will continue to do for other young women what it did for us.”

n Saturday, September 26, Madeira Board members, the Alumnae Association Leadership Council, Class Agents and other volunteers who support Madeira had the opportunity to gather for lunch and a State of the School delivered by Headmistress Elisabeth Griffith. We are indebted to all our volunteers for their selfless commitment of time and talent. Also on this special day, we dedicated The Second Century Society donor recognition panels, located in the foyer of the Student Center.
