TOur schools are a core part of our Piedmont community – indeed, some would argue our students and our schools are the heart and soul of our incredible town. And supporting our schools is a deeply-held value for many of our friends and neighbors, including the three dedicated women who gave an enormous amount of their time and energy during 2019 to spearheading one of the most critical fundraisers for our schools.

As we approach the end of 2019, Nicki Gilbert, Amelie Kappes, and Emily Harrold, the volunteer co-chairs of the Piedmont Education Foundation’s Giving Campaign, share their thoughts on why they have invested so much time, effort and heart into Piedmont’s largest annual school fundraiser:

“There are many important reasons to contribute to the Giving Campaign and support Piedmont schools.  As the co-chairs of this year’s Giving Campaign, we have found that the generosity of our community is directly correlated with a positive, warm spirit throughout our town. This holiday season, experience the joy of giving and join more than 1,100 of your fellow community members who have already made a tax-deductible donation to support Piedmont schools, our teachers, and our children. Every dollar is needed and makes a difference.”
