June 14, 2011: "We thank you!" ... a new campus icon

On June 3rd, the Board of Trustees hosted a groundbreaking and unveiling of the beautiful new structure to recognize leadership support of The Les Frost Cornerstone Campaign. More than 90 donors who have pledged or given $25,000 or more to the campaign will be recognized with a bell, inscribed with their family name, on this permanent structure.  The structure bears th campaign name as well as the opening words of the school prayer, "We Thank you God For All of Your Blessings..." a reminder of how blessed we have been by Les Frost's leadership, and how blessed we are by the generosity of so many members of the St. Matthew's community.

May 10, 2011: Campaign Progress Report

The Les Frost Cornerstone Campaign for the St. Matthew's Parish School Endowment was launched in September 2010, with a goal of adding at least $5 - 6 million to the school's endowment fund. The campaign is chaired by Jim Jackson, Callene Momtazee, and Jason Silletti, all members of the St. Matthew's Parish School Board of Trustee.

Thanks to generous early commitments from members of the Board of Trustees and other leadership donors, we had raised more than $2.7 million by January 2011.   On May 21, 2011 as we honor Les Frost and his leadership of St. Matthew's at the gala celebration at LACMA, we will make our next campaign progress report.
