A Message from Jennifer Dowd

Chair, Foundation Board of Trustees

Dear Epiphany Families and Friends:
 
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer-it already feels so long ago! Now that the first few weeks of school are behind us we would like to update everyone with the latest Foundation and School news. 
 
I am honored to take over the role of Chair of The Foundation Board of Trustees. I want to thank Kevin Greaney for all of his guidance throughout this transition and for his 3 years of outstanding leadership as Chairman. I look forward to leading a team that is working towards streamlining the message of our mission to maximize fundraising efforts and to working with school administration to maintain and bring in programs that set our school apart from others. 
 
We welcome Matthew Morningstar (Ethan, Grade 1) as the newest member of The Foundation Board of Trustees. We are always looking for parents who want to get involved with the Foundation’s fundraising efforts. Please reach out to me if you are interested in learning more about the work of the Board. 
 
It is with great pleasure that I introduce Shannon Harknett as our new Director of Development. Shannon has over 10 years of experience in programs and development at a variety of settings including Columbia University and The Churchill School and Center. Also joining the Foundation Office team as our Development Associate is Donna Stefanizzi. She has experience working within admissions offices in NYC private schools, most recently at Regis High School, and in roles as an executive assistant in the Investment Banking Industry. Mary Jean Fitzpatrick will continue her role as Business Manager. Thank you, MJ for your 20+ years at Epiphany! 
 
I want to sincerely thank everyone for their continued support of the Foundation and I look forward to seeing you at our Hall of Fame Induction and Reception on Saturday, November 3rd!  
 
Warmest regards,
 
Jennifer Dowd
Chairman, Foundation Board of Trustees
