Dear Falcon Families:
We are honored and excited to be serving as FWCD Fund Chairs for the 2022-23 school year. FWCD holds a special place in our hearts. We returned to Fort Worth in 2019 so our children, Aidan ’22 and Lainey ’26, could have a Falcon education. Our move to FWCD has been one of the best decisions we have ever made.
Donations to The Fund have recently enhanced our school in many ways. It has allowed the school to continue to add heightened security measures: this time in the form of the east perimeter fence. Other improvements provided by The Fund include upgrades in the Upper School Science Center, new bleachers in the Square Gym, and renovated restrooms in the Rosacker Stadium concessions building. There are also less visible – yet equally important – ways that The Fund contributes to our School. From faculty professional development to updated software for our energy management system, The Fund makes our school a better place!
With deep appreciation, we are thrilled to announce that Leslie and John David Moritz, with their daughters Meg ’15 and Anna ’20, have, once again, generously offered a 1:1 match for new and increased gifts to The FWCD Fund by June 30, 2023, up to $300,000. Your gifts, together with this challenge match, ensure that the next generation of Falcons have the opportunities of a stellar classroom education, superior athletics, and dynamic arts.
There are countless reasons why our family loves the FWCD community, and we hope you will consider donating to The FWCD Fund for all the reasons that you and your family love FWCD. We genuinely want The Fund to be a platform where the entire School community enthusiastically gives to support the many reasons that FWCD is a special place.
Please join us and Back the Plaid! We are looking forward to a fantastic year.
Emily and Reid Shackelford ‘93
