RSF Scholars’ Circle Members Recognition Event

The Rancho Santa Fe Education Foundation recognized its Scholars’ Circle members at a special evening reception held March 12 at the Powell residence. Membership in the Scholars’ Circle requires a contribution of $35,000-plus, usually in the form of a three-five-year pledge.

These leadership level contributions play a critical role in providing the base of fundraising for the Education Foundation’s Annual Giving Campaign, which allows the Rancho Santa Fe School District to plan ahead for curriculum, programs and staffing commitments. The Education Foundation is grateful for families who have the capability and desire to make the school part of their philanthropy for the benefit of their own children and all R. Roger Rowe School families. There are currently 102 enrolled Scholars’ Circle families at R. Roger Rowe School, including 23 new families this year.

The evening’s “East Meets West” theme featured Asian-inspired food provided by Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille.
