Delaney Legacy Fund surpasses $150K, contribute by Sept. 1 for recognition

The legacy fund established at the Rancho Santa Fe School Endowment Fund to honor retiring Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent Lindy Delaney has received over 70 donations totaling $150,000 so far. RSFEF Development Director Barbara Edwards says, “It has been heartwarming to see the swell of support from both current and former school families, as well as community members for Lindy. She means a lot to this community.” Edwards adds, “It is wonderful to be able to honor Lindy in a way that benefits the district where she has spent her entire career.” While donations to the fund are always welcome, those received by Sept. 1, 2016 will receive permanent recognition on the R. Roger Rowe School campus. The suggested gift amount is $1,000 or more, but all are appreciated.

The Lindy Delaney Legacy Fund honors the service of beloved Superintendent Lindy Delaney as she retires after 30 years of service to the RSF School District. The original Rancho Santa Fe Community School Endowment Fund was set up by 10 school families in 1997 to support small class size and the long-term stability of the district and many of those founding families have made donations to this effort. The fund annually contributes to the district to support this mission and the Legacy Fund will do the same in Delaney’s name in perpetuity.
