The legacy fund established at the Rancho Santa Fe School Endowment Fund to honor retiring Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent Lindy Delaney has surpassed $100,000 in donations since it was announced last month.
The Lindy Delaney Legacy Fund honors the service of Lindy Delaney as Superintendent as well as a physical education and science teacher in the district for 30 years (1986–2016).
“Lindy is very special to our family and has done so much for the community,” says Donna Walker, a former school parent and past PTO Executive Committee member. Walker’s husband and former Endowment Chair Mark Pulido added, “It is wonderful to be able to honor Lindy for all she has done in a way that will have a meaningful impact on future RSF students.”
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. It annually contributes to the district to support this mission and the Legacy Fund will do the same in Delaney’s name in perpetuity. While the suggested gift is $1,000, all gifts are welcome. The fund also welcomes larger donors to set up matching gifts to increase its impact.
