Learn, Lead, and Serve in the Spirit of Mary's Magnificat

Class Agent Program

What is a Class Agent Program?

The Class Agent program is an extension of the Magnificat High School’s Advancement Team that brings awareness to and helps to raise funds for The Magnificat Fund. The Magnificat Fund is vital in providing crucial tuition assistance to more than 60 percent of our student body, making 21st-century advancements in our academic programs, and creating new athletic, co-curricular, service, and faith-based opportunities to meet the needs and engage the dreams of our students. This program consists of a network of alumnae class representatives who work with their peers in supporting Magnificat.

Class Agent Spotlight: Mara Van der Oord Myers '97 

"My motivation for being part of the Class Agent Program is to
connect my former classmates back to Magnificat and share the impressive work the current students and faculty are doing.  

I think Magnificat grows with more people talking up its strengths to friends and family members considering it for their education. 

I see the boys high schools' totals for their annual funds and they are significantly higher. It fires me up and I don't like seeing the disparity. I would love to see a swell of support for the Annual Fund from the current 8% participation rate, to a majority of alumna contributing. What a message that would send to students that alums are truly invested in their success. I give to The Magnificat Fund because I believe in the ability of our students and want to enable the teachers and faculty to provide the tools and experiences that are at the forefront of learning.  

My giving is also based in gratitude for what I took away from my Magnificat education and want to enable more young women to experience the same. I expect Magnificat to always be a place where everyone feels welcomed and able to attend regardless of financial circumstances, and if my contribution goes toward making that happen for a student, it will be extremely gratifying."

What is a Class Agent?

A Class Agent is a volunteer who represents their class and is a liaison between Magnificat High School and their classmates.

Goal:

The goal of the Class Agent Program is to increase alumnae giving for each class year and to provide updated contact information and class news to the Director of Constituency Relations whenever possible.

Class Agent Roles:

Your role as a Class Agent is to be a leader within your class and and to be willing to ask 10-15 classmates to join you in making a gift the Magnificat Fund. Every gift that is made reaffirms one’s commitment to the Catholic and holistic education that Magnificat offers to current and future Blue Streaks.

Commitment:

Class agents commit to volunteering 1-2 hours of their time per semester (total of 4 times a year). Your commitment to the program will end in September 2020.

Responsibilities:

1. Make a personal donation to The Magnificat Fund.
2. Choose 5-10 people from your class that you are willing to ask to make a gift to The Magnificat Fund. You may have to reach out to them more than one time throughout the year.
3. Send thank you notes when someone from your list makes a donation.
4. If you have suggestions for your replacement for the coming school year, please let us know!

**Magnificat staff members will provide reminders at the beginning and end of every semester regarding the status of your efforts.**
