AIM Campaign: Exciting Updates & August Events

On our way! Home of the new Student Activity Center in background.

Summer greetings! We hope you have been enjoying a wonderful summer with family, and we are also thrilled to welcome you back to campus as the Student Activity Center project is breaking ground/starting! Our AIM Steering Committee and the Sage Ridge Board have been busy on the AIM front, and we are excited for you to see our progress.

In the meantime, we are pleased to provide the following updates on our summer developments:

  • Our fundraising efforts have shown such promise that the Sage Ridge Board has received and approved a commitment from Heritage Bank of Nevada to provide construction financing for the Student Activity Center.
  • Montane Building Group, which worked with us on the original design for the Student Activity Center, has been retained to be our general contractor on the project.
  • The dirt subcontractor has been ready to go for some time now, but we are awaiting one final approval from Washoe County to begin the dirt movement. When you return, you will find our construction signage and fencing (and perhaps several pieces of large equipment) signaling the start of this incredible and transformational project. 
  • Thanks to our 100+ generous donors, we have raised $4.67 million to date with $426K to go to reach our matching grant. We are pleased to see our donor list growing to reflect broad support from our community: Board members, founders, current/alumni parents, faculty/staff, alumni, grandparents, extended families, and friends, as well as several new families that are joining our Sage Ridge community this 2021-22 school year. It is not too late to contribute to the Campaign - we strive for 100% participation across our school constituencies to show our commitment to this remarkable next step in Sage Ridge’s development. And we still need your help. Please talk to your family and friends. Every pledge counts, and you may spread your gift over several years.

Please mark your calendars! We look forward to kicking off the school year with several August events on campus:

  • 9 August - Welcome Back Event | 5:00-7:00PM
    • Please join us at this all-community event as Tobin Bechtel shares remarks on our Campaign progress and as we celebrate the exciting year ahead.
    • New and returning families: please look for the AIM Steering Committee members wearing red AIM ribbons to learn more about the Campaign and how you can get involved!
  • 24 August - AIM Donor Celebration 
    • We look forward to hosting a special evening event for all AIM donors to thank you for your help on this remarkable achievement. This adult-only celebration will include our Board, AIM Steering Committee, and all of our donors through 8/20. Details to follow by separate invitation.

New and returning families, please visit our AIM website to learn about our donors, hear from students and faculty members on what the Student Activity Center means to them, find out more about the Campaign, view the Student Activity Center fly-through, or to pledge/donate now. Please also share the website link and the AIM for the Future” video with grandparents, relatives, neighbors, colleagues, and friends who may want to learn more about the Campaign.

Thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support. We look forward to seeing everyone on 9 August!
