Contributing Chargers: Ritchie Family

by Olivia Segalman, , Associate Director of Advancement for Community Engagement and Events
Shorecrest’s Mission is augmented by the generosity of our parents, grandparents, alumni and friends who support the school philanthropically or by effecting change locally, globally or right here at Shorecrest. We call these community members Contributing Chargers. This week we are pleased to spotlight Lower School parents Abby and Jon Ritchie. The Ritchie Family joined the Shorecrest Community in 2018, and are parents to Natalie '33 and Michael '35. 

Abby is a dedicated partner of the School as a member of the Advancement Committee, through her time with Shorecrest Community Association (SCA). As community leaders who support the school with contributions of time, skills, and philanthropic gifts - they share why Shorecrest is important to them. 

Why is Shorecrest important to you?
Shorecrest values and nourishes the traits that make my children who they are.

What does giving to this community mean to you? 
We are collectively so proud of and invested in each other’s children. We want to see them flourish in their own uniqueness. I love being on campus with other parents for traditions like Poetry in the Park and Fall Festival. 

How do you think your support will impact current and future Shorecrest students?
Shorecrest has done so much for my kids' creativity, confidence, and sense of belonging. Any amount I give just accelerates their growth. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. 

The impact of Contributing Chargers like the Ritche Family, along with other members of our community, can be felt every day.
