Why I Give

Why I Give: Sarah and David Hehman (Oliver ‘23 and George ‘25)

"When you find a school community that supports, inspires, and challenges your children, you want to ensure its longevity and pass that positive experience along to the next family—that’s why we choose to give to SA. We give, both through volunteerism and financially, so that we can enhance opportunities for the benefit of our entire community. We contribute to strengthen the innovative and engaging curriculum and the incredible facilities and beautiful campus. But, most of all, we give so that every young person has equal access to the breadth and depth of programming that fosters curiosity, engages intellectually, honors diversity, prioritizes service, provides opportunities for risk-taking and spirited competition, and supports the development of lasting friendship. We’re proud to contribute to a community that equips young people with agency and optimism and prepares them to engage the world with empathy and ethics."

Every Gift Matters

Behind every gift to Sonoma Academy is a story. Some give because they were inspired by our brilliant faculty. Some give because they believe that education is the best investment there is. Some give because they know that a caring, community-oriented culture paired with academic rigor is the recipe for a school than can foster a new generation of creative critical thinkers and responsible, passionate leaders.
