The Delores Barr Weaver Matching Challenge

NFSSE is THRILLED to announce the final initiative to help us reach our Angel of the Woods Capital Campaign goal that will allow us to build our new lower school building!


If NFSSE family and friends raise $500,000 this year, the Delores Barr Weaver Fund will MATCH IT DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR!
If you haven’t yet given to our Angel of the Woods Campaign, now is the time!

If you have given, perhaps you can see it in your heart to give again during this important time.
We are beyond grateful to Delores Barr Weaver who truly sees, understands and supports the vision we have here at NFSSE to be able to include even more students who have the dream to become the best version of themselves. For more details on this campaign, please contact Kit Thomas, Director of Annual & Capital Campaigns, at


About the Delores Barr Weaver Fund

Delores Barr Weaver established this Fund at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida in 2012 to provide grants to nonprofit organizations that do work she has supported over many years and to encourage others to do so as well. Mrs. Weaver has an extraordinary legacy of philanthropy, and she has provided transformative support to dozens of nonprofit organizations that uplift, enlighten and advance our community. Her establishment of the Delores Barr Weaver Fund ($50 million) in 2012 was the largest gift in The Community Foundation’s history.
