Advancement Team


Admissions, Alumni Relations, & Fundraising

Mary Assini - Executive Director

Mary returned to the Cape Eleuthera Foundation in 2018 after working at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Mary's adventures with Eleuthera began back in Spring 2000 when she joined The Island School as a student.  Mary returned to Eleuthera in 2006 to support The Island School journey and build the Alumni Program. After three years on-island, Mary shifted stateside to work with Cape Eleuthera Foundation until 2015.  Mary is excited and inspired to be back with the Foundation and leading a team that is securing and enhancing the Foundation's mission and vision for years to come.


Taylor Hoffman - Director of External Affairs

Taylor returned to The Island School after working in marine science in California and Florida, where her passion for welcoming young people into the program she participated in during high school (Spring 2006) has brought her to lead the Island School admissions team.


Kelsey Moody - Associate Director of Fundraising and Stewardship

Kelsey joined the Cape Eleuthera Foundation in the fall of 2015 as Director of Fundraising and Stewardship and is a Spring 2006 Island School alumna.  After graduating Trinity College with a major in History, Kelsey moved to San Francisco and worked as a financial analyst for a private wealth management firm before joining the Foundation team in Boston.


Anna Becker - Admission and Alumni Relations Associate

Anna joined the Cape Eleuthera Foundation in the summer of 2018 as the Admissions & Alumni Relations Associate. Born in Virginia and raised in Colorado, she studied strategic communications and Spanish at Washington State University. She continued her world tour following graduation and spent a year living in Spain while traveling around Europe. With a new home-base in Philly, Anna is excited to be a part of the team working to offer students experiential learning opportunities and impactful educational experiences at the Island School. 


Alexis Welch - Advancement Administrative Assistant

Originally from Annapolis, MD, Lexi joined the Cape Eleuthera Foundation in the summer of 2018 as the Advancement Administrative Assistant and is a Fall 2012 Island School alumna. After receiving her B.S. in Criminal Justice and Corrections from Texas Christian University, Lexi moved from Fort Worth to join the Foundation team in Philadelphia.  As an Island School alumna, Lexi’s passion lies with ensuring that other high school students have the same opportunity to experience growth through experimental learning as she did during her time on Eleuthera.

Alumni directors lead us 

Do you want to be part of our board of directors and play a significant role in the vision, direction and future of the organization? We are reaching out to all Island School, Cape Eleuthera Institute, Gap Year, and Deep Creek Middle School alumni, and others with significant connection to us who would like to invest in leading the organization.

 


You can join in

Alumni directors in the past have:

  • At least two years of experience in the work force
  • Demonstrated service to the place after their student or volunteer experience at Cape Eleuthera
  • Skill set or demonstrated interest relevant to our work
  • Consistent participation in the annual alumni giving campaign
  • Acknowledged the financial obligations around travel to meetings and other board engagements (travel assistance is available for young alumni directors)

Next steps

On expectations and timing: you'll attend the three in person board meetings - January in Florida, April on Eleuthera, October in Boston - and you'll make a gift commitment in line with your philanthropic budget. We prefer to know about your interest in March for a summer start to a 3 year term, with a first meeting in October.

We ask you to reach out to us by email: alumni (at) islandschool.org  We'll share some sense of how the board operates and what it might mean for you. After you've done your due diligence, if it's something you'd still consider, we'll let you know what materials to submit to join the pool for consideration. We have a limited number of spots and fill them according to the timing, skills, and background that best fit the mix of needs of the board, which evolves over time.

Cape Eleuthera Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity founded in 1997 to support education and research, and has established and supported educational programs starting with The Island School in March 1999. Our Boston-based team recruits students and raises funds to help young people realize their potential, gain perspective on cultures different than their own, and make a positive impact on their world. The Island School, Deep Creek Middle School, and Cape Eleuthera Institute are among the long-term projects awarded grants by our Board of Directors in accordance with our mission. Through these programs, high school students learn to live on a green campus powered by renewable energy and explore academics outside of traditional classroom walls. Local students from Eleuthera solve real-world problems as part of their middle school training. Researchers generate knowledge on resource management and sustainable development to inform local decision makers. We hope you will join us.
