Faculty Friday: Sara McGuire

Meet Sara McGuire, Director of Development and Yearbook Co-Sponsor!

Sara has served as the Director of Development for Roycemore since April of 2017, however, she has been in fundraising for the better part of the last 21 years, between writing and directing plays, raising kids, and leading troops of Girl Scouts. Philanthropy and service have always been a part of her life. Beginning in childhood when volunteering for organizations her parents belonged to, she jokes that she has a Ph.D. in envelope stuffing. 

Sara wears many hats at Roycemore. As Director of Development, she leads fundraising for Roycemore’s Annual Fund, which directly supports day-to-day operations and programming. She is also managing Roycemore’s Capital Campaign for the future Innovation Center. Finally, she leads the Auction Committee to create Roycemore’s annual Scholarship and Financial Aid Fundraiser (Join us on April 30th!). 

Sara is also the Alumni Liasion, facilitating connections with past Roycemore students, making sure that they feel the support and community of Roycemore well beyond their years as a student. 

Sara helps coordinate parent volunteers at Roycemore through the Roycemore Family Association. The aim of the RFA is to continue building the close community the school nurtures. The RFA helps welcome new families to Roycemore and provides many volunteer opportunities and events that help engage families. 

Sara also shares the responsibility of the Yearbook with her fellow educator, Charlotte Freccia, Upper School English Teacher. After many years of creating Annual Reports for various organizations, she matches these skills to the yearbook process and helps students understand the power of print, and telling a good story.

Sara says, “Roycemore is a place where my talents are valued, and I can pass that on to the students, alumni, and families that I have the honor to work with.”
