Be an ambassador for SPS
Volunteers like you are a crucial part of our success. Our volunteer program is designed to forge connections among the form, and between the form, the School, and the alumni community. There are many ways to donate your time, whether you decide to be a form agent or form director, start a Pelican Network, or organize an SPS gathering. Explore the information provided here to discover how you can be an ambassador for SPS, or contact the Alumni Office at alumni@sps.edu or 603-229-4770.
In the fall of each year, volunteers are encouraged to attend the Alumni Volunteer Weekend held at the School. This meeting is devoted to discussions with the Rector, Trustees, Alumni Association leadership, faculty, and students; it serves to educate volunteers about current life at the School.

Form Director

Form directors are elected to facilitate connections among formmates and between formmates and the School. The form director represents his or her form on the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association and is encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting of the Alumni Association in New York City in April of each year. Form directors are elected to a five-year term, usually just before their quinquennial reunion at Anniversary Weekend.
Form directors have these responsibilities:
  • Keep formmates up to date on the happenings at the School
  • Inform formmates of alumni events
  • Reach out to formmates during the year to collect formnotes for Alumni Horae
  • Support the Annual Fund by assisting the form agent(s) and by making their own gifts early in the fund year
  • Organize the form's reunion in partnership with the Alumni Office
  • Work with the Alumni Office to coordinate the election of his or her successor prior to the form's quinquennial reunion
For more information please review the form director job description.

Form Agent

The form agent is the principal fundraiser of the form. Form agents work in conjunction with form directors to orchestrate form donations to the Annual Fund.
Form agents have these responsibilities:
  • Collaborate with the form director on form communications
  • Solicit gifts from formmates for the Annual Fund
  • Be leaders in the giving process by making their own gifts to the Annual Fund early in the year
  • Consider each formmate's giving history and assign an appropriate target gift for each
  • Send two appeal letters to formmates per fund year
  • Followup letters with phone calls to formmates to request target gifts
  • Write a thank-you note to each formmate who makes a gift
For more information please review the form agent job description.
