Black Alumni Alliance

Germantown Academy’s Black Alumni Alliance is being formed in partnership with the school and interested alumni to create opportunities for those who identify as Black and/or African American to extend and enhance their relationship with GA. The intent of the Black Alumni Alliance is to foster inter-generational relationships between Black alumni, highlight and celebrate professional and personal contributions, and create meaningful engagement opportunities between members. The Black Alumni Alliance will also build purposeful connections to faculty, students, and the life of the school, enhancing Black alumni pride, participation, and philanthropic commitment to Germantown Academy. 

All GA alumni who identify as Black and/or African American are welcome as members of the Black Alumni Alliance and there are no forms or fees. In addition, the Black Alumni Alliance will have an advisory group made up of alumni volunteers who coordinate with GA’s Office of Institutional Advancement to provide guidance on programming, communications, and engagement opportunities. The Advisory Group may also be called upon to provide support and feedback to GA administrators with regard to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programming and initiatives. 

Responsibilities of Advisory Group members will include:  

  • Participate in monthly meetings, virtual or in person, each year,
  • Serve as a resource for the Black Family Alliance (BFA) and Black Student Alliance (BSA) and assist in creating mentoring opportunities for current students,
  • Liaise with the Alumni Society Board and the larger Black alumni community by sharing information and encouraging engagement with each other and with the school,
  • Show support and serve as an ambassador by attending at least one BAA event/programming, as well as one larger all-alumni event/programming and,/
  • Support the school through Annual Giving.
