Meet our Director of Advancement!
Kelly Elias, our new Director of Advancement, comes to Millwood with a storied history of working with schools and non-profit organizations throughout the Greater Richmond area. She has her Masters in Education and after a decade in education, Kelly then took on challenging roles in business entrepreneurship and resource development led by her passion to serve others.
Kelly currently lives in Chesterfield with her husband, Joe, two children, Gideon and Gabriel, as well as their two dogs Dylan and Keller. Kelly and her family love the RVA area and all that it has to offer. She's excited to join the Millwood community and through her role she looks forward to helping Millwood continue to grow and thrive!
A parent-school partnership is the most powerful alliance for children. When there is a mutual commitment to providing the best education possible, students thrive. This commitment requires everyone to contribute in whatever ways they can. As an independent school, we depend on the generosity of parents and friends to volunteer time and expertise, to participate in school life.
Unlike a for-profit business whose mission is to make money, our mission is to provide an extraordinary education. Today, that is a very expensive enterprise. Our advancement opportunities help you by keeping tuition as affordable as possible; by reaching outside of our school to gather additional resources; by asking more of those who have more; and by giving more to those who have less.
