To: The Rector and Trustees of St Paul's School, Concord, NH
Divest St Paul's School from Fossil Fuels
We, concerned alumni, students, faculty and parents, urge the Rector and Trustees of St Paul's School to responsibly divest endowment funds from the top 100 publicly traded, most offending CO2 emitting coal companies as soon as possible. As soon as possible, thereafter, divest from all remaining fossil fuel producing companies and reinvest in alternative green renewable energy.

Why is this important?
Because it is unconscionable to pay for our education with investments that will condemn the planet to climate disaster, and because our continued investments in fossil fuels violates both our School's founding Statement and our basic belief in goodness with knowledge, we call on St Paul's School to immediately freeze any new investment in fossil-fuel companies, and to divest within one year from direct ownership and from any commingled funds that include fossil-fuel public equities and corporate bonds. We would prefer to divest responsibly in top 100 polluters first.
How it will be delivered
We are aspiring to present the trustees with both a long list of electronically collected signatures as well as a reinvestment plan as soon as we reach 500 electronic signatures*. Please sign our petition!
