2018-2019 Annual Giving Campaign
Since the establishment of the Beverly Cleary School, we have been committed to providing outstanding education to our students who walk through our doors. Our school, staff, parents and community have a strong commitment to set high academic standards for students. However, this year we have faced some serious challenges with overcrowded middle school classes and reduced program offerings in the area of music and electives.
On behalf on the Beverly Cleary School Foundation, we are asking our parents to go beyond the traditional fundraising campaign. We are asking our community to think about what their hopes and dreams are for Beverly Cleary School students and staff. The dreams are endless and well within reach: additional staffing, music for all grades, and more middle school elective options. While it might take us a few years to get all the staff and programming we want, our families can help us today by supporting the Foundation.
How can a donation help build our dreams during this year’s appeal?
First, a simple donation to Annual Giving Campaign can help fund those dreams of additional staff and curriculum programs. If every family committed to a $100 donation annually, we would automatically raise $50,000.
Second, think about how a recurring donation could up the ante on fundraising. If every family donated $25.00 a month for the Giving Campaign (8 months total), we would DOUBLE our funding. $25.00 a month, over 8 months, turns into a $200 annual gift. With over 500 families in the school system, we could raise over $100,000 without even lifting a finger!
Lastly, I encourage you to join the Foundation for a quick Q&A on Tuesday, November 13th at 7:00 pm right before the General PTA meeting at 7:30 pm. We will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about the importance of the Foundation’s work, especially the Annual Giving Campaign and the Spring Auction.
