The Annual Gift Giving Fund is the most essential fundraising effort at any charter school and involves all members of the community. Its impact touches all aspects of our exceptional program, providing resources and opportunities that would not otherwise be possible. We rely on state funds to support our programs and these are sorely insufficient. It is the thoughtful and generous donations from parents that supplements the budget and allows AEA to continue to deliver the challenging curriculum and supportive environment we have grown to know and love.
Every penny of your contribution benefits our CAMPUS and is tax deductible. The funds from the 2014 Annual Gift Giving drive allowed AEA to supplement purchases of supplies for our teachers, online curriculum, and to make much needed building improvements as well as supporting a FT nurse, buses, world language teachers and a FT dedicated PE teacher.
Every year we ask AEA families to step forward to invest in their scholar and help fill the gap. Our campaign starts NOW and will go until November 1st and our goal is to raise $250,000. We are looking for 100% participation and asking every family to consider donating $500 or more, which can be paid as a one time donation or monthly payments of only $42 per month (less than a dinner out for a family of 4).
Please know that any level of support is valued. We encourage you to give to your comfort level.
This year part of the AGG funds will be used to support our programs which are unique to AEA and sets us apart from our district schools, like our language program, PE program, and our technology program. Part of the funds will also go to campus improvements on the Campus that are essential to create a safe and nurturing environment for our scholars. We will also take a portion of our funds towards improvements parents would like to see added to AEA. Keep your eyes open for a survey so you can voice your opinion.
No matter what the size of the gift, the quality of life at AEA is enriched through the generous support offered by parents, grandparents, and friends to the Annual Gift Giving Fund. Every gift counts! Every gift matters!
