In September I challenged the community to raise $20,000 this fiscal year. At the end of the first quarter I am thrilled to announce that we've already received $7450 in donations and that was all in the first quarter. Sincere thanks to those kind and generous individuals.
Now is the time to sustain this momentum and push ahead to reach our goal of $20,000. We raised $11,000 last year. Let's try to even double that this year.
Many, many thanks for donating over $11,000 using globalgiving in our first full year of participation. Your donations go directly to helping support our financial aid program and one child was able to attend GSP as a result!
Tomorrow is our first day of school for the 2011-2012 school year. I know there are many families in the area who would love to send their children to our school, but don't have the means. Please consider another donation if you've already given and if you're new to our community, please help us help others.
I challenge our community to raise $20,000 during 2011-12.
Thanks to the 17 donations received since we started using Globalgiving, we've raised more than $10,000 to support our kids. This money was used to subsidize our financial aid program for 8 kids in preschool through 3rd grade. We have many more families who are serious about joining our school, but our resources don't suffice. Please consider helping. These 8 families are thrilled with their experience at GSP and are excited to continue. I joined many of them on a field trip to the zoo this spring and was very pleased with their social, language and academic progress.
Please consider helping us by making a donation to our financial aid support program. Every little bit helps and thanks again to our donors!
With the end of the re-enrollment period now behind us, the finance committee is forced to begin reviewing financial aid applications for the 2010-11 school year.
The good news is that we have extremely high interest in our program from new families. Our continued goal is to make the GSP program available to anyone who really wants to attend.
The bad news is that many families interested in enrolling their children are not able to fully cover the tuition. Support for this effort through globalgiving is more crucial now than ever.
The financial aid committee will meet soon to review applications. Please support their juggling act between fiscal responsibility and financial aid applicants.
I look forward to the day when the school has significant financial reserves and/or an endowment to defray the lack of income for financial aid students. These children have every right to participate in our community. Please help make that a possibility.
