Four Classes Have Reached 100% Participation!

Thank you to our families who have made a gift to Audubon Charter School’s Annual Fund campaign! 53% of families have already made a gift, and we have raised almost $54,000!

We encourage families to make their gift by tomorrow Friday, May 16, which will be our end-of-year Annual FUNd Day, if they have not already done so. The class(es) at each campus that has the highest participation by that day will receive an end-of-year ice cream party. Four classes have already reached 100%, and we hope for more to reach 100% by the end of the day tomorrow! Please see the list of class participation levels below.

Our goal is for 100% of families to make a gift, and we ask that each family please make a gift in an amount that is meaningful to them. Gifts of $5 or more count towards the party.

Students are encouraged to wear an Audubon t-shirt or Audubon’s colors of red, white and blue on Annual FUNd Day. A list of class participation levels to date is included below.

The easiest way to make a gift is online at www.auduboncharter.com (click “Support”, “Annual Fund”). Or, families may deliver their donation to the office at either campus.  Checks should be made out to Audubon Charter School. One gift can be made per family, and it is not necessary to send a gift for each child.Gifts can be made until May 31; however, gifts made after May 16 will not count towards the ice cream party. Gifts already made this year count towards the party.

 

Thank you!

We are tremendously grateful to our families who have made a gift to Audubon Charter School’s Annual Fund campaign! 50% of families have already made a gift, and we have raised almost $50,000. Thank you!

We encourage families to make their gift by Friday, May 16, which will be our end-of-year Annual FUNd Day, if they have not already done so. The class(es) at each campus that has the highest participation by that day will receive an ice cream party. Our goal is for 100% of families to make a gift, and we ask that each family please make a gift in an amount that is meaningful to them. We encourage families to make a gift of “the gap” ($130 per child) or more if possible. However, what is most important is that everyone makes a gift, and gifts of $5 or more count towards the party.   When we approach foundations to ask for a larger gift, they often want to know that our own families support the school before they will make a donation.

Students are encouraged to wear an Audubon t-shirt or Audubon’s colors of red, white and blue on Annual FUNd Day. A list of class participation levels to date is included below.

The easiest way to make a gift is online at www.auduboncharter.com (click “Support”, “Annual Fund”) or by clicking on the link to the right.
