ANNUAL GIVING

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! As many of you know, the Annual Giving Drive is by far our largest fundraiser for the entire school year.

What’s the Annual Giving Drive goal?

This year, our Annual Giving Drive goal is to raise $50,000 with 100% participation from our Short Avenue community. Whether you can give $5 or $5,000, we want our families to know we are in this together. We are a Title 1 School, so giving what you can for those who cannot is important, gracious and appreciated beyond words. It benefits ALL our children, and your donation is 100% tax deductible.

Where does the money go?

These are just a few of the programs funded by FoSA. By contributing any dollar amount you can, you are helping to make a difference in our children’s future.

Planet Bravo – $28,500 Teacher Aides – $24,000
Spanish Music Program – $20,000 Two Field trip buses per grade – $7,000

How much should I give?

Below are the suggested dollar amounts that the nearby schools are requesting per child: Coeur d’Alene – $1,250; Walgrove – $1,200; Mar Vista – $1,200; Beethoven – $1500

We are asking each family to consider a donation of $750 per child + $250 for each sibling; however, any amount is welcomed.

Thank you for your support and your involvement! Here’s to a wonderful year!
