The Education Foundation is announcing a fundraising milestone: $15,000 have been raised during the annual campaign. This unlocks three $5,000 matching gifts from campaign sponsors – Galin Education, Keva Sports Center and SwimWest – and brings the total raised to $30,000.
“We are excited to unlock three matching gifts just three weeks into our campaign,” said Purna Byraiah, chair of the Foundation. “We thank everyone who has contributed and our matching sponsors for their strong support of MCPASD schools! The community’s support brings us closer to our $40,000 campaign goal.”
Each sponsor agreed to match donors’ gifts, up to $5,000, for contributions made by the campaign deadline of Nov. 15. In addition, a fourth sponsor is matching donations, up to $4,000, made to the Weekend Food Program by Oct. 31.
The campaign is raising funds to support three areas – Arts, Equity and Grow Your Own – based on the school district’s priorities for the year. The Foundation’s annual campaign page includes more details about how funds will support the district’s schools. When making a donation, donors can also designate funds for the Weekend Food Program, which provides healthy snacks and small meals for MCPASD children in need.
