2020-2021 Fundraising Goal
Hello Brooks Families!
Wow! We can hardly believe it is already November, and Phase 2 of school rotations is right around the corner. What a year it has been! The Brooks Foundation is so proud of our school, and how families, teachers, and the entire Brooks Elementary family has adapted and adjusted to this most unconventional year.
The Brooks Foundation fundraising goal is also going to be a little different this year. The fundraising goal for the 2020-2021 school year is $40,000. We know this is a more conservative amount than in years past, but because of staffing logistics, we are able to lower the amount and still keep our 4 positions moving forward. This is unique for this year only.
As a refresher for returning and new families, the Brooks Foundation is a nonprofit whose mission - the sole purpose - is to fund additional teachers, support staff, and programs at Brooks that are not funded by the county and state. This school year, Foundation donations are funding FOUR positions. Brooks would not have these positions without the Foundation funds.
In an effort to be transparent and help you plan how you would like to donate, we thought a breakdown of the amount we need per student would be helpful. This year student enrollment at Brooks is around 555 students. To reach our goal we need a donation equivalent of $75 per student. If you are able, please consider donating for your student(s) and a classmate. A gift in an amount meaningful to your family is so appreciated and goes directly to the children at Brooks.
When considering your donation, please remember there will always be gaps in public school funding. The Foundation helps turn that critical funding need into an opportunity for our school...an opportunity to provide additional teachers and staff at Brooks, and give our children not just the education they need, but the education they deserve.
