EdUCate!’s main purpose is getting resources to the right people (students, teachers, schools) at the right time. To quote the president of Yale University: “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” Whether it’s for classroom textbooks or band uniforms, a specific department or classroom project, to say thanks to a special education professional, or to contribute in memory of a special person, EdUCate! offers many ways for you to make the difference in a child’s education. Your contributions are cumulative for each school year, so feel free to donate to all of the various programs we offer and we will make sure you are recognized for your total level of support.
Many Ways to Donate Online
Use my donation where it is most needed! These funds are split three ways to meet the needs of our schools. Typically, one third goes to multi-school projects, one third to teachers in the form of grants and one third to principals to be used as needed.
Contribute a dollar for each school day or each calendar day, whichever is most appropriate for your budget.
Our Goal: Maintaining excellence and rigor in our classrooms.
Our Dream: We would love for 100% of our school families participating every year.
