Partners Board announces new giving program

The John Hay Partners Board is pleased to introduce Friends of John Hay, a new giving program for our school.

Friends of John Hay will provide families interested in donating to John Hay the opportunity — beyond the Move-A-Thon and the Auction — to make secure online donations.

As many of you know, the John Hay Partners Board raises money each year to “bridge the gap” between our allotted funds from the District and our actual costs to operate this great school. Our two big fundraisers, the Move-A-Thon and the Auction, directly support the following programs:

  • Small Group Instruction in reading and writing in 1st and 2nd grades
  • 1:1 Reading Intervention via Sound Partners Tutors
  • Math Tutors for grades 2-5
  • Pathways (Advanced Learning Opportunities) for grades 3-5
  • Spanish for grades K-5
  • Music for grades K-2
  • Art and Music supplies
  • Library and PE supplies
  • Classroom and technical supplies

Read this important financial break down of how your donations are put to work around John Hay to support the above programs.

While we have an excellent track record of fundraising success–thanks to the hard work of so many parents, volunteers, teachers and administrators–the District has been reducing budgets city-wide, and John Hay is not immune to these cuts. Now more than ever, we need your support to continue these important programs for our kids.

Our new Friends of John Hay giving program is designed to diversify our fundraising abilities and provide families with donation options. This program, available here will  allow you and your family to set up a secure monthly pledge, or make one-time donations – whatever best suits your budget.

We are aware that John Hay families “give” in many ways, and we appreciate all that you do to make our school such a wonderful place to learn, to teach and to grow. The 2010-2011 school year promises to be both exciting and challenging, and we look forward to keeping the momentum going, building upon our successes and continuing to support each individual student on his or her Pathway to the Stars.

Gifts to Friends of John Hay are 100% tax deductible, and no gift is too small.
