Charity Begins at Home #GivingTuesday
You chose McPherson Magnet School because you wanted the best for your children. You understand that Math, Science and Technology education gives your children the best opportunity to succeed in this modern world. When McPherson Magnet School was formed 20 years ago, McPherson Education Foundation, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit, was formed by parents along side the school, to raise funds, cultivate and grow the Magnet Focus. To date, the Foundation has raised and donated over $1 Million to the school and its teachers. None of this is possible without parent engagement.
This year, we had a successful STAR Mission, raising $57,000 towards the Outdoor Learning Lab. By executing the fundraiser in house and getting sponsors, we kept our expenses low, ensuring 95% of your money goes to the school or your students than any other fundraiser at McPherson. Although, short of our $100k goal, we are working hard behind the scenes to apply for grants and sponsorships to match your donations.
So far this year, the Foundation has donated $7500 for Campus Maintenance and Upgrades, and $6000 in Teacher Stipends to continue STEM Lab instruction for all of our elementary children. We’ve spent $3500 on Robotics and STEAM Night to provide hands on activities for you to experience as a family. Finally, we’ve given over $3000 to teachers directly, to support Science supplies, technology and training. All this and it’s only the end of the first Trimester!
On this #GivingTuesday, consider supporting your children’s education as Charity Begins at Home.
