ANNUAL GIVING

The Annual Giving Campaign kicks off in October of each year, and it is the top fundraising priority of Seven Arrows Elementary. While tuition revenue covers only 80% of the school’s annual operating budget, we depend on your contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign to bridge the 20% operating budget gap.

As a donor to the Annual Giving Campaign, you will make a direct and immediate impact on your child’s education this year. Every gift makes a difference to the substance and quality of education students receive each year.

As every student benefits from the Annual Giving Campaign, our goal is that every single family participates in this all-school effort. Our inclusive community consists of families with different giving abilities and all are encouraged to support at a level that is meaningful for their family.

This year we aim to raise $1,000,000 with 100% participation! If you are ready to give now, feel free to use our secure online platform. You can also consider giving through our Facebook Giving Tuesday Initiative described below. The Annual Giving Campaign runs through December 31, 2021. Please do your best to pledge or donate before then!

If you have any questions regarding Annual Giving, please do not hesitate to contact Victoria Lerner and/or Sue Antoni. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!

WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFT?

Your donation helps pay for critical aspects of our daily operations, including teacher salaries,  tools in the STEAM lab, the ability to differentiate education, design thinking projects, and our cutting-edge fine arts program. Seven Arrows has been incredibly nimble and innovative, but the personnel, technology, infrastructure, real estate, and safety measures required to operate a hybrid program come with a tremendous cost. We look forward to partnering with our families and friends of the school to secure our goal and reach 100% participation.

Your participation in the Annual Giving Campaign also reflects our tight-knit community, sending a compelling message to foundations and corporations that parents believe in our institution and the Seven Arrows way of education.


FACEBOOK GIVING TUESDAY PROGRAM – TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 30

Seven Arrows is participating in a Facebook fundraiser where Facebook will potentially match our donations up to $100,000. This Facebook program is a great way to give your Annual Giving donation, especially with the possibility of your donation being partially matched. Please note that the match is not guaranteed. As much as we would love our gifts to be 100% matched, the reality is that only a small portion of them will be, so it is important that your contributions should be for the full amount you intend to give for Annual Giving.

In order to take full advantage of this opportunity, we are asking our community to come together on Facebook at 5 am Tuesday morning to donate. Giving Tuesday is an international day of giving and non-profits of all sizes participate. Facebook matching starts at 5 am that Tuesday morning and funds they allocate get depleted quickly… so we encourage our supporters to get logged in to Facebook as early as 4:55 am. Last year Facebook matched $11,000 of our donations. We truly appreciate the incredible amount of families who joined us for early morning donations. Thank you for considering the Facebook matching program in conjunction with this year’s Annual Giving gift!
