In its third year of Centre Gives, the Education Foundation broke the $10K mark, raising $10,695 to directly benefit students and families. This year’s total will aid the district as it continues to respond to emerging priorities amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The district has been providing emergency support to district families facing urgent financial strain and supplementing the efforts of our Food Services team as they work to feed local students. Donations totaling $100,000 (prior to Centre Gives) are making this possible.

Also related to the COVID-19 crisis, the student services staff anticipates a significant increase in the need for mental health services in 2020-21, and the district will face major budget strains in the coming years. That’s why support for the Education Foundation is so important. Your tax deductible gifts are directly applied to areas where they are needed most throughout the district. All funds contributed through the end of its fiscal year on June 30, will be unrestricted and prioritized for these areas: emergency funds for families, mental health services and critical priorities identified by the district.

Thank you to the donors who contributed through Centre Gives and to ALL donors who have supported the Education Foundation during this uncertain and difficult time. You are making a difference for students and families!
