Thanks to the many families and community members who participated, we matched and exceed our $28,000 Community Challenge Grant during Donation Days!
Overall, we raised $148,000 in donations and monthly pledges from October 1-16! We are really pleased to announce that we DOUBLED the number of monthly donors who have opted to fund our schools’ computer and music programs through regular monthly payments. BECOME A MONTHLY DONOR
The $148,000 raised during Donation Days is about 42% of the amount needed just to keep our music and computer programs intact next year. Currently, our elementary students only receive instruction in music and computers one time every 2 weeks, because that is all that $312,000 raised last year was able to fund (along with our 5th grade band program, a supplemental band period at Taylor, and a district-wide technology program).
Let’s do better for our kids by raising the $500,000 we need to expand these programs to weekly instruction with additional teachers. Or, even better, let’s reach 100% participation and raise $1,000,000 to expand our programs and fund classroom size reduction! Our neighbors are doing it, and so can we!
A big THANK YOU to those who have already donated this year to keep Millbrae schools strong! For those of you have not yet donated, consider donating today!
