Please check back on this page through the end of October as we track our progress on funding our Chromebook Challenge Grant. As of October 29th we are 62% of the way to our goal: (THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED THROUGH THE FIRST WEEK OF NOVEMBER!)
In place of our traditional Chip In For Education fundraising event for 2020 we have decided to do a socially distant, online, fundraiser instead. The Westhill School District reached out to us, as well as other organizations, with an urgent request for support. Due to a huge increase in demand and an equivalent budget shortfall, the district has a critical need for funding to purchase additional Chromebooks for their Chromebook loan program. The loan program exists to supply every student with an approved device to keep up with their virtual school curriculum. We have accepted the challenge from the school district and have pledged to provide them with 100 Chromebooks. In order to meet that goal we need to raise $30,000.
We are calling this our “Chromebook Challenge Grant” and your cash donations will be passed along directly to the school district in increments of $7,500 (25 Chromebooks) in order to allow the district to more quickly close the gap in their supply. The fundraiser is planned to run through October 31st but please do not put off your donation as the sooner we can reach our goal, the sooner the Chromebooks can be purchased and distributed.
We appreciate any level of support you can provide to help us fully fund our Chromebook Challenge Grant. Every dollar counts as we pool your donations and help to make sure that no student is left without a way to fulfill their educational needs this school year.
