Your support is critical to Booker T. Washington Academy’s success. Though we receive state charter school funding, we depend on our community to contribute additional, much needed funds to give our students the enrichment they need to become lifelong learners and active community members. There are many ways that you can be of support to us:
The Great Give
The Booker T. Washington Academy Family has an opportunity to raise up to $20,000 by participating in the Great Give. The on-line giving contest creates an opportunity for BTWA to earn up to $15,000 in matching dollars from the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven. Here’s how it works: If each family can commit to encouraging at least 3 reliable people to give at least $5 to BTWA, then we can win the grand prize for “most givers,” which earns a matching award of $15,000 from CFGNH. Last school year, BTWA earned the 2ndplace prize for largest increase in giving over the prior year. For our efforts, we received a matching gift of $5000, bringing our total to $10,384. The funds from last year were used to purchase additional Chromebooks for classrooms.
This year, each member of our staff has committed to getting at least 7 reliable people to give. The combined effort of staff and parents can yield as many as 1200 gifts for BTWA. Any funds raised will be used to enrich your child’s classroom learning experience. Together, we can make BTWA the most giving school in New Haven.
To make your donation, visit TheGreatGive.org between 8 a.m. on May 1 thru 8 p.m. on May 2, choose the Booker T. Washington Academy and use your credit card to donate. It’s that simple!
