SDC Foundation's first fundraiser for the 2013/14 school year was a great success! Our October Fall Fun Fest raised $1800 which will be used to fund IXL subscriptions for 1st and language arts website the kids can use for interactive independent practice including fun reward incentives and a comprehensive reporting system teachers can use to track student progress! This is something the teachers really wanted and we are thrilled to be able to fund it using proceeds from the event.
Next up: Spalding Drive Charter Foundation's "Fueling the Future" Silent Auction
Entertaining "Parent Night Out" including food, beverage and a lot of "friendly" competition for auction items with other parents, SDC teachers, staff and administration. Please save the date and help us reach our goal of $15,000 to fund a mobile iPad cart! We need a lot of volunteers to help make the auction a success! Please contact us to volunteer for one of our auction committees: Donations, Food and Venue, Raffle or Event Day. Even if you can just get a donation or two, it would be greatly appreciated! Download a donation form and letter with tax ID.

Leverage your donation dollars with matching grants
Make your donation go even further! Many companies participate in donation matching programs. Some companies will even match donations made by retirees and spouses of employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, see the latest list of companies participating. If you don't see your company on the list, be sure to ask your HR representative if this is an option for you.
If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, fill it out and send it in with your donation. We will do the rest. The impact of your donation may be doubled!
Does your company have a grant program?
Many companies also offer grant programs for non-profits. Check with your HR Department to see if your company offers any of these programs, please contact us and let the foundation know. This is one of the best ways for us to raise money for the foundation, especially if their employees are also part of the Spalding Drive Charter family.
