SUMMIT 2017-18 ANNUAL FUND
"My donation to Summit helps me feel like I'm doing my part to support the amazing education my children are receiving." ~~Summit parent
For our family, Summit has been a great fit. Our daughter thrived mostly because of the support she has received from her teachers, staff and administrators. What she learned at Summit goes well beyond the classroom and will serve her well for many years to come. We are all very grateful for that. ~~Summit parent
As a charter school, Summit is responsible for its own finances. State education funding has been relatively stagnant for years and has failed to keep up with the real cost of educating our children. Every year we need to raise additional money through our Annual Fund to augment the following:
Professional development initiatives
Educational tools for learning
Student activities and enrichment opportunities
Facility updates and improvements
Due to our families’ generous contributions, Summit can afford to provide competitive teacher compensation, innovative learning tools, and challenge activities that make our school so extraordinary. In addition, your donations directly fund enrichment items that make our learning environment at Summit unique and academically excellent.
Our goal this year is to raise $100,000. Our hope is for 100% participation and a contribution of $350 per child, knowing that each family’s ability to make a donation varies. Over the years we’ve had donations range from $1/day, to a family that donates $2,020 each year as a tribute to their child’s graduation year and smaller and larger amounts, including donations from extended family. We welcome donations of any amount; every donation makes a difference for our students and teachers. You can make a gift in a variety of ways.
