Thanks to the support of our generous donors the Rim of the World Educational Foundation raised a total of $25,311.96 during this year’s Give BIG campaign. This amount included online and offline contributions, matching donors and prize dollars. The Foundation received BIG congratulations from Supervisor Janice Rutherford for having collected the most donations in her 2nd District. That honor garnered the Foundation a bonus of $1,000.
In addition, the Foundation was awarded two countywide prizes: $700 for coming in fourth in total donations and $1,500 for coming in fifth for the number of unique donors.
The Foundation’s board members are grateful to each and every donor. Their support helped us increase our donations from $11,275 in 2016 and exceed our 2017 goal of $15,000. And more of you made contributions: 280 as compared to 197 last year.
These donations will help the Foundation continue its support of three programs in the Rim of the World Unified School District: individual grants to each of the five schools, the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program and the ROP (Regional Occupation Program) classes.
