4/1/13-4/30/13: Final Annual Appeal to reach our financial goal for the year. We need to raise $15,000 more in order to reach our goal, and ensure that we have funds to pay for an additional full-time teacher for the 2013-2014 school year (a STEM Lab instructor that will work with all classes while they attend the Lab), fund continuing education for our teachers, support technology needs at Garrison Mill, and fund the last few field trips.
We are soliciting local businesses and corporations for financial support. We have already secured our first official GMEF Business Sponsor. This local business has pledged over $30,000 over the next several years to help Garrison Mill secure a Science Lab and Teacher! Who is this generous business investing so much in our children’s futures? Stay tuned for the big announcement! Do you own or know of a business that might want to get in on the action? If so, contact Angie Haimes, email@example.com.
