ANNUAL GIVING UPDATE
"Why should I donate to Friends of Reed?"
Here's what we're working on and what you can expect to see at Reed this school year:
In conjunction with administration, the district, and our board member, Reed will be getting a campus refresh. New privacy fencing, benches, and updated lunch pavilion area are in the works, as are plans to upgrade landscaping, revive the garden, and add 2 murals. Friends of Reed is helping plan and contributing to these projects and more with your Annual Giving dollars.
Additionally, FoR provides each academy with funds for field trips and additional supplies as requested. If you have any suggestions for how to spend your generous donations or would like to be a part of the plan, please email email@example.com!
We have already collected over $26,000, thank you! It's time to kick it into high gear so we can reach our goal of $50,000 by the end of December! We're aiming for 100% participation at any level that works for your family, whether that’s $10, $100, or $1,000.
Check out these incentives...
Den Leader $500+: A Reed travel coffee mug, tote, & magnet
