Keep Those Donations Coming!
We are still low on funds to support both the Homework Club and the additional tutoring that our some of our students desperately need. To fund this project through April 2024, FoDaC must raise an additional $6,000. Led by school teachers and Point Loma Nazarene University students, the program helps 40-50 students stay after school several times a week in a safe environment to get help with homework and studies in which they fall behind.
Last year, Homework Club helped over 40% of the students exit the ELD program, and Dana alone saw a 5% increase in State testing scores for both Math and ELA!
Donations you make this year are used this year. Your donations go directly to each classroom, library, educational programs, and assemblies. Without the generosity of your tax-deductible donations, these enrichment programs and special events are not possible.
