FSA Annual Fundraising Campaign --- Our Goal is 100% Participation
Dear FSA Community,
Our annual fundraising officially kicked off this week. We had a wonderful start to our campaign and we have already raised a total of $90,657.50 so far this year.
Our goal is to have 100% participation from our families to reach this year's annual fundraising goal of $250,000. If 100% of our families make a gift (regardless of size), I (Principal Sener) agree to be slimed! :)
The money raised from this campaign will be used for the third phase of our campus expansion including an athletic field among other improvements.
Any person donating $1,000 or more will earn a brick that will be placed at the entrance of our school.
Please contribute to our annual fundraising campaign by visiting our donation page here: https://donate.fultonscienceacademy.org/donate
Remember! Your gift is a direct investment into our school community and its members which includes you!
Thank you for your support of our school! #strongertogether
Why does FSA Have an Annual Fund?
Every day at Fulton Science Academy, we continue our journey towards becoming a top school in the nation by providing an innovative STEAM curriculum that benefits each individual student. Our journey is just beginning and you are an important part of it!
How Do I Donate?
A new, convenient website has been created for secure online gifts: http://donate.fultonscienceacademy.org/donate
What is the Annual Fund?
The FSA Annual Fund is the cornerstone of Fulton Science Academy’s fundraising efforts. This crucial fund is an important part of our school’s journey. Gifts enable us to invest in important resources for the children that are not covered by tuition alone. Your gift shows confidence in our school’s mission to inspire confident, compassionate students and build leaders who demonstrate exceptional character.
Who Benefits from the FSA Annual Fund?
Our precious students are always our primary focal point and our very top priority! Every single child brings such uniqueness to FSA, and we see every child as a gift! We teach our students about the impact one person can make in life. One unique question posed during a class can spark lively debate. One smile can turn someone’s frown upside down. One teacher can make a life-long impact on your son or daughter. The actions of one can positively impact so many others! Giving is a wonderful and contagious experience. A gift to the FSA Annual Fund benefits the entire FSA school.
Why Should I Give?
We hope you would donate the FSA Annual Fund because you believe in the work of our school, you support the passion and dedication of our faculty, and you can see the positive impact an FSA education is having on your child. Contributions to the Annual Fund will be put to use right away and will help pay for expenses that are not covered by tuition alone such as extracurricular activities and building expansion.
How Much Should I Give?
Please consider giving as much as you can! The gift of education is a gift that keeps on giving. To help us reach our goal, a donation of $300 per student is suggested, but every gift helps! Whether your contribution is $10, or $10,000, giving offers a positive statement of your belief in FSA and pride in your family’s FSA experience. This year, our gifts have ranged from $10 to $25,000 each.
When Should I Donate?
The earlier we receive your donation, the sooner we can put it to use to benefit our students. While we encourage all families to make their pledges by December 31, Annual Fund payments are accepted until June 30. For maximum year-end tax benefits, we suggest a donation before 12/31/19.
Can Others Donate?
Yes! Please share our donation link with friends, family, and others.
I Already Pay Tuition. Why Am I Being Asked to Pay More to the School?
Put quite simply, given our competitive rates, if we relied on tuition alone to fund the many wonderful attributes that make FSA so special, our tuition costs would skyrocket. Most prestigious private schools like ours rely upon robust Annual Funds with contributions from families that directly support every aspect of school life.
Your gift(s) to the FSA Annual Fund supports the people and programs that make us an award-winning private school. Through these tax-deductible gifts, we are able to recruit and retain talented teachers, offer small class sizes, provide cutting-edge technology, enjoy award-winning extracurricular teams, and fill our beautiful new campus with laughter, learning, and life-long friendships that form while studying here.
Is FSA Able to Receive Matching Gifts from My Company?
Absolutely! FSA welcomes corporate support through sponsorships and generous matching gift programs. Please ask your employer about Matching Gift Programs that support K–12 schools. This is a great way to double and sometimes triple your gift to FSA. Please check with your employer.
Are Donations Tax Deductible?
Yes. As a registered nonprofit, all gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. If you make a gift online, you will receive a customized thank you email that can also serve as a receipt for your donation.
Are There Incentives to Donate?
Although we would hope your primary purpose for donating is to support the campaign and show your long-term investment in our school and the education we are so honored to provide to your child(ren), we also recognize the value and value of celebrating when milestones are reached. As such, we have established rewards ranging from dress down days to catered lunches to ice cream socials, depending upon the percent of parent participants. Best of all, if 100% of our families make a gift (regardless of size), Principal Sener has agreed to be slimed! :)
