2013-14 Funded Programs
Fourth Annual Fund Drive, March - April 2014
Again in 2014, we hope to increase participation so that eventually every Mammoth area household with children in our schools will contribute. Whether the donation is large or small, we hope to engage our parent community to take ownership and pride in the success of our schools. There are many variables to providing an excellent education, but involved parents and community rank as one of the highest indicators of successful schools.
In working closely with the Mammoth Unified School District, the goal of the NOW Education Foundation continues to be raising funds to pursue excellence in education. Through partnerships, events, and annual fund drives we will have an impact on all of the school sites in alignment with the Districtís adopted priorities. Our focus continues to be in the following areas:
- Academic Flexibility - Increased Class Offerings
- Art & Music - Language Pathways
- College and Career Exploration - Technology
Our Annual Fund Drive is strategically set for spring to allow the district to integrate the funds into their plan for the upcoming school year. Excellence in public schools requires community support. We are all in this together and together we can make a difference for our students, schools and community. ACT NOW!
