Dear Short Avenue Friends and Families,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are very excited to be back on campus with our AMAZING community! As many of you know the Annual Giving Drive is by far the largest
fundraiser for the entire school year. There are no gimmicks, no wrapping paper, or candy to buy. We are
simply asking you to donate what you can, to help make Short Avenue the best it can be for our children.
Every dollar counts and every penny donated is put right back into our children’s education. It is this community of family and friends that make Short Avenue a caring and dynamic environment. Not to mention, a solid foundation for our children to learn, grow, and flourish in education, connection and community.
What’s the annual giving drive goal?
This year our annual giving drive goal is to raise $100,000. With a 100% participation from our Short Ave
community. Whether you can give $5 or $5,000 we want our families to know we are in this together. We are
a Title 1 School so giving what you can for those who cannot is important, gracious, and appreciated beyond
words. It benefits ALL our children and your donation is 100% tax deductible.
Where does the money go?
Every single dollar goes directly to your child’s education. By contributing any dollar amount you can, you are helping to make a difference in your child’s future. These are just a few of the programs funded by FoSA.
Teacher’s Aides - $75,000 Field Trips - $7,000 Teacher Professional Development - $15,600
How much should I give?
Below are the suggested dollar amounts that the nearby schools are requesting per child:
Ocean Charter - $2,500 Coeur d’Alene - $1,250 Beethoven - $1,500 Walgrove - $1,200
We are asking each family to consider a donation of $750 per child + $250 for each sibling. However, any amount is welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support and your involvement. Here’s to a wonderful year!!
