Happy New Year and Thank You for 2015

We hope you and your families had a wonderful holiday break and wish you the best in 2016.

Thank you for all of your support during the first part of this school year. So far, our Annual Donation Drive has raised over $31,500 of our our goal of $57,500. This is a fantastic first half of the school year and we cannot thank you enough for your support.

We will be sending out end of the year e-mail statements for all of the donations made through our Giving Fuel portal (foaea.org/donate) and then later we will send out tax letters for individual donations greater than $250. These e-mails and letters can help provide the information you need when your employer will match employee donations; just ask your company's HR department. Information normally needed to have an employer make a matching grant is available here.

Amazon Update

Last year, your purchases through the amazon.com affiliate program raised almost $8,000 without costing any of your a cent. Let's keep growing this program so 2016 can be even better.
