Gala Kick Off Meeting

January 20th after drop off at the lunch arbor in the elementary school.

Our gala is the biggest fundraiser of the year for your parent organization- FRIENDS of AEA. Our goal this year is $100,000 to pay for science, physical education, language support and many other programs you and your children have come to expect. WE NEED YOUR HELP! There are many openings on the team. Our goal is to get enough people to make the work easy on all. We are not a meeting-heavy group so many of the jobs can be done at home via email. Please come to the meeting and sign up for one of the teams or to be a team leader. Training available and all hands are welcome. If you can’t attend but would like to help, please email Rebecca.

Thank you for all you do and for all you can do for the kids of Einstein! See you there, Rebecca Bennett Gala Chair 2016

Support essential enrichment programs at AEA

Please help support essential programs at AEA through a donation to Friends of Albert Einstein Academies. Our goal is to have 200 families participate in this donation drive. Donating to FoAEA supports the enrichment programs that our kids benefit from including art, music, PE and science programs and provides funds for field trips, assemblies, and classroom supplies.

If you haven't signed up yet, please take 5 minutes to contribute to AEA's enrichment programs. Go to our donation website from your mobile device or computer and select a monthly donation amount or a one time donation. Choose $30/month ($1/day) or any amount affordable to you. Even $5 or $10 per month makes a huge difference for the kids.

Matching Grants

Last year, the following companies made matching grants to FoAEA: Union Bank, Qualcomm, Pfizer, Intuit, Genentech, Covidien, Nokia, and ARS National Svcs.

We thank all of these companies for their generous support. If you work for any of these companies and have not yet taken advantage of their matching grant program, it just takes a few minutes and is free money to the school. One way of finding out if your employeer supports matching grants is to look at this list of companies. Information normally needed to have an employeer make a matching grant is available here.
