Have a Wonderful Summer Vacation

On behalf of everybody at Friends of AEA, we wish the entire AEA community a wonderful, restful, and safe summer vacation. We hope to see you at the Back to School BBQ the Friday before school starts (August 26th). We will let everybody know more details on both events as we get closer to the beginning of the school year.

Thank you for your support

We won't know the final numbers until after our fiscal year ends in July, but it looks like this year we came very close to raising $150,000. We did a bit better in the Donation Drive (about $62k raised vs $57.5 planned). We did a bit worse in the Auction Gala (about $58k raised s $68k planned). Amazon will raise over $9,000 this year ($3k better than last year). The Rock'n Run-a-thon pulled in a whopping $13k.

If you've been meaning to donate to FoAEA during the school year and haven't, it isn't too late. Sign up at foaea.org/donate. If you subscribe with a monthly subscription, you'll be ready to go for the 2017-18 school year!

Thank you to everybody for your support financial support and all of your volunteering during the 2015-16 school year. Your help makes Albert Einstein Academies an even more wonderful school.

Other fundraising options? We'd like your opinions

We are continually looking at how we fundraise at AEA and we are interested in your opinions. We are looking to utilize more programs like the Amazon affiliate program where the cost to AEA families are zero, but the donations to the school can be significant. Please let us know your ideas.
