From all of us at FoAEA, we hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
Holiday Gift Giving
Each year FoAEA provides information on holiday gift giving that helps support
our community and raises money for the school. Last year the AEA community helped
raised $3,000 while purchasing holiday gifts for your family and
friends. This year, with the growth in
the schools and the better visibility of this program, we'd like to see how much
better we can do.
Holiday Shopping Through Amazon
The amazon.com affiliate program has
become one of our most successful fundraisers over the last few years in part
doesn't cost anything beyond what you were going to purchase
anyway. This school
year participation has been fantastic.
How does the program work? Simple! The only thing special you need to know is
As you are planning your holiday gift giving, please remember to use our link
(foaea.org/amazon) and tell anybody you can
about it including grandparents, uncles and aunts, friends of the family, etc. Gift
giving can have even more meaning when it is also raising money for schools.
There's no limit to who can use it, how many times, or how much money we can
raise through this program!
Artsonia is great for Holiday Gifts!
Go to Artsonia and check out your
child's artwork. If you buy before December 15th
it will deliver by Christmas and the school gets 20% of your purchases
back as a donation.
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.
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
Information normally needed to have an employeer make a matching grant is available
