Thank You for Remembering FoAEA

Thanks to everybody who remembered FoAEA in their end of the year giving and thank you for remembering to use FoAEA's Amazon link. December was our best month EVER with Amazon with $2,267 raised and a grand total of $11,451 for the whole year. Putting that into perspective:

  • we raised 44% more with Amazon than the previous year
  • using our link in December paid for most of the Elementary field trips for the year
  • the whole year covers both the Elementary field trips and around one third of the MS field trips

...and all without costing anybody a dime. Keep using our link!

End of the Year Donations

Thanks to everybody who donated through our donation portal in December. It was a great month raising almost $9,000 and thanks to your efforts those donations will have over $5,000 in matching grants. Thank you. While we are making good progress towards our 2016-17 goal of $60,000, we still need approximately another $10,000 in pledged donations to help meet our goals for the year. Please take a few moments to donate to FoAEA.

These are the programs that Friends of Albert Eintein Academies supports each year.

Giving Fuel donation e-mails

Over the weekend, we sent out e-mails to everybody who donated through Giving Fuel in 2016. This e-mail breaks down your donations and can help you prepare for your taxes. We will also be sending out donation letters for any individual donation of $250 or greater. Please let us know if you haven't received the e-mail.
