Why Do We Need to Raise Funds?

Public funding for charter school programs will not be made available to the organization until July of 2016, with the school year beginning in August 2016. Facilities must be finished, supplies and furnishing in place, students enrolled and faculty and staff hired and trained prior to any fund being released to the school. In order to achieve our goals, we need our community’s help to fund the planning year expenses. If you have any questions, our team is more than willing to answer them! Please reach out to us at [email protected] and one of our board members will reach out within a day.

There are several ways to help!

Donate Items – Cleaning out closets? Getting new furniture? Renovating your kitchen? We might be able to use that old refrigerator, couch, desk, computer, tablet, musical instrument or art supplies! If you think you have something we may be able to use at the school, please email us at [email protected] and we’ll let you know if it meets one of our needs and arrange to pick it up. We’ll even provide you with a receipt for your taxes!

Buy a Brick –You’re invited to help us pave the way to a new charter school with the purchase of a personalized, engraved brick. Your support of expanded public educational options in Winter Haven will be permanently set and prominently displayed in the courtyard of the new school facility located in downtown Winter Haven.

Become a Sponsor – We have sponsorship opportunities available from $5,000 – $25,000 that will not only help the school in a big way, but will also allow you a chance to showcase your business! Interested in a specific sponsorship you don’t see here? Contact us at [email protected] We’re happy to work with you. Click here to see our capital campaign.
