What would your kids say if you asked them what they love about da Vinci? At first, they might say their friends. But if you asked them to really think about it, I think most would say they love their teachers and doing some form of art every day.
And they’re right. Our teachers and our unique arts curriculum are what make da Vinci special. In an era where the arts are considered “extras," the arts are da Vinci.
Thanks to this integrated approach to teaching and learning, da Vinci students are thriving academically, socially, and artistically. This is one of the reasons we volunteer for the da Vinci Foundation.
The da Vinci Foundation raises money that is used to hire staff. It keeps our arts program safe from cuts in bad budget years, and helps us expand in good years.
Through the month of December, the Foundation is running a direct ASK campaign. If 50 families or friends make a donation before December 31st, a group of parents will give more than $7,700 to the Foundation!
I urge you to join our campaign and give now. Even better, become a monthly donor. Monthly donors are especially valuable to the Foundation because they provide a consistent and reliable source of income. And, monthly giving allows you to spread a larger gift out over the course of a year. It’s easy to do, just sign up online through All Hands Raised.
Consider two amazing incentives:
- For the first $2,000 dollars raised, Por Que No!will match, your contribution dollar for dollar, yes, wow…so donate now!
- If you sign up as amonthly donor through the month of December, we will put your name into a raffle for some excellent gift certificates from local businesses. How does $30 to Staccato Gelato sound? Or how about $50 to East Burn? All current and new monthly donors have a shot at winning one of these prizes!
