Every year at Community Magnet Charter School we set a fundraising goal, the goal for 2016 - 2017 school year is $375,000.

Community Family and Friends (CFF) is our school’s fundraising and volunteer group, established by parent volunteers as a non-profit fundraising arm to provide curricular enhancement and classroom support programs for all students at Community Magnet Charter School.

 

How Do We Raise $375,000?

  • Annual Pledge Drive provides over 60% of the CFF budget each year.  Please see the attached brochures to learn more about the Pledge Drive.  We request that each family contribute $900 per child towards the valuable resources above (which all children benefit from, regardless of ability to donate).  100% participation is our ultimate goal.  Donations in any amount are welcome and can be submitted in cash, by check or visit the Donations page here to donate now.

Why Pledge?

  • CFF is committed to providing a rich curriculum to each and every child at Community Magnet Charter School that includes among other things, visual art instruction, PE, improvisational drama instruction, and modern technology.  Providing these enriching experiences comes at a cost that is significantly more than what the District gives to public elementary schools.  To ensure the continuation of our enrichment programs and other school support, our goal this year is to raise $375,000.  These funds represent the difference between a good education and the EXCELLENT education our children receive at Community Magnet Charter School. 

    We suggest a donation of $900 per child.  More important than the amount you give, however, is the fact that you give.  Please give a gift that is meaningful to your family's circumstances.  Our goal is 100% participation this year.  Help us reach this goal by giving generously if you are able.  We give together so we can grow our school together!
