Elementary Foundation (created in 2005) is a non-profit organization
that raises money for the purpose of improving our school by
providing funding for technology, curriculum, and facility
improvements at East Side. Donations to the Foundation are
How We Raise Money
raises money by a Capital Campaign where
East Side families are asked to donate a minimum of $75 for each
child they have that attends East Side.
Last year, 63% of East Side families participated, raising over $77,558.54
to benefit the school. The Foundation also solicits corporate matching
donations and direct contributions from corporations in exchange for
sponsorships. The Foundation has sponsored other fundraisers in
previous years (Candlelight Gala, International Extravaganza, Movie
Nights, Bingo Night); however, we intend for the Capital Campaign to
be our sole major fundraiser for 2012-2013.
