Have you made your Annual Giving donation?
Sun, Nov 25 1:54pm


Hi, WGE parents! We hope you had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying this time with your family.

If you have been meaning to make your Annual Giving donation but just haven’t gotten to it, we hope you will consider doing so as part of Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving held every year, right after Thanksgiving. We recommend a donation of $300 per child, but any amount is greatly appreciated. These funds pay for technology upgrades; hands-on Schmahl Science workshops and music instruction and for every class; the annual Tree Lighting — and so much more.


Thank you to those who have already given. We just passed the $50,000 mark — earning the entire school a popcorn party! If we can hit our $65,000 goal, our kids will get to tape Ms. Knapp to a wall! What could be more fun?


And don’t forget to check whether your company will match your donation! Many in Silicon Valley do, and Apple is paying a 2-to-1 match till Dec. 31. We received more than $13,000 in corporate matching in October alone!
