One-time funding from the Cares Act has saved our schools from budget cuts this year. However, due to the continuing COVID-19-related economic downturn, the state still faces significant budget shortfalls, and it remains a distinct likelihood that the same budget cuts that threatened our schools in the spring will revisit us in the near future. With your help we will continue to do all we can to build a safety net for our schools as we navigate these uncertain times.
Yes, I will support the Buckeye Education Foundation!
The Buckeye Education Foundation is YOUR nonprofit organization, created by Buckeye parents for all of our schools and children!
Welcome back to school Buckeye! For those new to the Buckeye School District, welcome! The Buckeye Education Foundation is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit organization that has been fundraising to support Buckeye schools since 2009. Working at the district level, we offer support that is separate from the valuable support provided by our school PTAs and PTOs, because it is support that schools can only receive at the district-level, such as supplemental funding for teacher and staff salaries. We expect the coming years to present big financial challenges for our district, and we are doing all we can to help Buckeye schools prepare. We have set a 2020-21 fundraising goal of $100,000 which would go a long way in providing a safety net for valuable programs that will be put in jeopardy if our district’s funding is impacted by the current pandemic-induced recession. Since June, we have raised nearly $50,000, getting us almost half way to our goal already! With your help, we hope to rally our community to help raise our goal flag to its height! We are suggesting a $250 donation per student to make the most meaningful impact in Buckeye schools, though smaller donations will add up and are gratefully welcome!
Please fill out our donation and survey form and return it to your teacher, school office, district office, by mail, or submit it online below by Monday, August 31st. The class with the highest percentage of returned forms at each school by August 31st will receive a fun prize! (Prize to be determined in collaboration with the teacher.)
We are Buckeye!
ANY amount you can donate makes a difference, whether it be $10 or $10,000!
