When Drew and I were asked to Chair the All Saints Fund for this year, we said yes without question! Our hearts are full of love and pride for All Saints. We want to tell you all the reasons we LOVE our school, and why we give to The All Saints Fund every year.
Here are a few of our LOVES:
- Safe, secure campus
- Hands-on learning that goes far beyond classroom walls
- Teachers become like family
- Largest school learning farm in Texas – oh the chickens!
- Exposure to new and healthy foods at school
- Opportunities for our kids to thrive, no matter what they are passionate about
- Our children will be prepared and equipped for the future
We give to the All Saints Fund because we care deeply about education for all students, not just our own. The theme of this year’s All Saints Fund is Every Trojan. Your donation of $50, $250, $100 or even $10 will help support EVERY student.
The All Saints Fund is a crucial part of our school’s livelihood. Money raised goes directly into our operating budget, the largest part of which is for faculty compensation. As a community we must remain committed to our incredible teachers who dedicate their lives to our children. The All Saints Fund also goes toward professional development for teachers, maintaining our beautiful campus, and enhancing technology in the classroom.
The goal for this year’s Annual Fund is $275,000 by December 31. We hope to achieve 100% parent participation. Your participation is counted even if you give $5 or $10--the amount doesn't matter. Participation is important because educational foundations look at the participation rate when awarding grant money to schools. Right now, All Saints is a finalist for the E.E. Ford Foundation Grant. If selected, All Saints would receive $100,000 grant to create a network of schools promoting agile thinking and student agency.
100% of our teachers have donated to the All Saints Fund. Will you join them? Will you join us?
Together, we can reach our goal! Thank you for choosing All Saints.
Catherine and Drew Bankston
