Maple Street School is a special place. It begins as a community for our children, and becomes a community for us as parents… a community that comes together to strengthen Maple Street School year after year for generations of children. Our collective fundraising efforts are an integral part of this community building and an area where each of us can contribute to the mission and success of our school.
We fundraise at Maple Street School to support the Scholarship Fund – a program that gives financial assistance to local families who would not otherwise be able to join the Maple Street community.This year, the school has awarded approximately $50,000 in scholarships to keep the Maple Street School a diverse mix of students reflective of the neighborhood and our shared values. Our goal is to raise $55,000 this year to provide even more scholarships and your help is essential to meeting this goal!
As a cooperative school, Maple Street relies on each family to devote time and support to financing its annual scholarship fund, and to maintaining its legacy. This year, we have designed a fundraising plan that is less event-focused, is considerate of your hectic schedules and offers some flexibility in how you help us fulfill our goals. To that end, we have eliminated one of the fundraising events and are introducing instead an Annual Appeal: a time when we ask all active families to raise or personally donate a minimum of $200. We hope that you, like other parents before you, will see the opportunity to fundraise and contribute as a way to give back while developing friendships with other parents and enjoying fun outings together as Maple Street families.
