Fundraising Overview

As a public charter school, Springwater receives only 80% of the State School Fund and little to no funds from other available District, State or Federal funds provided to other public schools and students. As a result, we operate with less funds than traditional public schools, so Springwater relies on fundraising efforts to help cover its basic operational costs such as our mortgage, programming components, staff salaries, classroom supplies, etc.   Springwater is unable to remain open without the fundraising efforts of its families.

The purpose of the fundraising events is to raise the amount of fundraising revenue budgeted for each year. The event chairs strongly rely on the participation of Springwater families in the planning as well as participation in all events.  Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 which will help pay for operational expenses.

Fundraising Activities for 2019-2020

This year our fundraising goal is $100,000. We ask for 100% parent participation which means volunteering, attending and/or spreading the word by inviting your friends, family and neighbors!
 
We have a variety of fun activities set up for the year. Please contact each of the event leads if you’d like to volunteer or if you have questions about the event. Sponsorship opportunities are available for each event or you can sponsor ALL the events for special perks! Contact Mali Geister for more sponsorship information.
