As a public charter school, Springwater receives only 80% of the State funds available to other public schools. As a result, Springwater relies on fundraising efforts to help cover its basic operational costs such as rent, staff salaries, classroom supplies, etc. In these tight economic times, when State funds are being reduced each year at an unprecedented rate, Springwater is unable to remain open without the fundraising efforts of its families.
The purpose of the fundraising committee is to raise the amount of fundraising revenue budgeted for each year. The committee strongly relies on the participation of Springwater families in the planning as well as participation in all events. Our goal this year is to raise $80,000 which will help pay for basic operational expenses.
