In case you haven’t heard, today is #GivingTuesday, a global movement begun ten years ago to celebrate and encourage generosity, acts of kindness and volunteerism.
This day of celebrating community is the perfect time to pledge your support of Achieve and help us kick off our year-end fundraising efforts. Your tax-deductible donation will help us ensure that all South Orange-Maplewood School District students have access to important learning opportunities that prepare them for the future, and will help further our mission to support our students, families and educators by addressing inequities, championing excellence, inspiring innovation, fostering community and delivering solutions.
Your gift will help fund a number of initiatives including our Volunteer Tutor Program, Educator Grants, Riecke Teaching Fellowships, Music Programs, Maker Madness and other STEM education. Students in all our schools benefit from Achieve-sponsored enriching educational opportunities every day including robotics, artist in residency programs, culturally responsive reading materials, science equipment, and programs that focus on students’ social-emotional wellbeing.
