The Achieve Foundation appreciates the fact that 80% of its funds comes from the local community. Achieve rallies support for its programs, which help to ensure that all children benefit equally from outstanding education through its annual appeal. In addition to volunteer tutors, educator grants and fellowships and new technology, the foundation also funds pilots that are later adopted by the schools, such as Computer Assisted Design, robotics and Beyond the Bell after school enrichment. Local residents and businesses and organizations contribute generously, either to Achieve’s general fund or toward a specific program of their choice.
The Honor Roll of Sustaining Gifts
Some loyal donors make substantial three-year pledges by joining Achieve’s Honor Roll. This initiative sustains Achieve’s annual programs by guaranteeing a reserve of anticipated funds, which allow the Achieve Board of Trustees to invest in new endeavors. Honor Roll donors pledge to make a gift for three consecutive years at one of three levels:
HONORS – $1,000 to $2,499
HIGH HONORS – $2,500 to $4,999
PRINCIPAL’S LIST – $5,000 and above
Pledges may be made in one payment or in installments determined by the donor. To inquire about joining Achieve’s Honor Roll, please click here.
