I have written recently about the outstanding efforts of Impact on Education, the foundation for Boulder Valley Schools, in mobilizing support for our students and schools:
• Working with BVSD Food Services and volunteers to assemble lunches for local families in need.
• Collecting thousands of school supplies and backpacks ready to be used to support ongoing learning among students without access to technology.
• Looking for creative ways to fund after school/weekend enrichment to help our kids catch up and make sure that the gap in learning doesn’t become a permanent deficit.
Thanks to the generosity of four incredible supporters, a dollar-for-dollar matching fund now stands at $100,000. Impact on Education needs to raise $30,000 in the next few days to take full advantage of these matching dollars.
We can do this! If you have not given yet, please know that every gift in every amount is meaningful, and goes directly to help our students.
Allison Billings, executive director of Impact on Education, says, “It’s been so encouraging to see the ways that BVSD staff have contributed their time and talents to make sure ours kids are going to be okay. I’ve never been prouder.”
