Bolton Academy continues to gain support through DonorsChoose! Over the last two weeks, Ms. Walls, Ms. Powell and Ms. Tompkins received full funding for their various grants posted on DonorsChoose.com.
For those of you not familiar with DonorsChoose, it's a unique non-profit organization that makes it easy to donate to classrooms in need. Teachers post their classroom requests online, which can include everything from iPads to gym equipment, then anyone wishing to participate can view the requests and donate. Often times, foundations and corporations will offer funding for open grants, that's why it is so important that our teachers continue to post their projects. For example, a teacher might have an open grant for classroom iPads and then a foundation decides to fund all open technology grants, therefore the teachers request gets funded and the school gets the iPads!
We need to continue to encourage and support our administration and teachers to write and post grants and to help them by monitoring DonorsChoose.org for special funding opportunities. Just visit the website and search for Bolton Academy and look for us under the school section. All donations are tax deductible and help our students, our teachers and our school.
