The Annual Fund campaign is The GLOBE Academy’s biggest fundraiser and it runs from July to June each school year. As a public charter school, GLOBE receives some of its funding from the state and DeKalb County School District; however, charter schools do not receive the same level of funding as traditional public schools.
In fact, GLOBE and other DeKalb charter schools are now facing significant budget cuts. The Annual Fund helps close this funding gap, which reduces the time we spend fundraising and strengthens our capacity to provide a quality education for our students.
The 2020-2021 Annual Fund goal is to raise $156,000 with 100% participation from GLOBE families. The suggested tax-deductible donation is $400/per student (about $2 per school day), but any donation that is meaningful to you will make difference and is much appreciated.
A gift to the Annual Fund is the primary way you can support our school by giving GLOBE the flexibility to use unrestricted funds to address our most pressing needs. Growing our Annual Fund each year allows us to thrive and achieve greater financial stability. The Annual Fund directly supports academic, extracurricular, and dual language immersion programming for students, equipment and software upgrades, facility improvements, strategic planning, as well as faculty salaries and professional development.
How much should I give? This year’s suggested tax-deductible donation amount is $400/per child ( about $2 per school day). You may also choose to spread this out as $40 monthly donation for each child for 10 months. That said, we ask that you give a donation that is meaningful to you. The Annual Fund participation rate is important. It is used by foundations and corporations as a barometer to measure the value our community places on educating our own children. In short, the school must be important to us for it to be important to others. Don't forget, your employer may offer a match program. Click here for more info.
Please note that as of the 2020-2021 school year, donations made to GLOBE Trot, GLOBE Rocks and/or Square One Art go toward the total unrestricted fundraising goal of $300,000, but they are not included in the $156,000 Annual Fund goal. Donors who give monthly gifts are recognized at the appropriate level based on their total giving for the school year (July to June).
New this school year, The GLOBE Academy is acknowledging donors who invest in the school for two or more consecutive years. Donors are continually recognized when they meet the giving requirements below.
