ANNUAL APPEAL - INVEST IN KIDS!

Opening Doors to Student Success

“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” Kofi Annan

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on donors like you to provide much needed funding for education projects that enrich the lives of children and their teachers.

Here are just a few examples of the ways in which your generous giving helps our local education community:

ANNUALLY YOU HELP US:

  • Provide Basic Needs
Sneaker Exchange - Happy Feet

Your generous giving has provided 17,000 children with basic needs such as sneakers, eye-glasses, backpacks and school supplies.

  • Give Special Needs Children, Like Loreal, Abilities To Live Independently

Room of Engaging Ability Learning

Your support gives 56 special-needs students ages 5 - 22, like Loreal, a customized, caring place for learning to teach them everyday skills that most of us take for granted. The REAL (Room of Engaging Ability Learning) Lab based at Wabasso School ensures that these kids can one day live independently and become gainfully employed.

  • Make Dreams Become Reality

Indian River Regional Science & Engineering Fair 

This year, you've helped promote more than 500 budding scientists, mathematicians and engineers through the Indian River Regional Science & Engineering Fair. Students like Susie show the world their dreams and how they’d like to make a difference in research and future projects that can change lives. More important, many receive scholarships to attend college. For the last 26 years your private donations have helped us award $1.8 million in scholarships.

  • Improve Graduation Rates

Algebra Counts 2

Your support enriches the skills of teachers to effectively deliver instruction and increase math scores for almost 900 students through the Algebra Counts 2 program. A child cannot graduate high school without passing Algebra.

  • Give Young Children Confidence
STEP Into Kindergarten
 

You've helped young children, like Bobby, ages 4-5 take the first step toward entering school. STEP into K prepares youth for success, showing them what it’s like to be in a structured classroom environment. They enter Kindergarten with confidence and skills that enhance learning. 

These are just a few of the many projects that we are involved in each year. We thank you for enriching the lives of students and teachers.

Do you want to continue to see us grow power, knowledge and skills for our local students and teachers? Without the help of donors like you, many needs in our education community will be unmet.

Please make a gift for education to help us continue to provide skills for children and their teachers ensuring they will achieve successful lives through high quality education.
