The San Marino Schools Foundation has officially kicked off its 2013-14 Annual Campaign.
Foundation President John Cate reminds all supporters that “Donations to the San Marino Schools Foundation will fund 10% of the San Marino Unified School District’s 2013-14 budget.”
Funds raised through this campaign benefit all San Marino students by funding certificated teaching positions throughout the district.
“Currently, the Foundation funds the equivalent of 32 teaching positions – 10 at San Marino High School, 8 at Huntington Middle School and 14 at the Elementary School level,” according to Julie Boucher, SMUSD assistant superintendent of business services. “Each of these positions contributes greatly to the quality of education that is reflected in the district’s Number One ranking statewide in Academic Performance Index scores for the eleventh year in a row.”
The Foundation is targeting to raise $3 million by the end of the school year. Peter Koh, the Foundation Trustee leading this year’s Annual Campaign, indicates “Thanks to early support from parents and the community, we’ve already raised $750,000 toward our Campaign goal. We can’t reach our goal without participation from a significant portion of district families as well as donations from members of the community and businesses.”
All donations are tax deductible. For further information, please call the Foundation office at (626) 299-7014 or visit the Schools Foundation website at www.smsf.org
