Buckman Foundation Year-End-Ask @ Buckman Elementary
Dec 7 โ€“ Dec 31 all-day

Happy Wednesday Bears! ๐Ÿป
Tomorrow morning at the apparel sale we will kick off our annual Foundation Year-End Ask. Please join us under the tent for some warm coffee! I hear the elusive Buckman Bear will be there!โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿงข๐Ÿป

For those new to our amazing community: Year-End-Ask is a yearly campaign which raises funds for supplementary staffing positions. The Foundation’s first priority is raising enough money to fully fund the art program at Buckman. As you all know, Buckman is the ONLY arts-focused public elementary school in Portland. The foundation provides art staffing support for areas in need each year.๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽต๐Ÿฉฐ๐ŸŽญ

Good news๐ŸŽ‰: A group of Buckman families have pledged to donate an additional $10,000 to this campaign if 75 families give AT ANY LEVEL before December 31!๐ŸŽ‰

This means a gift of $5 or $10 can make a tremendous difference toward our 75-donor goal. I hope you will give as you are able. For some, that may be a $5 donation, for others it may be $10 per month, and for some it may be $500 or more.

Thank you for all that you do for Buckman, and for supporting our incredible, creative community and its amazing students. GO BEARS!๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™
