During the course of our Giving Tuesday campaign, over 60 donors contributed to help us reach our goal, which was then matched by the Foundation Board. Collectively, we raised $20,000, our largest Giving Tuesday contribution ever! This is a true milestone for the Underwood Foundation.
The funding received from our campaign strengthens our community as we:
- Provide additional social-emotional support for students and resources for families
- Increase custodial support to ensure a clean, safe environment for students and staff
- Build new systems for safe, joyful, and academically rigorous hybrid and remote learning instruction
- Support students and teachers to feel valued, heard, and loved
More so this year than ever before, we are grateful for your support.
2020 has been quite a whirlwind! Although the past seven months have presented many challenges and adjustments for everyone, there have also been some silver linings. For most of us, the extra time with family has been an opportunity we wouldn’t have received under normal circumstances. The time to connect and be together is priceless!
The current situation has also brought our Underwood School Family closer as well! The 2020-2021 school year is unlike any we’ve ever had and the needs for our school remain (and some might say have even increased!) Regardless of whether students are enrolled in person learning or Virtual Academy, we want to ensure our programming remains strong and our students/staff are supported.
Please consider giving monthly to the Foundation by clicking on the Donate link on the left side of our website. Any amount is appreciated! Your support will help us reach our $80,000 goal for this year.
Our “Uniquely Underwood” Gala is TOMORROW, Friday, April 24th! Our Silent Auction will feature a variety of incredible experiences and amazing products! Be sure to join us at underwood.givesmart.com from 4-9pm.
We are grateful for our generous gala sponsors every year, but considering this year’s contributors agreed to support the Foundation regardless of our event format is truly appreciated. Please join us in thanking our wonderful sponsors for their unwavering support!
