With summer halfway over, we thought we’d take a minute to update all of our followers on our fundraising progress.
To date, we’ve raised over $700 towards building the library. This means we are over 70% funded!
The library is going to be a great resource for Saving Grace students. At present, the students lack any reading materials, so they don’t get practice outside of class time. With the installation of the library, students will be able to bring home books to practice their reading and comprehension skills outside of the classroom. Access to books also means access to new ideas and a great way to engage their imaginations.
We recently launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds in order to install a water tank. As of today, we’ve raised $120, which is 24% of our goal reached.
The water tank is extremely important. In order for Saving Grace to register as a boarding school, certain qualifications must be met, including access to safe, clean water. By installing a water tank, we are ensuring this access, as well as the success of the school. Clean water not only means the ability to board students–it is a necessary component for personal hygiene, cooking, and drinking.
While this is a great start, we are still far from raising the $30,000 we originally intended to raise this summer. We are presently working on some great fundraising events for the fall. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
