Academic Giving Campaign (AGC)
The Academic Giving Campaign (AGC) is the major fundraising effort for our school’s academic enhancements. Through the AGC, every student is able to experience Art, Music, Saxon Math, the A.C.E. Tutoring program and other educational enhancements, including environmental education, technological learning aides, and special training for teachers. To meet the expenses incurred for these programs, our goal is to raise $53,975 by November 15th, 2013. Since 2002, North Beach families have generously given to this program. Without the support of our wonderful community these programs wouldn't exist.
This year, to encourage participation in the AGC our Golden Envelope Campaign returns! Here’s how the two parts of the Golden Envelope Campaign work:
Golden Envelope Classroom Competition:
The Golden Envelope and form will be sent home via Kidmail in October. Fill out the form and return it in the Golden Envelope via Kidmail. The first classroom to return 100% of their forms will receive an AGC-sponsored party! Your envelope counts toward the class party simply for being returned to school. Giving is encouraged, but not required.
If you have misplaced your form, copies can be found in the AGC box in the school office or can be printed here. Note Golden Envelope when sending it in.
Golden Envelope Raffle:
To help meet the AGC’s goal by November 15, we are offering raffle prizes to encourage giving. Anyone who gives at the eligible levels below per child at North Beach is entered to win. If you already donated via the PTA Family Form, you will be entered into the appropriate raffle. If you donate more, it will be added to your previous donation.
Tier I Prize $175-249 per child
Tier II Prize $250 or more per child
Here is a look at the programs the AGC will fund this year:
North Beach Elementary is a great success on all levels – test scores, special programs, community support and parent involvement. Our AGC is a direct giving program, which means there is virtually no overhead. Funds raised pay directly for the AGC programs and the Resident Specialists.
Without your support, we cannot have these important programs at our school. Because all children benefit from these programs, we hope to have 100% participation - meaning every family at North Beach gives what they can, as generously as they can. And remember, every gift is tax-deductible.
Donating is easy – On our donor form, you can give now in one easy payment, or in installments, or make a pledge to donate later in the year.
