Dear Birney Families, Friends and Supporters,

I am excited to report the giveBIG campaign is a huge success! We have raised enough money for the FOABE Board to commit the foundation to funding the library for the rest of the year. It’s amazing what we can do when we work together for a common goal!

Let’s keep up the momentum, smash through that $10,000 goal and help fund programs for 2012-13. High Tech High’s Foundation has 178 donors, we have 61. Let’s break 100!

Thanks to everyone who has given. If you haven’t pledged yet, can I count on you to make a donation of $25 or more today? We have until 7:00 p.m. today to take advantage of this campaign. Remember that $120 funds your child’s Spanish, art and music instruction as well as an open library, for one year. GIVE BIG!

Update: at 7:00pm It’s hard to believe that less than 12 hours into the giveBIG campaign, we have collected more than $8600 in donations from 51 donors, with at least another $600 pledged! Our supporters are the best!! You can join the crowd by making your tax-deductible donation in the form below. And if your wallet is a little thin right now, help by sharing this link with your friends and family. – There are facebook, twitter and email links at the bottom of the donation form.

Don’t forget that the campaign goes until 7 p.m. THURSDAY and that we can use anything above our $10,000 goal to reinstate arts instruction ($22,500 cost for the year)



Update: at 12:30pm – $6,930 raised so far!!
