Can Do! Funding

THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS!

Recent weeks have brought disruption to our community, but the Can Do! Education Foundation's mission remains strong: to support and enhance the education of our students.  Our board and staff are forging ahead to make the most of every donation.  Our Instructional Specialists are working hard to create digital content to support our parents, students and district staff.  Our thoughts are with all families, donors, district staff and the community.

 

ABOUT CAN DO!

The Can Do! Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides vital funds to the Miller Creek School District in order to bridge the financial gap between current state funding and the quality, well-rounded education our students deserve.   For the 2019-20 school year, through parent and community donations, Can Do! directly funded Art, PE, Music, Environmental Science, Counseling,Technology programs and much more. 

Can Do! raises money for the current school year, not the next school year, so that even families with 8th graders benefit.  Can Do! commits funds to the school district to spend in the current school year, based upon the district's needs.  We commit to raising a set amount of dollars and as donations are received, turn over those funds in multiple payments throughout the school year.

 

HOW DOES CAN DO! WORK?

Each year Can Do! board members, volunteers and staff reach out to families and local businesses seeking financial contributions to help "bridge-the gap" cost, which is about $600 per student.  While donations are welcomed any time during the year, it really helps to meet our Annual Family Giving goal as early in the school year as possible.  It is critical to reach this goal: if we fall short, programs that rely on these funds may be at risk.

Please give as generously as you can.  Donations of any amount will help ensure that our children continue to receive an unparalleled education that keeps them inspired and healthy.

 

WHAT ARE THE PARTICIPATION NUMBERS FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR?

As of March 1st, 2020, 54% of families in the Miller Creek School District have donated. Last year at this time we were at 58% participation.  To meet our commitment to the district, we need as much of the remaining 46% of potential donors to contribute at a level that is comfortable to each family. 

Help our students by donating today!
