2012-2013 Giving Campaign for Piedmont Schools Kicks Off this Week

Posted by Len Gilbert on September 28, 2012

A Great Public Education Isn’t Free. It’s up to us.

The 2012-13 Giving Campaign for Piedmont schools kicked off this week, with dozens of volunteers gathering at two Piedmont homes to assemble and distribute campaign materials. Piedmont parents with children in elementary, middle and high school received the mailer this week for the district’s largest annual fundraiser, seeking for donations to help offset the devastating ongoing budget cuts faced by California public schools. 

Piedmont schools currently receive only 58 percent of their operating budget from the state and federal government, and rely on the generous support of our community to help offset the growing educational funding gap.

This year The Giving Campaign asks that each family consider contributing $1,000 per student to this year’s fundraiser. Donations of any amount will help protect the teachers, staff and essential academic programs that make Piedmont schools dynamic, competitive and strong. 

Check your mailbox for this year’s Giving Campaign information and details on how you can help. For more information or to donate today, visit  www.piedmontgivingcampaign.com. Our kids will thank you!
