Description

I am asking for your support of the Wiseburn Education Foundation (WEF) with a donation to our online auction at our fundraising event, Rock Around the Block. This annual community family fun day includes games, rides, food booths, and performances highlighting the Wiseburn- Da Vinci music program. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at R.H. Dana Middle School and we anticipate over 1,500 attendees.

WEF is a volunteer driven fundraising organization, focused on providing supplemental monies for district programs that give our students invaluable opportunities in visual and performing arts, nutrition education, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), and many other wonderful programs that help them grow.  Over the past several years, the Wiseburn Education Foundation has providing funding in the following areas:

  • Arts Education including drama, choral and instrumental music, and visual arts, including the Wiseburn-Da Vinci Music Program.
  • Healthy Lifestyles Programs including nutrition education and physical fitness.
  • STEM Activities including Engineering Hackathon Challenges.
  • Teacher Grants including funding for innovative classroom technology and equipment, curriculum enhancement, and multi-disciplinary projects.

I realize you have many opportunities throughout the year to make a difference for local non-profit organizations and we would be honored to receive your support.  Donations from community businesses are critical to our success.  Organizations like yours helped WEF raise over $100,000 last year; our goal for the 2018-2019 school year is to raise $250,000 in support of our cause. 

 If you have any additional questions or would like further information, please feel free to call me at (310) 809-2534 or email me at anne@wiseburnedfoundation.org.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.  Your contributions will make a significant impact and difference for students in the Wiseburn Unified School District!
