ANNUAL HOLIDAY GIVING CAMPAIGN

giving thanks to our APA teachers and staff

From the desk of Michelle Goudge, Executive Director…

 

Each year our Foundation holds a Holiday Giving Campaign at the end of the calendar year to raise funds for a gift for our APA teachers and staff members. In the past we’ve given items like chocolates, roses, and jackets. This year we want those teachers and staff members to receive a gift of their choosing, so our gift to each of them will be a gift card to purchase something that they want or need. We invite you to join us as we raise funds for this gift. We’re excited to offer this as an alternative to taking time out of your busy schedules to go out and purchase candles, mugs, and the like.

With your contribution you will receive cards for you and your children to write your own messages to the APA teachers and staff members of your choosing. Your student(s) can then deliver those personalized cards to their teachers. Those cards will not only touch the hearts of of those teachers and staff members, but will also be a reminder of your generosity.

Our goal of $50,000 is a hefty one, but one that I know we can reach. When I think about purchasing a small gift for each of my Draper 3 student’s teachers, contributing that money, instead, to the Holiday Giving Fund is a much easier, less time-consuming, and more meaningful option.

Your contribution makes a difference. And if your employer has a matching program, you can double your donation to this year’s Holiday Giving Campaign. 

Wishing you and your family the happiest of holidays. Thank you for your generosity and support of our amazing teachers and staff.

2020 HOLIDAY Giving Campaign

Wow! Our parents (and grandparents) are AMAZING! Donors contributed $15,600 to our 2020 Holiday Giving Campaign! Our original goal for the campaign was $16,000 to purchase jackets for all APA staff members. That being the case, we came so close to reaching our goal! But then the decision was made to purchase a higher quality jacket, pushing the goal to $24,000. The holidays are over, but if you weren’t able to contribute in December, it’s not too late! Please go to the bottom of this page to make your contribution.

Falling in step with everything else in 2020, there was a bump in the road with getting the jackets to our staff members before the break. But they have arrived and the feedback has been very positive. Our teachers and staff LOVE their jackets! I have heard nothing but thanks and appreciation. More photos coming soon…
