Dear Discovery Academy Families and Friends:
Thursday, May 4th beginning at 6pm is GIVE BIG!!
Give Big is a 24-hour fundraising event. Traditionally, this is Discovery Academy’s largest fundraiser and our goal this year is to raise $120,000 for tuition assistance and to increase teacher salaries. The most important part about this fundraiser is that it is only open for 24 hours. Participation by Discovery Academy Staff and Families is a key component in the success of the event.
During the 22-23 School Year, the school gave out $157,000 in tuition assistance to families of Discovery Academy. With the projected enrollment increase for the upcoming school year, we expect this number to exceed $185,000.00.
Enrollment for the 23-24 school year is already at 95% capacity and we are receiving additional requests enrollment information almost daily. Of those students (95%) that are returning, a minimum of 33% of those families will be in need of financial assistance. We have another 16% – 27% of new, incoming families who may or may not be eligible for assistance as well.
This fundraiser is critical in supporting the needs of local families who want their children to attend Discovery Academy. Therefore, I ask you to donate, even just $5 to support local students, and/or to participate in the following ways:
Share a social media post/Instagram story about Give Big (while it is happening) and tag Discovery Academy.
Share the donation link with at least 5 other people who might be interested in supporting our cause via email (I can send you a template that includes how to donate).
Please join us! With your donation, we’re one step closer to raising $120,000 to support Big Sky Community Students.
