Hello MAM Families,
We’re all learning the new ropes of a virtual world, and the MAM Fund has big changes to announce. Springfest, our largest fundraiser, was cancelled last year, and we have decided to cancel the event this spring as well. The good news - we’re rolling all our fundraising efforts into the Fall Giving Campaign, one amazing week this November to support our school and our children.
Without Springfest, Fall Giving Week will be our main fundraiser for the 2020-2021 school year. From Monday, November 9th through Friday, November 13th, we’ll be celebrating our community and asking for your generous donations to support teacher programming, classroom supplies, rain garden maintenance, and programs like Food Right that continue despite social distancing.
We’ve organized fun events each day with new ways to connect with one another. There will be an online auction of amazing items, a virtual trivia party, and an option to simply give.
Things you can look forward to at the auction? Gift cards to local restaurants, amazing homemade meals prepared by parents in our community, a brand new bike, decorative items for the home, fitness memberships that can be virtual or in person, original artwork, and one of a kind cultural experiences. To celebrate the close of the week, we’re throwing a brand new Trivia Night on Friday, November 13th (cross your fingers we didn’t jinx it!). Hosted by MAM Family-owned HeadSpace Trivia, the evening includes 75 minutes of trivia, cameos by familiar faces, and prizes for the winners. Visit FallGives.givesmart.com to purchase your trivia tickets now!
If you have a talent or skill you think would translate to a cool auction item, please let us know! Some of our most popular items in past years have been specialty meals prepared by school families. If you love to cook, bake, build, sew, paint, or have a business that would like to donate, we’d love to talk about how you can contribute to our school and community.
This is the time to give if you can. Follow us on Facebook at MAM FUND to see what is coming!
With warm regards,
Fall Giving Week Co-Chairs and MAM Fund Members
