A gift now is more meaningful than ever
There are many examples of the creativity, ingenuity, and inspiration of Stanbridge's distance-learning on our website's student blog, Alerts Page, and social media feeds. What you won't see, however, is the profound ripple effect that the COVID closure has had on many within our community. A number of Stanbridge families have been severely impacted by the economic fallout from the pandemic, experienced job loss, or have had their health and living situations significantly compromised. The need for financial aid next year is greater than ever, and some of our current parents have a real fear that they will no longer be able to access the Stanbridge program for their children when the new school year begins. With so many school districts struggling throughout the current climate to meet the needs of their special needs students, Stanbridge has been a consistent source of strength and a beacon of hope for families with LD kids.
To ensure all students and families who need the structure, support, and community that Stanbridge provides can access our program, we are launching a special Spring Appeal of our Annual Fund Campaign. With a goal of raising $60,000 before this school year ends, trustees and outside donors have already raised $25,000, and have pledged to match—dollar-for-dollar—all donations received now through the end of the school year.
If you have not yet made a contribution to this year's Annual Fund Campaign, a donation now is more meaningful than ever. Your gift not only helps us get closer to our fundraising goal, it will effectively be doubled through the matching funds incentive. More importantly, your contribution will give hope to the Stanbridge families who are struggling most in getting through these incredibly difficult times.
As we enter the final stretch of the school year, no family should feel hopeless. The Stanbridge community has shown, time and again, that we are at our best when we rally together and rise to the challenge. Though physically apart, we are still a community together, and together we remain #StanbridgeStrong.
