On #GivingTuesday (12/1) we celebrate the extraordinary impact our school has had on our students and the broader Salem community. We are proud of the reputation our school has worked so hard to attain which wouldn’t have happened without the support of our most supportive donors. You’ve been there for us and helped make possible that since 2009, 98% of our graduating students have been accepted to college. Our sports teams have won numerous state championships, and our theater department has competed in the highest echelon of high school competition. We are grateful to everyone who has provided SACS the essential support of volunteering and fundraising efforts to help our school. Our sense of community is deepening because of you.
On this #GivingTuesday, I want to share an exciting update. This year, thanks to a generous donor, every dollar you donate will be matched up to $5,000! This means that we double every donation that you make!
Not sure what to do? Here are some ways you can support Salem Academy!
Donate to our Facebook Fundraiser or create a fundraiser on behalf of Salem Academy. Invite your friends and help us expand our reach! Just $500 (which becomes $1,000) can help us purchase digital textbook licenses for teachers, purchase new weight room equipment for athletics, or support upgrades to our theatre storage. Imagine what $1,000 might do?
Create a recurring gift. Can’t give a lot right now? A smaller gift, recurring throughout the year, helps us plan ahead, knowing we have your support along the way. Donations equal to the cost of a cup of coffee, monthly for a year, might help provide our counseling department with much needed therapeutic support devices intended to combat trauma students are experiencing due to COVID-19.
Donate a one time gift. Just $200 (which becomes $400) will cover the cost of new class books for students to take home to be used during at home work time, implemented because of our current teaching/learning model.
Support us while you shop on Cyber Monday! We currently have fundraisers set up on Shutterfly, Amazon Smile, and Todd’s where any purchase you make through the sites will earn Salem Academy a proceed of the sale!
Each of us have given and sacrificed a great deal throughout this difficult year. We ask that if you are in the position to give again, you consider Salem Academy Charter School on #GivingTuesday. Let’s grow this matching gift to its full potential!
Thank you in advance for your support. I hope you are able to stay healthy and safe during this holiday season. I look forward to another successful #GivingTuesday!
