FoA Annual Fund 2020-2021






Friends of Adaire (FoA) is excited to announce our 2020-2021 Annual Fund Campaign to Make Music Together! Each year, we set a communal goal with the intention to inspire Adaire families, community members, and supporters to raise funds to back a yearly, changing mission. Funds raised this school year will support Adaire's new music teacher and expanding band and strings programs as well as the evolving needs of teachers and students, whether we are together or apart.  

This year is a school year like no other. FoA has already pivoted to help fund newly emerging teacher and student needs at the beginning of the year. With your help, we can do even more to meet the immediate needs of our community this year and position the school for continued success and growth in the years to come. This year's Annual Fund will support:

  • New musical instruments and maintenance supplies for our music, band, and strings teachers;

  • A smartboard and classroom supplies for our music classroom; 

  • FoA's continuing commitment to support as many teacher funding requests that we can each year to encourage our students' growth and learning.

To fund these items and projects, FoA has set a goal of raising $20,000 in this year's Annual Fund campaign. FoA has also committed to contribute at least $5,000 of funds raised in prior years to help meet this goal. This means we still need to raise $15,000 or approximately $35 per student to meet our Annual Fund Goal for 2021 and Make Music Together! Our community is struggling right now in many ways and we know that not all may be able to contribute. Given the environment, FoA will be limited in our ability to host our popular, in person, fundraisers this year, which have traditionally helped us reach our Annual Fund goal. We appreciate donations of any size, but if you are able to give more than the suggested donation or set up a monthly, recurring gift,  you will help fill the gap for those families who may not be able to give this year.  Donations of less than $5 can be made by check, cash or Venmo @friendsofadaire. Please consider becoming a one-time or monthly donor to support Adaire students' continued success both inside and outside of the classroom!

- With Gratitude, Friends of Adaire

      We're proud to support our great neighborhood public school. This year's Annual Fund focus on Adaire's music programs will help all Adaire students. Music has been shown to be an important part of elementary education since it helps students connect with each other socially while also integrating into every other academic subject.
