What a strong and giving community we are a part of through North Branch School! As founder, Charlotte has created an atmosphere of caring and action that shines throughout the year, but it was especially evident yesterday. On #GivingTuesday NBS received 95 gifts, from parents, teachers, grandparents, board members, alums, former families, and community members, totaling with our matching donations $20,520!!!!!!
Thank you to:
*All of our generous donors: it took every gift and every dollar to reach this total,
*Those who increased their giving impact by making their donation a monthly gift,
*Our matching donors – Ellen Bouton, Bart Biggs, Ian & Aaron Kelly, Becky Lindsay & Scott Pearce, and an anonymous community member – for the inspiring $5,000 in matching gifts,
*David and Elizabeth Ferrall for covering the PayPal fees incurred on #GivingTuesday,
*Monica Bautista and crew for creating the fabulous and fun #GivingTuesday videos, and
*The generous folks at LockN’ for donating a pair of tickets and swag as an incentive for the day.
Because 100% of tuition goes towards salaries and health care benefits, North Branch relies on donations to cover the day-to-day expenses that keep the school running so the students and teachers can discover, explore, learn, and create together. This #GivingTuesday takes NBS a big step towards meeting those needs! THANK YOU!!
