Funding for public education is getting tighter and tighter every year, but our students still deserve every opportunity to succeed. There are often needs, or opportunities, that we simply can’t cover with the annual school budget, and that’s where your donation will help.
For example, last year a group of students from James F. Doughty middle school competed in the Maine middle school science bowl (their first year ever!) – and they won! They were invited to compete in the northeast regional science bowl competition in Massachusetts, but there were travel costs that could not be covered by the school budget. We had to turn to donations so that these amazing students had the opportunity to represent Maine as the state middle school science bowl champions.
Your donation will help fund things like field trips, extracurricular activities, materials, equipment, after school programs, or athletics. Please consider giving a gift today.
