Winter Phonathon Volunteers Still Needed!

The Governor's School Foundation is still recruiting callers for the Winter Phonathon, which will be held  February 6th through 9th, Monday - Thursday from 6:00 - 9:00pm.

Dinner will be provided from 6:00-6:30 pm in the MLWGS boardroom; call training is from 6:30-7:00 pm, and we'll be making calls from 7:00-9:00 pm.

Last year’s Winter Phonathon raised over $11,000 in gifts and pledges for Maggie Walker Governor's School, so this is an extremely important part of the Annual Fund Campaign! If you would like to sign up for an evening, please contact Hal Waller at hal.waller@GovernorsSchoolFoundation.org or 354-1566.

So far this year, the Annual Fund Campaign has raised $144,184 for the school, which is 64% of our $225,000 goal. Overall current parent participation is 45%, and here is the parent participation by class:

·      Senior parents: 54% 
·      Junior parents: 52%
·      Sophomore parents: 51%
·      Freshmen parents: 26%

The Governor’s School Foundation’s Annual Fund Campaign supports programs for students, grants for teacher continuing education, and special projects for facilities and equipment. If you have not yet donated, you may do so online at http://www.GovernorsSchoolFoundation.org/makeadonation.html.
