What a wonderful kickoff to our Annual Giving Campaign! By now, you should have received your annual donation letter, requesting $400 per student. We are thrilled to report that we have already received $145,000 in donations. Our goal this year is $400,000 in funding to increase student programs..
No gift is too small and EVERY dollar counts.
Our Board Members will be reaching out in the fall to those of you have not yet had a chance to make your donation. If you would like to make a donation today please visit our donation page at http://fuhsfoundation.org/donations/how/. THANK YOU!
