On Wednesday, May 10, Harbor School invites you to join others in our community for The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG - a one-day online giving event to raise funds for nonprofit organizations in the Puget Sound region! This year marks Harbor School's 5th year as a participating GiveBIG member. All proceeds raised for Harbor School during GiveBIG will be dedicated to our Financial Aid & Scholarship programs.
Since 2013, Harbor School has benefited tremendously as a GiveBIG non-profit participant. Over $48,000 has been raised in the past 4 years -- a significant contribution for a small non-profit independent school of our size! In fact, GiveBIG has become our spring-focused fundraising drive to help us reach our annual Harbor Fund goals for the school year (which ends in June). This year, we will be putting our focus on Financial Aid.
Focus on Financial Aid
Harbor School will dedicate all funds raised through GiveBIG to our Financial Aid and Scholarship programs.
As we enter into a time of change in our national landscape, Harbor School remains even more deeply committed to making sure a Harbor School education is accessible to all. Since our beginning, we have provided financial assistance to families in need. Our philosophy has always been to ensure that a Harbor School education remain an option for our whole community. That philosophy continues to be an integral component in providing an enriched learning environment and diversity at every level of our educational experience, from kindergarten through grade 8. By including all students who belong at Harbor School, we add the rich diversity and inclusiveness that makes our community stronger. By helping others, we all thrive.
Our Financial Aid program provides assistance to families for whom, without such resources, Harbor School and Carpe Diem would not be an available option. With our school's recent growth, the need to maintain a level of support for our expanded community has grown. Also growing is our need to attract those motivated students who might otherwise be unable to afford a Harbor School education. On May 10, your donation during GiveBIG will help us advance the mission of our school and profoundly impact the lives of our young students.
