Our annual Direct Drive is an opportunity for you to invest directly in the education of your child and the children of the whole Spencer Butte community. While we all wish school district funds would cover the entire cost necessary to achieve reasonable class sizes, each year we face the prospect of staffing and budget cuts. But with the ongoing success of this annual fundraising effort, Spencer Butte Middle School has been able to maintain core programs and keep our library open. Your contribution is one those key supports that ensures a high level of education and opportunity for your student and others. In addition to smaller class sizes, your donation makes it possible to offer valuable music, arts, and foreign language programs.
Working together, we can continue to make Spencer Butte Middle School one of the best places in Oregon for students to learn and grow. Our fundraising goal this year is $25,000 by March 1st.
How can you help?
- Write a check. If every family gave $55.00 per child, we would reach our goal of $25,000. We know some families cannot afford $55.00, so anything you can give will be put to good use. Your contribution combined with others will truly help. If you are in a position to give more, larger gifts are very helpful. There is no upper or lower limit.
- Start automatic monthly payments to SBMS through the Eugene Education Fund: http://eeflane.org/donate_now/monthly_donations
- Employer match programs. Check to see if your employer has such a program.
- Grandparents and other extended family are invited to support our students-pass on our need to others in your community circle.
Parents of eighth-graders: Your gift will benefit our school; just as last year’s outgoing eighth grade families supported your child by donating to Spencer Butte. We appreciate your “legacy” gift.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
