Aurum Preparatory Academy Charter School will serve a student body that reflects the demographics of the community that surrounds it, and is designed to provide a high quality option to our highest need children. Currently, in the target community within District 7, student academic performance does not substantially increase as students progress from elementary to middle school, there is not a district school in the target community that is above the 50th statewide percentile ranking, and there is underperformance and underrepresentation for specific subsets of minority students in charter schools. Our target community is centered around the intersection of 96th Avenue and Bancroft Avenue in deep East Oakland, reaching five primary neighborhoods
Since last spring, Philadelphia school district leaders have been sounding the alarm about this year’s fiscal budget. Even after months of discussions and headlines, schools have opened with fewer resources than last year. On March 28th the School Reform Commission approved a lump sum budget which showed a need for an additional $220 million in revenue in order to provide schools with same resources as the “wholly insufficient” 2013-14 school year (McCorry). There will be many inadequate funding impacts on the quality of the education. Classroom resources would be stripped to untenable levels. The district would reduce as much as $2.2 million funding to the districts’ multiple pathways to graduation program which affects estimated 300 students. Another $1.5 million could be reduced from the elimination of preparation and professional development time for teachers at the district’s high needs promise academies. The district’s building maintenance budget could have reduction in amount of $9.6 million. Schools will be cleaned less frequently as a result. Building maintenance will also be curtailed as a result. District’s school police budget could also have reduction in amount of $2.4 million. School police officer vacancies will be unfilled, leaving an additional 27 elementary schools to share an officer.
As a new charter school located in a vibrant neighborhood in Wilmington, our school has worked directly with neighbors, community groups, local nonprofit organizations and local elected and government leaders to establish a good relationship and prepare the way for our students and families to benefit from our neighborhood and location. The Brandywine neighborhood where our school is located is in the center of downtown Wilmington, easily accessible to many local businesses and government agencies, and area neighborhoods, by foot and by public transportation.

If the current system not the administration calculates that the annually will increase as a chance to reinforce the district where it needs the assistance. While increased funding not necessarily equate to improvements in student performance, it’s funding and where it is clearly needs to be addressed. Ambitious effort to lift student achievement and, fundamentally, to undermine the idea of public
In light of recent events, I feel the need to reach out to our school’s upper level advisors, the Board of Directors. As a tenth grade student at the TanenbaumCHAT Kimel Family Education Centre, the unfortunate closing of my campus, which I have attended for the past year and a half, saddens me. As a result, I believe TanenbaumCHAT must drastically change their financial and human resource practices. In order to create a sustainable, financially secure Jewish academy, the Board must limit the salaries of administration and reduce the administration and support staff body; establish an endowment fund as a five-year bond for all excess money and enact a team of teachers, parents and donors to oversee the school’s spending.
I am reaching out as I am run and operate a similar organization in Maryland, I am in the process of expanding my of the service offered and notice that you have successful offered “Host Family” ; this is a model that I am truly interested in… I am hoping you can assist with more information to include how the process works to include funding?

Collaboration among organization members and community stakeholders is very important, we must begin to study and understand nonprofits not merely as organizations housed within four walls but as catalysts that work within, and change, entire systems. The most effective of these groups employ a strategy of leverage, using government, business, the public, and other nonprofits as forces for good, helping them deliver even greater social change than they could possibly achieve alone (Crutchfield, 2012). There is also an understanding that community partnerships and assistance from caring individuals will be of a great benefit to the organization and the young men they serve. The different chapters in the organization are funded through member dues, grants and contributions from corporations, foundations, individuals and combined federal
Hello everyone! my friend Gabby Aranda along with a small group of us have created a gofundme to raise money to start up a non-profit organization to help women who are in need of health care. After creating the non-profit, which will be called For All Women, we are focusing on raising money for a clinic in Madison called Share the Health which is open about once per month and is a free women's clinic where physicians and residents volunteer their time to treat underprivileged women. Our overall goal is to allow the clinic to be open more often and therefore help more people in need. Click the link to read more about our plans and consider donating! Thanks so much!
As a relatively new organization, WVMPHP is faced with the challenge of developing their donor base by educating them on their mission and goals. There are several strategies WVMPHP can leverage to develop an informed business donor base. Creating a fundraising committee under the board of directors or hiring a part-time staff member to secure business donations. WVMPHP will need to establish responsible individuals for the purpose of seeking charitable donations. Special events like a gala or dinner can yield high revenue returns and the opportunity to educate the community about WVMPHP. Other fundraising strategies to explore are direct mail or personal

Out of 320 students 290 or 90.6% is under economically disadvantaged. This is a high number of economically disadvantaged students.
