Thank You Donors!

Three girls eating lunch at Almond Acres Charter Academy

Our first-ever fundraising campaign wrapped on December 31, and we are excited to report that it was a wonderful success! We set the goal high and our Almond Acres family stepped up with generous gifts. By the end of the year, $67,900 was raised to fund the purchase of playground equipment for our new campus. We are currently designing the playground, and hope to start installation this spring. Some of that money will also be used to purchase much-needed recreation equipment for the gym and play field, to decorate our new courtyard, and more. Thank you to all the donors who participated – your gifts really make a difference!

If you are interested in participating in the Completing Our Campus campaign, we still have some items that need to be funded. Click here to learn more about the projects on our wish list, and to make a fully tax-deductible gift. Every gift counts, in any amount! Thank you for being a part of the Almond Acres family!
