Through thoughtful and strategic fundraising, Magellan is able to bridge the substantial gap between the funding our school receives and the cost of providing many of the exceptional learning experiences our community values. Magellan provides the following fundraising opportunities each year to continue our mission of ensuring all students reach their full potential.
“It’s Up To Us” Annual Giving Campaign
Contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign support our exceptional learning opportunities by supplementing classroom resources, enhancing technology resources, and funding professional development for our teachers. All Magellan families are asked to participate in this important school-wide fundraiser held each fall. Families are invited to participate at different levels, and corporate matching is welcome. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Unlike traditional public schools, charter schools do not receive capital funds, so the Magellan community is responsible for building maintenance, repair
and construction projects. To generate funds for these types of large, capital expenses, in the spring of their first year at Magellan all families are asked to attend a Capital Campaign event to learn about our school and that year’s special capital needs.
In the past, Capital Campaigns have funded projects such as construction of the stage in the gymnasium, playground equipment and wiring of our building to support our extensive use of technology in the classrooms. Donations to the Capital Campaign can be made in installments over a four-year period.
Magellan Partners In Education (MaP) Membership
Contributions to MaP (our parent/teacher partnership organization) enrich our school by providing cultural arts programs, reducing teacher expenses, beautifying our grounds and building, and assisting student activities. All families are asked to join MaP each year on Meet the Teacher Day in August. For more information, contact email@example.com. To learn more please visit our MaP webpage.
Magellan Mariners Booster Club
Magellan Athletics not only provides opportunities for our students, the games are valuable community-building experiences. The Booster Club offsets the cost of the athletics program through selling Magellan gear, raffling off a prime carpool parking spot, and charging entrance fees to conference games.
