Giving, It’s Simple.

How will you give Thanks?

On this year’s #GivingTuesday, the San Marino Schools Foundation ask you to donate generously so it can continue to provide educational opportunities that allow the children to thrive. If you live in San Marino or have children who attend the schools, SMSF is hoping that it is among your 3 primary places of giving. Gifts and donations of any amount are essential to the schools’ success.

One in every five teachers is funded by the San Marino Schools Foundation. If it weren’t for the Foundation’s support, the District would not have been able to re-staff its Visual and Performing Arts Programs this past year. Furthermore, if not for the Foundation’s support, Computer Coding classes would not have the Elementary-MS-High School continuum it does now. None of this would ever be possible without the support of generous donors.

San Marino School Foundation is hoping it can count on your tax deductible contribution to the 2015-16 Annual Campaign. The San Marino Schools Foundation accepts gifts of appreciated stock, as well as checks and credit cards. Please also be sure to include the Foundation in your company’s donor matching programs.

Thank you again for your kind support this Holiday Season and remember, every dollar counts in funding educational excellence!

#GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, show that the world truly gives as good as it gets.

The third annual #GivingTuesday takes place on December 1st this year.
