Online tool sponsored by the APS Education Foundation helps teachers and schools ask for donations for specific educational needs.

October 17, 2013

Go to www.SupportAPS.org to set up an account for your class or school,or to make a donation.

SupportAPS.org works for classroom teachers, and results from the first semester of 2013-14 prove it: The campaign has already raised $20,000.

SupportAPS.org exhausted the $10,000 in matching funds donated by Wells Fargo just a few weeks into this fall’s campaign, said APS Education Foundation Executive Director Phill Casaus.

“If classroom teachers can create a profile and a project on SupportAPS.org, they have an enhanced ability to raise money for their own classrooms,” Casaus  said. “Wells Fargo’s participation this year was fantastic, but it’s something that can go on year-round.”

A recent e-mail from North Star Elementary School teacher Matt McCracken lauded the effort.

“I just wanted to say thank you for this amazing program. Because of the partnership with Well's Fargo and the dollar for dollar match incentive, my class was able to raise over $1,000 dollars! What a true blessing. I've already used some of the funds for science equipment, special projects, and essential classroom needs.”

Here is a list of the top 5 schools that raised the most in donations:

  • North Star Elementary - $5,281
  • Georgia O'Keefe Elementary - $3,450
  • Washington Middle School - $2,040
  • McKinley Middle School - $1,294
  • Madison Middle School - $1,220.

It takes less than five minutes to register and create an account on the www.SupportAPS.org website. All APS administrators and teachers are eligible, and the tool allows teachers to contact friends, parents, supporters through the Internet to ask for donations online.

WWW.SupportAPS.org – it works.
