MAKE YOUR ANNUAL FUND DRIVE DONATION A MATCH
This Saturday's Reading Clubs feature the launch of our 2013
Annual Fund Drive, our most important fundraiser of the year!
An anonymous donor has pledged to match the first $500 of donations made this Saturday at Alta Loma Elementary!
This means that anyone reading and donating at Alta Loma this Saturday will have their donation doubled!
If you are planning to donate perhaps $100 or more to our Annual Fund Drive, please consider announcing you are matching donations made that
up to the amount you are planning to donate.
This is an exciting way your donation can inspire donations from more volunteers!
