ANNUAL GIVING HAS BEGUN!

It’s Annual Giving time! Each year, Friends of Third (FOT) raises funds used to support all students with technology, arts, music, physical education, library services, classroom materials, field trips, professional development, after school education support for those who need it and more. None of this would be possible if Third Street relied on LAUSD funding alone.

This year, the suggested donation for each family is $1,250 per student. We understand that each family’s situation is different, so please consider making a donation that is meaningful for your family. Every dollar counts. If your family is in a position to provide more generous support for our community, or if your employer can match your donation, please do so. All families give. All students benefit.

You can set up a payment plan that works for your family at www.friendsofthird.org/donate

Our goal is 100% school-wide participation. If each family contributes, no matter the amount, all students benefit. As an added incentive, each class to reach 100% class participation will have a donut party and your teacher will receive a gift card:

1st 3 classes to 100% = $200 teacher gift card

2nd 3 classes to 100% = $150 teacher gift card

3rd 3 classes to 100% = $100 teacher gift card

Each class that reaches 100% participation thereafter will earn a $50 gift card for their teacher. Let’s work together toward 100% school-wide participation since 100% of our kids benefit from these great programs!

This year’s Annual Giving Drive is 4 short weeks, so don’t wait and make your donation today!


Annual Giving 시간입니다! FOT (Friends of Third)는 매년 모든 학생들에게 기술, 예술, 음악, 체육, 도서관 서비스, 교실자료, 현장 학습, 전문성 개발 및 방과 후 교육을 지원하는 데 사용되는 기금을 모읍니다. 3가 학교가 LAUSD 자금에만 의존했다면 이 중 어떤 것도 불가능했을 것입니다.

올해 각 가정의 기부금 제안 금액은 학생 1인당 1,250달러입니다. 각 가정의 상황이 다르다는 것을 이해하고 있습니다. 부디 여러분의 가정에게 의미 있는 금액의 기부를 고려해 주시기 바랍니다. 모든 금액이 소중합니다. 만약 여러분의 가족이우리 공동체를 위해 그 이상의 더 많은 지원을 할 수 있거나 여러분의 직장에서 여러분의 기부 금액과 매치 할 수 있다면 그렇게 해주세요. 모든 가족들이 기부합니다. 모든 학생들이 혜택을 받습니다

아래의 링크에서 결제 플랜을 세울 수 있습니다.

우리의 목표는 100% 학교 전체 참여입니다. 금액에 상관없이 모든 가정에서 기부하면 모든 학생들이 혜택을 받습니다. 추가로 100% 참여율을 달성하는 각 학급에는 도넛 파티와 담임 선생님께는 상품권을 전달할 예정입니다.

첫번째 100% 달성 세 학급 = $200 상당의 상품권

두번째 100% 달성 세 학급 = $150 상당의 상품권

세번째 100% 달성 세 학급 = $100 상당의 상품권

그 후 100% 참여에 도달한 각 학급은 선생님을 위한 $50 상당의 상품권을 받게 됩니다. 우리 아이들의 100%가 이 좋은 프로그램들의 혜택을 받고 있습니다. 학교 전체의 100% 참여를 위해 함께 노력해요!

올해의 Annual Giving Drive는4주로 짧으므로 기다리지 말고 오늘 기부하세요!
