Lake Arrowhead, CA – A strong school system is critical to the success of any community. By making a donation of as little as $10 to the Rim of the World Education Foundation through the Give BIG campaign, you can contribute to that success.
Give BIG is a countywide fundraising effort, participated in by nonprofit organizations across the county. Last year, the Rim Ed Foundation was sixth in the county for total donations, with a total of $11,275 being donated. The Foundation’s goal this year is to have 300 donors contribute $15,000.
Last year, grants totaling $27,000 were given to all the Rim schools, including an anti-bullying training program for Rim High. The Foundation sponsored a five-day college field trip for 20 AVID juniors; donated 22 Chromebooks to MPH, which benefited 52 middle school AVID students; and awarded a $10,000 grant to the ROP classes for much needed supplies and technology. These donations to the Rim of the World Unified School District were made possible, in part, by the Give BIG campaign.
The Rim Ed Foundation invites all mountain residents to make a donation on line prior to the end date of November 28.
