At NYOS Charter School we respect the privacy of our donors and are committed to the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all fundraising efforts. Our school will not share, loan, trade, rent, or sell our donor list to any other organizations, be it city, state or nationwide.
As a nonprofit charter school, NYOS receives $1,200 less per student in annual funding compared to traditional public schools. Because of this, we rely on the support of our school community to continue our mission of educating the whole student. Throughout the school year, there are several giving opportunities to help support fundraising needs:
The Champion Program is NYOS Charter School’s annual fundraising campaign. Donations to this campaign sustain our school’s commitment to small class sizes, hands-on learning experiences, and increased resources for our students and teachers.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday encourages a day of charitable giving and philanthropy. Last year, NYOS families donated more than $3,900 to support our school’s community! This year, Giving Tuesday will take place on November 27, 2018, and our goal is to raise $5,000 in just 24 hours!
Amplify Austin is a local day of giving that cultivates the power of philanthropy. Since Amplify Austin began in 2013, $45 million has been raised to support hundreds of local nonprofits. Next spring, support NYOS Charter School during Amplify Austin with the help of our matching gift sponsor. In 2018, NYOS raised more than $11,000 during our Spring Matching Gift Campaign. In 2019, we hope to continue this support for our school as inaugural Amplify Austin participants!
