It costs about $17,000 to run the Summer Reading Program each summer.
The cost of providing 5 weeks of one-on-one tutoring, computer and art classes is about $300 per child for the summer.
In order to provide these services free of charge we need to raise around $11,000. This will allow us to serve 36 students.
These funds allow us to provide stipends to 12 teens to work as tutors in our program. We also hire 5 additional teens to work in the Computer Lab and Art Room.
The remainder of the money needed provides nominal stipends to our staff of professionals including a Title 1 Teacher, Reading Intervention Specialist and certified Elementary Education Teacher.
In addition, the funds pay for consumable supplies needed during the program and school supplies given to each student at the end of the program.
We want to acknowledge and thank the following entities for their generous support of our program. Beyond these there are numerous individuals who give generously to our cause. We are so blessed and thankful for each and every one of them.
