2016-2017 Capital Campaign

100-for-the-foundation-logo

THANK YOU Rocky Mount Families!  We raised $17,725 this fall during our Capital Campaign!

We only reached 40% of our fundraising goal of $45,000 for the 2016 – 2017 school year — but you can donate at any time throughout the school year.  In order to keep our lab and our fabulous instructor, Mrs. Guckert, we still need your support!! Rocky Mount is one of only a few elementary schools in the district with a Foundation-funded STEM Lab.

You can still donate at any time during the year to help support your STEM Lab and other educational enrichment programs that benefit ALL of our Rocky Mount students.  

Checks are payable to CSF with Rocky Mount in the memo line. Please include your name, student(s) name and email address.

Donors will receive a custom campaign bag tag with every $100 donation and students from families that donate $250 or more will guest host the morning announcements on WRM!

Let’s “Aim for the Moon” with 100% participation from our Rocky Mount families!!

Make a HUGE impact with a Corporate Match!

DID YOU KNOW… Employee matching gifts are often matched dollar-for-dollar, but some companies will give double or even triple the original donation?! Some companies may also give matching gifts for employees’ volunteer efforts?! If your company matches your donations, YOUR Rocky Mount Foundation may be eligible to receive two or three times your original donation on behalf of your family! Below are just a few of the companies that offer corporate matching opportunities:

AIG
Assurant
Bank of America
Coca-Cola
Cox Enterprises
Equifax
First Data
GE
Home Depot
Humana
JP Morgan Chase
McKesson
Microsoft Corporation
Morgan Stanley
Northwestern Mutual
Oracle Corp
Principal Financial Group
Takeda Corporate
Time Warner
US Bancorp
Vulcan Materials

How do I get started?

Thousands of companies match gifts to education, which can double or triple the impact of your gift. You may qualify if you are an employee, retiree or board member of a company that has a matching gift program. Such programs are an excellent way to increase the value of your contributions!

To find out if your employer (or your spouse’s employer) has a matching gift program, simply contact your Human Resources representative for a matching gift form to send with your contribution, check your company benefits site to see if the information is listed or a link provided.

LET’S AIM FOR THE MOON BY GIVING OUR KIDS
A STRONG FOUNDATION IN SCIENCE!

From the President: 2015 Capital Campaign Update

100-for-the-foundation-logo

Dear Rocky Mount Parents,

The Rocky Mount Foundation Capital Campaign officially ended on October 30th. As of November 4th, the total raised is $18,601 with 127 families contributing. This is close to half of our goal of $40,000 and roughly 25% of the families at Rocky Mount.

Our most recent breakdown of the number of families by grade (the numbers will not sum to 127):

K – 27
1 – 22
2 – 32
3 – 28
4 – 21
5 – 22.

This, again, is roughly 25% participation per grade.

This does not mean that we are in danger of losing our Science Lab this year as we have sufficient reserve to cover expenses; but it jeopardizes having a Lab in future years. The goal of the Foundation has always been to raise funds to support the Science Lab for the following year.

The Foundation will continue to accept donations for the remainder of the school year. We sincerely ask for your support. You can donate online  by clicking here.

Thank you to all the families who have already donated.

As a reminder the annual Foundation Auction is coming up. Watch for information in the coming week. The best part of this year’s auction is that it will be totally online!

Sincerely,

Fred Yarger
President, Rocky Mount Foundation

Here is a breakdown of our 2015-2016 expenses:

$30,000   Science Lab
$6,000     Teacher Training / Classroom Grants
$4,000     Educational Publications / Periodicals
(Time for Kids, Scholastic, Georgia Studies Weekly)
=======
$40,000

If you haven’t had the chance to donate yet, you can click here for a donation form  or  click here to donate by credit card.  It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

Handprint Ceiling Tiles

handprints

The Rocky Mount Foundation is excited to offer Family Handprint Ceiling Tiles in the Cafeteria. For many of the children, the family ceiling tiles have become another affirmation that they belong to the Rocky Mount Community. They also enjoy seeing their names and handprints displayed alongside those of their friends and fellow students.

The handprints are made during your child/children’s designated lunchtime, so they will not miss any instructional class time. Each handprint takes only a few minutes, so your child/children will have plenty of time to eat their lunch.

The donation required to add your family’s Handprint Tile to the Rocky Mount Cafeteria ceiling is $30 and will include all children indicated below. If your family already has a ceiling tile in the cafeteria and you would like to add another child (or children) to your existing family tile, you can do so with a $15 donation.

To order, please click here and complete and return this form with cash, or a check made payable to Cobb Schools Foundation (CSF) with Rocky Mount written in the memo section. Please return this form by Friday September 26th, so that we will have enough time to have all the tiles completed and on display for the Thanksgiving Feast.
