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!

Handprint Ceiling Tiles

Handprint Ceiling Tiles - banner 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 October 21st, so that we will have enough time to have all the tiles completed and on display for the Thanksgiving Feast.

If you have any questions, please contact Fred Yarger at (770) 973-3369 or fdyarger@hotmail.com.

WE DID IT!!

WE DID IT!!!!!  Thanks to your support and donations, we have raised enough money to continue our Science Program next year.

CENTS FOR SCIENCE  Thank you for helping your children collect change and for giving in car line.  The Cents For Science campaign was able to raise $1,366.70 for Science Lab supplies for next year!  That’s a lot of supplies!

We would also like to thank the Yarger family for their generous donation of science equipment this year.

It’s a job well done!  The Rocky Mount Community has worked hard to fund this Science Program that will give our children the tools they will need to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that will directly impact your child’s education?

The Foundation makes a significant impact on the level of education here at Rocky Mount and WE NEED YOU!  As a 100% volunteer organization, our success is built not only on the generous donations of our members, but also on the time and talent they give. New committees are forming now to support next year’s events.  While we have a great “foundation” for our organization, we are looking for new board members and volunteers to help take us to the next level.  Some positions only require a few hours of work over the course of a few weeks, whereas others are year-long positions. If you’re interested in joining the board, or simply in volunteering on any of the school’s projects, please contact us at info@rockymountfoundation.org. Our next Foundation meeting is Friday, May 10th at 10:00 am in the conference room. All are welcome to attend!  (We changed our meeting times to 10:00 am to make it more convenient for parents of children in preschool or middle school.)

Current open positions for next school year include:

Foundation Sales Rep Chair - minor position responsible for organizing items for table sales at any events where a Foundation table is present, such as Fall Festival, Feasts, etc. This position will take minimal time and will only be needed a couple of times per school year.

Valentine’s Day Carnation Chair - minor position responsible for organizing carnation sales on Valentine’s Day. It would require time directly prior to and on Valentine’s Day and then would be complete.
