Fun Run – A Success!

No comments

Dollarphotoclub_52246240_webWISE is pleased to announce our community surpassed our goal of raising $60,000 for the Fun Run with a total net profit of $66,000!


However, 15% of pledged donations are still outstanding and needing to be collected. If you haven’t already, please turn in your pledged donations to the school office, in an envelope with the student’s name on it. Donations can be made with cash, a check made out to WISE Foundation, or online with a credit card. We have the potential of raising a total of $79,000 net profit if all pledged donations are received. Wow!

WISE would like to thank our students, parents, their friends and families, and our community for their generosity and support. With your help, WISE can continue to support the Waugh School District and offer educational programs that enrich and expand on students’ academic curriculum. WISE is proud to support this amazing community we live in. Thank YOU!

Online donations received an automatic receipt. Receipts for cash and check donations were emailed out. If you did not get your receipt and would like one, please email president@wise4waugh.org. Thank you.

It’s Fun Run Time!

Hey WAUGH! — It’s Fun Run Time!

[paragraph extra=””]WISE Fun Run fundraising kicked off this week with an assembly where each student received a pledge sheet and attached envelope. Please help your students contact extended family, friends and co-workers to ask for their support via a flat donation or pledge per lap. Pledges and Flat Donations can be made online at our Fun Run 2015 event page or via the student’s pledge sheet and envelope. To make an online pledge please use the Pledge Form (your payment will be collected after the laps are tallied) or make a donation with your credit card by using our Flat Donation Form. Payments are counted at school daily so please include donations as you collect them, in the envelope provided. You can turn them in each day you get a new pledge or flat donation to be awarded a prize. We return them to you the same day so that you can collect more pledges and donations. The more often you turn them in the quicker you get your prizes.[/paragraph]

[paragraph extra=””]WISE couldn’t have done this without you. Our deepest gratitude to our sponsors, our donors and all those who bid on items. And we also thank everyone who bought a raffle ticket! We met our goal of selling 10,000 tickets and received a $10,000 check from a generous Waugh Family that goes straight to WISE. Our community is strong, our community is generous and there’s a reason our schools are among the best in Sonoma County. We should all be proud.[/paragraph]
