Annual Fund: Growing Together!
This year we celebrate our 10th year as a school. In these past years, we have grown from just over 200 to over 700 students, graduated 6 classes of seniors, completed construction of our permanent building, and continued to grow and improve even through the COVID-19 crisis. Our success is driven by our commitment to a student-centered education, where every student is known and supported by our passionate and caring staff.
Our 2023-2024 Annual Fund Campaign makes a difference to every single student in our school. Proceeds from the Annual Fund support programs like arts education, athletics, technology and STEM opportunities, as well as services that help us meet the needs of every student, such as our bus transportation and school nutrition program. As a tuition-free public charter school, we do not receive funding for our buildings, buses, or any share of the state lottery funds that are provided to local district schools. Your gift helps us close the gap between the true cost of the high-quality education we provide and the public funds we receive.
Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities
Are you looking for a great way to promote your local business, while doing something wonderful for students? Become an Annual Fund Sponsor with FSI! We are a 501(c)3 non-profit (tax id: 46-1548530) and your donation would be fully deductible to the extent allowed by law. In exchange, we would be honored to promote your business all year! Please review the sponsorship levels to see how we can partner.
Your annual fund sponsorship will help in concrete ways that affect every student. Sponsorships help to pay for student transportation, support our theatre, music, arts, and sports programs, and support more technology in our classrooms! Sponsorships also help us provide scholarships for students to participate in grade-level outdoor leadership trips and field trips to learn in our community.
Here’s everything you need to become a Corporate Sponsor:
