Ashland Schools Foundation
Funding Goals for 2010-11
“SUSTAIN OUR SUCCESS!”
Our goal for the 2010-11 school year is to continue our Library and Literacy grants throughout the district.
With cost-of-living increases and newly negotiated contracts, we expect maintaining these programs
to cost a modest amount more next year.
Our 2010 annual fund drive goal is $280,000 in donations and pledges,
with a Literacy and Libraries granting goal of $220,000.
In the 2008-09 fiscal year, only 17% of total revenue was used for fundraising and administrative costs –
this is low for the education nonprofit industry.
