Letter | MI Schools Foundation thanks community

The Mercer Island Schools Foundation is happy to announce the success of its 2012 fall fundraising campaign, which culminated with the annual tradition of Phone-a-Thon on Nov. 13-14.

Thanks to the efforts of over 100 parents, teachers, administrators and other volunteers, and to the generous donations or pledges of many in our community, the foundation is well on track to meet its goal of raising $423,900 to support vital curricula, professional development, classroom enrichment and other programs throughout the school district.

If you have an outstanding pledge, please remember to make your donation by the end of the year in order to take a charitable deduction for 2012.

To make a donation online, or for more information, visit www.mercerislandschoolsfoundation.com.

Year after year, from Phone-a-Thon in the fall to Bridge the Gap in the spring, we are continually amazed by, and appreciative of, the generosity and community pride exhibited by Mercer Islanders.

Thank you for your support!

Mercer Island Schools Foundation Board of Trustees
