Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to do some pro-bono work for the Claremont Educational Foundation, designing their 2010 fundraising brochure.
The foundation supports the Claremont Unified School district, providing funding for technology, music & arts programs and general funding to Claremont’s public schools. We were honored to be able to work with them.
A few days ago we heard from the foundation. Their efforts have been overwhelmingly successful. They raised more than $350,000 this year that went directly to Claremont schools. The funding purchased new technology, restored 16 class sections in grades 7-12 and helped preserve smaller class sizes. And perhaps most remarkably, in a time or rampant cuts in education, no Claremont School District teachers were laid off this year.
So, to the board members and sponsors of the Claremont Educational Foundation, congratulations! Thanks for letting us be a small part of your success.
