The Friends of Skinner North (“FoSN”) 2021–2022 Bridge The Gap campaign is entering its crucial final phase with exciting news! A generous anonymous donor has established a dollar-for-dollar match up to $50,000! Please donate today to help FoSN maximize this generous donation and to help Bridge The Gap!
WHAT IS BRIDGE THE GAP?
Bridge The Gap is an annual drive that allows families to make a tax-deductible donation to FoSN, which enables the administration to plan for the next academic year and meet our school's growing needs. The gap between the CPS budget and the school’s needs grows each year. As you may know, CPS announced cuts of $160,000 in Skinner North’s budget for the 2022–2023 school year. FoSN helps bridge this gap by purchasing supplies, equipment, software, curriculum, facilities improvements and other items that our students and teachers need every day. Funds raised are used to cover school expenses not covered by the CPS budget. Bridge the Gap has a fundraising goal of $100,000 for 2021–2022—we can reach and exceed this goal by fully utilizing the anonymous dollar-for-dollar match!
