Celebrating Success

For those of us engaged in school foundation work, May rivals December as the busiest month of the year. End of the year revelry is just around the corner. Districts are preparing to celebrate students and teachers for the hard work they have done this year. How are you preparing to celebrate the good work of your foundation? It often feels like the work of a school foundation is never done. There are always new fundraising benchmarks to hit, donations to secure, projects to fund, and board members to recruit and engage. I hope you take some time this May to find ways to recognize and celebrate the success of your foundation over the past year! Here are links to a few blog posts to get you thinking about ways to celebrate the members of your organization and your great work:
