BENEFITING: INWOOD ACADEMY FOR LEADERSHIP CHARTER SCHOOL
EVENT DATE: Aug 09, 2015
Inwood Academy is more than a middle and high school. We’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides experiential learning opportunities outside of the school day for our 600 students in Washington Heights and Inwood—northern Manhattan. We give our kids choices that provide them with protection from difficult situations that many of them are exposed to daily: gangs, drugs, or difficult home lives.
Your donations will go directly to four weeks of summer camp:
$20 provides one day of camp for one student
$100 can send a child to camp for the entire week
Since most families in our community cannot afford the cost of a New York City summer camp, we do not charge our families for the day camps. We ask for a family contribution to help with our cost for the one-week basketball sleepaway camps.
Fundraising also allows us to be a unique school -- to provide life-changing experiences for our kids. We serve a community where high school dropout rates are more than twice as high as New York and national rates with a similarly high rate of unemployment. That is why we provide year-long enrichment, athletic, and extracurricular activities to help our young kids develop to their full potential in a safe and nurturing environment.
Donate to this campaign or set up your own fundraiser!
Behind every donation is a child’s future. Thank you.
