Annual Ask Campaign
The Annual Ask Campaign is central to the EAT Foundation’s continuing growth and excellence. Tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of educating a teacher attending EAT Foundation’s various sessions. Funds from the Annual Ask Campaign helps “bridge the gap” between tuition income and the actual cost of providing teachers with a hands-on education, thereby, helping us to deliver on our promise to educate our teachers in ag, gardening, nutrition and so much more.
Here are five good reasons to contribute to EAT Foundation Ask Annual Campaign:
Tuition only covers about 8% of the actual cost of educating a teacher attending one of our 4 different educational sessions. The annual campaign is one of the few sources of income bridging the gap between what tuition provides and the total operating budget.
Money from the annual ask campaign helps ensure the EAT Foundation can fund program development which promotes and provides the best in hands-on, integrated as well as experiential learning and a full range of opportunities, resources, and support.
EAT Foundation completely relies on private support to meet new challenges, enhance technology, and improve the overall teacher experience.
The annual ask campaign allows families, individuals, partnerships and companies to make a generous tax-deductible gift which directly funds innovative programs, teacher scholarships, resource and support services, and much more.
Gifts to the annual campaign allow EAT Foundation to strive to keep tuition affordable and make the sessions accessible for teachers to receive an education they would have no exposure to otherwise.
The earnings, interest, and dividends of EAT Foundation Endowment Fund help to underwrite the foundation’s tuition assistance program helping to make quality ag education available to deserving teachers. An endowment works this way: with the find balance remaining intact, each quarter payout is made to support of programs, teachers or groups of teachers in need of financial aid. This type of support provides a lasting legacy to EAT Foundation, the programs and those teachers in need of financial support.
All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
