Govans Community Saves Summer Program

BENEFITING: Baltimore Curriculum Project Inc
Govans Elementary is facing a summer program funding crisis.
Last year we received $42,000 from the Abell Foundation, The Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Family League to support our summer program.
This year we received $0.
Fortunately, Loyola Clinical Centers is coming onboard as a new partner this summer, and offsetting some of our costs by providing literacy instruction to our students.
We need to raise at least $15,000 in order to run a free, streamlined program for fifty K-5 students from July 5th-28th, Monday through Thursday, 8:30am-2:15pm. Offerings will include hands-on STEM instruction, literacy instruction, physical education, technology, team building, arts and crafts, breakfast and lunch.
Govans Elementary is a Title I school. If we cannot provide a summer program for our students, parents will be forced to turn to low-cost, low-quality alternatives. Our students will miss out on the instruction and enrichment they so desperately need to prevent summer learning loss.
Please consider helping us keep these students on track for success.
