Welcome to Oak Park and River Forest High School's team page for Battle of the Bard 2016! By sponsoring our team in this event, you are helping us raise funds to support arts programming and resources for students at TEAM Englewood Community Academy High School, a school identified by the CPS Department of Arts Education as one ready to expand their arts programming through additional funds.
Here's how it works:
Participating schools get awesome folks like you to sponsor their team in Battle of the Bard.
Chicago Youth Shakespeare (CYS) collects the funds raised by each school team, but they don’t keep any of the money.
After the campaign ends on November 14, CYS sends a check back to each school team's fundraiser for the FULL AMOUNT they collected.
The team from Oak Park and River Forest High School will use the sponsorship dollars we raise to provide resources for arts programming at TEAM Englewood!
Other cool stuff you should know:
CYS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which means your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Teams collect the funds they've raised whether they’ve reached their goal (which would be amazing), or not (which would still be awesome).
Quick heads up: all donations made online will automatically have processing fees taken out of them–at no extra cost to you. Donating through this website is simple, fast, and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our team's fundraising efforts.
Thank you for supporting the team from Oak Park and River Forest High School in Battle of the Bard 2016, and please don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
