We’re excited to invite each and every one of you to join us for EIP virtually this year on May 9, from the comfort of your home, from 8am to 9pm
We are also pleased to announce that all donations to this year’s Fund A Need at EIP will go toward the Académie Lafayette Families GoFundMe which is an effort to help our school provide for our families in need.
Additional funds raised through the auctions and donations will go toward the school’s Annual Fund, which provides support for transportation, technology, art & music, sports, nurses and social workers, faculty and interns, library needs and general operating expenses. As a charter school, Académie Lafayette already receives less public funding per pupil than any other public school in KC, and our Annual Fund donations are important to help us cover that difference.
We know it’s not the best time to ask people to give, but for those who are able, we have some great items available for bid in our silent and live auctions, including gift certificates, experiences, and of course one of the favorites each year – class art projects.
We also want you to know that we are approaching this with an abundance of sensitivity by confirming that those businesses that have provided sponsorships and auction items are still able to do so, and we are grateful for their extended generosity.
Whether or not you’re in a position to give at this time, we hope you’ll get comfortable, grab a drink and attend our virtual EIP, invite friends and family across the country and the globe to attend, and help make this the most unique EIP in history.
