For Immediate Release

Eagle Trek 2015 Announces $8,000 Donor Challenge

With less than one week until our Eagles take to the field, the Evansdale Education Foundation is excited to announce that two anonymous donors have challenged our community to meet our fundraising goal with an $8,000 match opportunity through Sunday, September 27th.  All money raised this week will be matched by the donors up to $8,000.

Students are continuing to collect donations from friends and family near and far and canvasing the Evansdale neighborhood with a goal of raising $65,000.  They’ll celebrate their success with the Eagle Trek walk-a-thon on October 1st where every student will walk or run for at least 30 minutes to show their support and excitement for their neighborhood school.

This is the largest fundraiser of the year that benefits both the Evansdale PTA as well as the Foundation. All the money raised stays in our school thanks to the event’s generous sponsors and supports PTA programs including Accelerated Reader, cultural arts assemblies and field trips, grounds beautification and more. The Foundation works with the school’s leadership to make strategic investments including staff. The largest investment to date is the school’s STEM liaison who was hired for the 2015-2016 school year thanks to our generous donors.

Donations can be made by cash or check to any Evansdale student and are 100% tax deductible. You can also easily donate on line by visiting our Eagle Trek page and looking up the name of the student you want to support.
