OUR ANNUAL FALL FUNDRAISER TO FEATHER THE NEST
Wes Finger, President of Soaring Owls Foundation, explains how the organization benefits Bolton Academy.
HELP US MEET
OUR 2020 GOALS!
Hooty's Nest Egg Annual Fund makes up a significant portion of SOFi's annual budget, funding the extra initiatives that matter most to our school.
This semester, we hope to raise $50,000 and to achieve 100% participation from Bolton Academy's families, faculty and staff by December 18. Gifts are tax deductible and donation receipts will be provided to all donors. Each year brings new needs, but past and current initiatives funded by this campaign include:
Virtual Instruction Needs, Including Technology Replenishments for Students, Digital Learning Supplies for Teachers and Other Additional Resources Identified by Bolton's Instructional Learning Team
Teacher Professional Development, Including Leadership Initiatives
State PTA Membership Dues
Parent Empowerment Nights and Workshops
Staff and Teacher Appreciation
Community Outreach Events
International Baccalaureate Training, Support and Materials
Teacher Reimbursements for Educational Materials
Cultural Events and Field Trips
REASONS TO GIVE
While the property taxes you pay are distributed among all APS schools for district-wide initiatives, when you give to the Hooty’s Nest Egg Annual Fund, you’re supporting specific, desired initiatives for just one school: Bolton Academy. That means our kids, teachers and community benefit beyond the APS standard in ways that make the most sense for our school.
Full participation by our key stakeholders demonstrates commitment from the Bolton Academy community to our students' achievement and success. We can’t think of a better message to send to our kids and the broader Westside community about why Bolton Academy is a great place to learn.
YES, OWL CONTRIBUTE!
The suggested gift is $150 per student, but we gratefully accept gifts of all amounts and simply ask that you give as generously as you are able. We are aiming for 100% participation from families and staff and any amount counts! Also, keep in mind that you can pay over time as a recurring monthly donation.
Every donor level includes PTA membership and a Bolton spirit bookmark.
To pay by check, please send us your payment, along with a note including your name, address,
phone number, email and your child(ren)'s teacher(s) to
PO Box 20051 | Atlanta, GA 30325.

Our squad could always use more brainpower, more helping hands and more advocates to help spread the word about the work we do. Whether you have bandwidth for one event or are interested in a longer-term commitment, we'd love to discuss how you can contribute.
