By Southwest Key on 03/07/2014 @ 06:54 AM
EAPrep is proud to announce our participation in Amplify Austin 2014, a giving day organized by I Live Here, I Give Here to benefit nonprofits in Central Texas. You can support EAPrep during this 24-hour “festival of giving” that provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together and help make our city a better place to live.
As you know, the need for innovative educational programs in this underserved East Austin community is tremendous. This year EAPrep is expanding to 11th grade, bringing our total student body to 1,100. In the 2015-2016 school year we will expand to PreK-12th, serving a total of 1,500 students. With your support, we will minimize our waiting list and serve as many low-income neighborhood students as possible, most of whom will be first-generation high school graduates.
We are so grateful to YOU, our supporters, for your year-round giving but we’re making a special appeal on March 20-21, 2014. Join in and celebrate the generous spirit of our community. PLUS, your gift made through Amplify Austin will be amplified by incentive matching dollars from generous sponsors. Your gift may also help us win one of the four grand prizes or hourly booster prizes during the 24-hour period.
Amplify Austin’s first year results were spectacular. The goal was $1 million, but we saw just how generous Austin really can be. Together we raised $2.8 million! We’re carrying that enthusiasm and excitement forward into 2014, our goal this year is $4 million. Get ready to crank up the giving!
We’ll be amplifying your love for EAPrep from 6 pm on March 20 to 6 pm on March 21. Mark your calendars or go online today and schedule your gift. Go here, then click on the DONATE NOW button and checkout. It’s safe, quick, and easy! You can even use your smart phone.
