From the Executive Director, Elaine Schear:

InvestCRLS: A New Community-Opportunity Campaign

It’s my great pleasure to announce “InvestCRLS”, a FoCRLS campaign to close in on the opportunity and achievement gaps at CRLS and unleash the diverse and extraordinary talents of our 1800+ students.

Community Investment = Opportunity, Growth, Success

The goals of “InvestCRLS” are to expand student resources and to sustain our programs for as long as they’re needed. While continuing our annual fundraising projects and events, we have added:

— a new major donor campaign that aims to increase individual donations of $1,000 and above (currently our individual donations range from $5 to $6,000);

a​ new “100 by 100” initiative, increasing our partnerships in the business community by seeking the support of 100 Cambridge businesses to each contribute $100 or more annually to a new scholarship fund, for a total of $10,000 each year.

InvestCRLS has begun, and the response is thumbs up! Parents, alumni, businesses, and Cambridge residents who wish to play a role in our public school students’ success, are stepping up to take part in the action.

Together, we are making it possible for every Rindge student to become a productive, innovative, confident, self-sustaining, and caring young adult.
