Have you ever wondered what's the best way to give back to your community? Turns out, there's not just one way, which is a good thing, because we all have different resources and talents. At Guadalupe School, we've made it easy for you to support our important mission of "transforming lives through education" in whatever ways most resonate with you. If you are wondering how to continue your support, or start supporting for the first time, here are some tips of the best ways to contribute to Guadalupe School:
1. Make a monetary donation, so that we can direct funds to the programs where they are needed most. Guadalupe School consists of five educational programs: Adult Education, Charter School, Preschool, Toddler Beginnings, and In-Home. In addition to some government funding and grants, our organization is made possible through private donations.
There are a few different ways a person can go about donating. A check can be written out to Guadalupe School and mailed to 1385 N 1200 W SLC, UT 84116. Or, you can contribute through our online "donate" button. An even easier way is to text the number of dollars you want to donate to our certified text-to-give number, 801-895-4710.
2. Fundraise for Guadalupe, by reaching out to your own circle. Visit this link and click "fundraise for this charity" in order to start your very own fundraising campaign at any time. Such fundraises are especially effective if you hold an event to accompany them, which is why we encourage you to pledge your birthday to Guadalupe School. On your birthday, throw a party and ask for donations instead of gifts, and you can celebrate another year of life while giving back!
3. Volunteer at Guadalupe School as a children's reading tutor or as an Adult Education English tutor. Our volunteers can attest that the Guadalupe volunteer activities are extremely fulfilling, and offer the chance to teach and be taught. Our programs would not be possible without the hundreds of volunteers that fill in year round to help kids and adults learn to understand, read, and write in English.
4. Attend Guadalupe School fundraising events, where you will have a ton of fun while supporting a great cause! Check out our latest one, the UNITE Benefit Concert, and buy tickets for yourself and your family.
5. You can provide in-kind donations privately, or through your employment. Guadalupe School has benefited from the in-kind donations of old librarians and school teachers, graphic designers, and restaurants, just to give a few examples, If you would like to know if your services or products could be used to benefit Guadalupe School, give us a call at 801-531-6130.
We cannot express enough gratitude to those who have supported Guadalupe School throughout the years. Your contributions of money, time, and talent are the backbone of our organization. You allow us to truly transform lives through education. Thank you!
