The Jaguar Fund (formerly the Walnut Acres Education Fund, WAEF) is the Walnut Acres Parent Faculty Club’s primary source of funds to bridge the gap between public funding and the true cost of the full educational experience we all want for our students at Walnut Acres.
Every single student benefits from the Jaguar Fund and 100% of your Jaguar Fund donation goes back into the school. At currently budgeted levels, your PFC spends a total of $550 per child each year to support programs, personnel and materials at Walnut Acres. For the 2013-2014 school year, the PFC is committed to providing classroom and science aides, vocal music, and technology support in the classroom all of which are vital to the success of our children. Early donations make it easier for the PFC to plan their expenditures so the best way is to prepare to make your donation at Kick-Off Day on August 22rd. Donations are however accepted throughout the year on the Jaguar Fund Donation Form which can be turned into the Jaguar Fund box in the school Office.
100% Participation is the Goal!
We know every family situation is different so the goal of the Jaguar Fund is to achieve 100% participation regardless of the dollar amount. No amount is too small, and it will make a difference for our school.
The recommended donation for the 2013 - 2014 school year is $350 (less than $2 a day) per child.
Now more than ever, we need the support of every family in order to sustain the level of excellence expected for our children. The Jaguar Fund is the biggest fundraiser of the year. Please do your part to support Walnut Acres.
