SAGE encourages Campus Representatives to rally the community at their campuses to support their gifted educators, students, and families.
SAGE Campus Representatives can request SAGE’s assistance in raising funds for specific gifted education activities and materials at their campus.
The contact person for a campus fundraising effort is the SAGE Campus Representative. Please submit this request well in advance of your need, so our volunteer Board has time to review it and ask questions.
Funds will be raised only for items specifically related to activities for gifted students at your school, and that are not covered by the school’s budget.
Funds raised by a Campus in a school year should be spent by the last day of that school year, or earmarked for spending within the next school year. Funds not spent or earmarked will be returned to the SAGE general fund on the last day of the school year.
Describe the item(s) you plan to purchase with the funds you raise. Provide a full description with links, if possible.
