It is our goal at Community Roots Academy to not only make fundraising a simple and straight-forward process, but to also provide as much transparency as possible in regards to how funds are used throughout the school year. As a public charter school we have several operating expenses above and beyond what traditional public schools must account for in the annual budget. A few of these extra expenses include our annual campus lease, and an independent janitorial service. These two items alone add up to over $400,000 on an annual basis. These sizable annual expenses combined with CRA’s commitment to a diverse project-based curriculum, mean that our annual fundraising efforts are critical to the success of our academic programs and our school as a whole. CRA’s Annual Giving Fundraising Initiative is one third of our three-pronged approach to fundraising and is an opportunity for our CRA families to directly support our school either through a voluntary single donation, or through manageable monthly payments spread throughout the school year.
