in school account funds stewarded in the 2019-2020 school year by the Alliance

The Alliance for Education works with school-based groups like PTAs, booster clubs and more, to help streamline accounting services for their fundraising efforts on behalf of students. By offering fiscal services to support school-related fundraising, the Alliance reduces barriers, allowing school volunteers and staff more time to focus on school programs and fundraising.

Recent praise for our School Fiscal Services:

“You guys have been great! Responsive, willing to meet to discuss our account and our fundraising efforts, proactive in encouraging us to sign up for GiveBIG and helping us navigate that process, generating donor lists for us. I’m so grateful.”

“Having used your services the last 10 years, I can only give you praise. You have always been available for anything I might have needed.”

“I am pleased with the services the Alliance has offered and provided, but more pleased with the warmth and quick response of the staff.”

COVID-19 RESPONSE

$3M
raised through the Education Equity Fund to address remote learning needs during the pandemic
10,000
laptops donated to students during Spring 2020
25,000
meals provided to SPS students

When schools closed in March 2020, the Alliance for Education immediately began to support SPS families and students in new and targeted ways. Working in partnership with the district, the Alliance engaged with community partners and donors to help meet SPS families’ most critical needs – childcare, access to food, and resources for learning at home.

Spotlight: Education Equity Fund

The Alliance launched the Education Equity Fund at the start of the pandemic, recognizing that students furthest from educational justice were going to be the most impacted by COVID-19. Launched within weeks of schools closing, the fund connected donors directly to a way to support students and teachers. More than $3 million in cash and in-kind donations were raised to provide students with computers, internet access, food and more, and to support teachers in meeting the demands of remote learning.
