Annual Fund Campaign 2018
Jill Marks volunteers two days a week as the NativityMiguel Spanish
teacher. After learning how challenging it was for graduates to handle language classes in high school, Mrs. Marks decided to make time in her schedule as a CPA to teach Spanish on both NativityMiguel campuses.
Doug Knorr oversees the Science Firsthand program at NativityMiguel.
Through the program—and the process of posing questions,
experimenting, and answering those questions—Doug believes the
students learn greatly about themselves.
At NativityMiguel, we are blessed with a dedicated, talented, and generous corps of volunteers.
Through their service, our volunteers provide the extra mentoring and academic support our students need to succeed in school and in life. As we embark on this year’s Annual Fund Drive, we want to highlight a few of the many volunteers who support our mission.
At NativityMiguel, more than 90% of students come from families living below the federal poverty level. Their tuition payments, which cover only about 5% of the school’s operating costs, are a sacrifice these families make to give their children a chance at a better life. To successfully deliver an education that includes dedicated and caring teachers, extended learning time, and personal mentoring, we look to the community to bridge the gap between what our families can afford to pay—and the approximately $10,000 needed to educate each student.
With this in mind, we ask you to support our mission through your donation. Each dollar will have a profound impact on the lives of our students—and will support the work of our steadfast volunteers. With your support, the total of our impact will far exceed the sum of our efforts.
