Why Give?

FATE Foundation furthers Toomer Elementary’s educational mission through fundraising campaigns for specific school needs. Our work gives the school resources above and beyond its APS budget to put towards short and long-term goals from continuing teacher education to capital improvements.

Grants are provided in accordance with an established grant-giving process toward priorities identified in conjunction with Toomer Elementary leadership. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, donations to FATE Foundation are tax-deductible.

  • Classroom resources
  • Campus improvement

2023 Giving Priorities:

  • Audio/visual equipment for permanent student recording studio (in connection with campus-wide capital improvements)
