We have decided to reschedule the Ninth Annual HOPE Event Stack the Deck for Students, hosted by
Tempe Union High Schools Education Foundation. Like you, we were very excited about the event and were in the planning stages. However, when all is said and done, community engagement also needs a rubric for assessment, revision and growth. The Foundation values our community and strategic partnerships, as does the Tempe Union High School District. As a Foundation Board our desire is to deliver greater opportunity for our District’s students and staff to participate in innovation inspiring activities. We also feel strongly that good stewardship and respect of a donors time and money is critical to maximize opportunities for student and staff success. As part of stewardship we want to provide events that create the best scenario to reciprocate our appreciation to our generous sponsors.
To maximize benefit to our partners we thought it best to reschedule HOPE for a date after the Superintendent transition is complete. In addition, as we move forward as an organization we will be implementing an Annual Giving Program. Our Annual Giving Campaign will take place over the summer and will allow us to form stronger donor relationships and streamline the fundraising process. Stay tuned for details of our Annual Giving Program.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you will understand that this decision made with the sponsors in mind.
