Fundraising at Longfellow
When you give to Los Compadres, 100% of your donation directly benefits the students at Longfellow. Instead of asking multiple times a year for donations Los Compadres relies on three major events to raise the funds that are needed to support its programs and projects:
- The Annual Giving Campaign (September)
- A student driven fundraiser, for example a Jog-a-thon or Read-a-thon (November)
- The Silent Auction – An adult’s night out, one of our most fun and biggest fundraiser of the year (April)
Additionally, we partner with merchants to supplement our fundraising:
Finally, parent/guardian volunteers also write and receive grant awards to help us reach our fundraising goals.
