2014-2015 Westside Atlanta Ch-ART-er School Annual Fund

Westside Atlanta Charter School opened its doors in August, 2013. Our first year as a public charter school was strong and we are moving quickly toward the start of year two.

Please join our community in supporting us with a donation to our Annual Fund to assist the school in its mission to have a powerful, positive and transformational impact on our children’s futures.

At Westside, committed parent and community giving is a proud and vital part of our school. It allows us to provide a state-of-the-art and unique alternative education that families on the Westside are seeking in a tuition-free, public school setting. Giving is completely voluntary and non-obligatory. We greatly appreciate the support of everyone in our community.


Why is the Annual Fund important? What does it fund?
Westside’s Annual Fund impacts every part of our school and extended community: faculty and staff recruitment and retention, technology, visual arts, academic programming, the unique socio-economic diversity of our community, and more.

Every unrestricted dollar contributed to the Fund will be used to provide for the outstanding faculty, programs and facilities that directly benefit our students every day. It will ensure that we can retain the finest teachers and staff and provide professional development opportunities so that they gain new knowledge and skills in their areas of expertise, which in turn will enhance our children’s educational experience. Gifts will also contribute to state-of-the-art technology and new curriculum materials in our classrooms.

How do I make a gift to the Annual Fund?
Westside accepts gifts of cash and checks, which can be mailed to: P.O. Box 19823 Atlanta, GA 30325-0823. Donations are also accepted by credit card or via PayPal by clicking the “donate” link online at www.wacs.us. For more information, please contact Sharita Smith, Business Manager, at 404-228-9678 or online at sharita@wacs.us.

How much should I contribute?
We ask that everyone in our Westside community give at the level that is right for them. Gifts at all levels are greatly valued and deeply appreciated. All gifts are 100% tax deductible.

What is a “matching” gift through a corporation?
Many companies will match charitable contributions by their employees. The company helps to support worthy causes, and the employee can maximize the amount donated to the charity. Please check with your human resources department to see if they participate in a gift-matching program. If so, please fill out the appropriate company form and return a copy with your donation. If needed, please contact Sharita Smith at sharita@wacs.us for Westside’s detailed organizational information.
