Events

We have numerous events throughout the year, designed to engage the collective Open School family and also raise money at the same time. Friends of the Open School is responsible for organizing the fundraising efforts at the Open School.

Jamie Shwartz, our fabulous Online Auction Chair, has done it again! 

Jamie and her team worked tirelessly to put together this year's online auction and encouraged bidding in support of our students. Now they will undertake the task of making sure bidders get their winnings and adding some flash sales during Spring Break! With Jamie's help, our community has raised about $12,000 from this event!

Check If Your Employer Matches Your Generosity (Article)

Reminder:  Please check with your company to see if they match charitable contributions, either in part or in full. This is effectively free money for our school, and often just requires a small amount of paperwork, which is often completed by the Annual Giving team rather than you.
