Editor’s note: We are pleased to present the fourth story in our latest blog series, “Foundation for Success: 10 Year Anniversary Celebration.” In this installment, we describe how the dollars raised go such a long way to support the after-school programs at our Dan Donahue Center.
Each school week, hundreds of students stream into our Dan Donahue Center to grow academically, learn about the arts, develop spiritually and maybe even toss a basketball around for a few minutes.
Each of these experiences—and more—in some measure or another are funded by the Foundation for Success luncheon, our premier event of the year.
Over 10 years, $4.3 million (net) has been raised at our Foundation for Success luncheons. Each dollar has had a tremendous impact on the lives of each of our students.
For example, for the past two years 100% of KidWorks students graduated high school on time and continued on to colleges and universities (a much higher percentage than in Santa Ana schools overall).
The majority of the luncheon’s costs are underwritten or covered by sponsors, meaning that almost every dollar raised goes towards helping the over 800 children, youth and families we serve.
As the 2016 luncheon nears, we invite everyone to be part of one of Orange County’s most anticipated non-profit events—one that for the past three years, the Orange County Business Journal has listed as one of the top five fundraising luncheons.
