It’s the easiest and best way to offer dependable support to Young Entrepreneurs in Kern County. Donations will be divided into a scholarship fund for those families who cannot afford the tuition, start-up funding for businesses which young entrepreneurs will start, as well as special programs in the performing arts and the general fund. Set Up Monthly Donations Here!
All Donations are appreciated!! Call or text Donna Schwartz at 661-343-8280 for more information.
The Annual Fund is an ongoing campaign each school year that provides unrestricted, immediate-use dollars that supports Matrix Entrepreneur Academy curriculum, dedicated teachers and overall extraordinary entrepreneur experience.
Your gift to the Annual Fund supports an educational experience, rich in opportunities to learn and grow – both within and beyond the campus. Students stretch themselves in ways they never could have imagined and in ways that change them forever.
Your gift to the Annual Fund today is an investment in the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
Why does the Annual Fund matter?
- The Annual Fund allows Matrix Entrepreneur Academy to meet its annual operating requirements and to provide students with a real-world education.
- The Annual Fund will provide a percent of the school’s operating budget.
- Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of Matrix Entrepreneur Academy. The Annual Fund gifts provide a critical source of revenue to help bridge the gap.
A portion of our need-based financial aid is raised through events, and our annual dinner auction, but we still rely on individual gifts from our school families and faithful supporters in the community to provide need-based financial aid for our students as well as to cover the daily operations of the school.
Each Entrepreneur family is asked to participate in giving to the Annual Fund. Additionally, alumni, parents of alumni and grandparents as well as those in the community who have a passion for entrepreneur education are encouraged to invest in the lives of our students.
Contributions to the Annual Fund are tax-deductible and acknowledgments are sent out for your records. Donation envelopes are available in the Matrix Entrepreneur Academy office or you can make a gift online.
Funds will go into the general fund unless specifically designated to go to a special fund:
_____ Scholarship Fund
_____ Entrepreneur Business Start-up Fund
_____ Visual & Performing Arts Fund
_____ Matrix Entrepreneur Academy General Fund
Annual Dinner Supporting Annual Fund
Each Year we will have an Annual Awards Dinner with student performers, exhibitions of businesses, fundraising activities and other activities demonstrating where our students have achieved success. Your gift to the Annual Fund supports a real-world educational experience, rich in opportunities.
Every single student benefits from the Annual Fund. Tuition alone does not cover the actual cost of the Matrix Entrepreneur Academy experience; the Annual Fund provides revenue to help bridge the gap and provides need-based financial assistance to approximately one-third of our student body.
How you can help? We need to raise $50,000 for our Annual Fund. The Annual Fund campaign continues throughout the entire school year.
As we focus on giving, let your gift to the Annual Fund be a vote of confidence in the mission of Matrix Entrepreneur Academy.
