Donor offers to match dollars raised for burned playgrounds replacement

e-Connections Post

A donor who wishes to remain anonymous has generously agreed to match every dollar that is raised by Sacramento Unified Education Foundation to pay the costs of replacing playground structures damaged by arson this summer at Caroline Wenzel and John Sloat elementary schools.

So far, $13,000 has been raised. However, the district’s insurance deductible is $25,000 for each structure.

Without donations, the $50,000 will come out of the general fund budget, further hampering the district’s work to rebound from recessionary budget cuts. Click here for more information on the fundraising effort.
