The recent discovery of a termites forced us to tear down our beloved "Fort Rainard" or "Fort Rain" for short.  There is a significant cost to new playground equipment—anywhere from $80-100K for the installation of basic pieces!  

Not long after “Fort Rain” came down, an anonymous  donor came forth with an extremely generous offer: Get 100% percent of Rainard’s Lower School children to fund raise for new playground equipment by October 10th, each one setting a goal of $100, and the donor will match what is raised $3 to $1.

We can’t afford to not to meet this amazing challenge! The children have their hearts set on a new climbing structure and have already begun raising money by participating in fundraisers of their own choice.  

There have been lemonade stands, bake sales, craft sales, read-a-thons, swim-a-thons, and one student even asked for contributions in lieu of gifts at his birthday party! But it's hard for a kid to raise $100 selling cups of lemonade, and so our 21st-century thinkers decided to try something new--CROWDFUNDING!!

This not only allows us to reach our relatives and friends around  the world, it connects us with the kind hearts of new supporters.  Any contribution is welcome.  The children thank you! 

All contributors will be honored at our "Fort Rainard Tribute" page at unless you click "do not publish" on the donation form.
