Sponsor A School

Sponsor A School to bring resources and support where it will make the greatest impact to local children and families!

Why Sponsor A School?

Schools are the hub of the neighborhood with the primary function of supporting local children and families. When you Sponsor A School, you connect much needed resources and opportunities directly to children and families where it will make the greatest impact. ALSO, because schools are multi-generational, your support will continue to make an impact year over year as multiple grades and generations attend and graduate!

Support a needed school program or initiative that would not be possible without your efforts

Support Children

Know that you are directly impacting a local school to increase opportunities for children

Build Connections

Connect with other leaders who care and are working for positive change in your community

Maximize Your Impact

Your support is maximized year over year as multiple grades and generations attend and graduate

Sponsor A School is a year-round opportunity to connect much needed resources and support to children through their local school. School Connect matches sponsors with a school to help impact the targeted goals of that school.

Initiatives might focus on learning opportunities such as a classroom arts or STEM project. Other initiatives build the whole environment of the school such as supporting staff with a wellness room, students with a mentoring program, or providing wraparound services for families.

Sponsor A School is a year-round program initiated as sponsors become available for School Connect to match with a school.

Sponsor A School initiatives should include the entire community. Perfect for a business team builder, a church service day, a neighborhood club, the local fire department, a school sports team or student council or even an individual sponsor – everyone in the community is welcome!

Sponsorships are school specific based on current goals or needs. Some sponsorships might focus on learning opportunities such as a STEM project in the classroom or the design and installation of a creative mural on campus. Others might focus on the well-being of students and staff. These sponsorships lead to projects like a wellness room for teachers, or new sports equipment for students.

When a sponsor connects with us, School Connect will reach out to a school based on the goals of the sponsor and the needs of the school. Our goal is to match sponsors whose mission aligns with a specific need they can meet at a school.

Yes! School Connect’s goal is to both build community partnerships and meet the needs of children and families at the local school. Sponsorship opportunities include any combination of resources or volunteering and may include more than one sponsor.

Yes! Both individuals and teams are welcome. Reach out to School Connect for information on next steps to info@schoolconnectaz.org.

Possibly! Larger projects especially may involve more than one sponsor or a combination of volunteers from one sponsor with resources provided by another. Please reach out with questions to info@schoolconnectaz.org.

Anyone who is thinking about the School Connect Model, you’re going to realize that you will better utilize your own resources, you’re going to better utilize the resources of the community, and you are going to come up with ideas and solutions that you never thought of before…I would strongly recommend this.

Dr. Joe Roselle ~ Laveen School District

We teamed up with School Connect to do the teacher boxes which we distributed to a few different campuses throughout the Valley and even some up in Northern Arizona. And some of the feedback on those was out of this world! It’s the smallest of things that make the biggest of differences.

John Dowd ~ CORE Construction

I was kinda shocked that in Maricopa County there is an estimated 650,000 people with food scarcity. One of the best ways to distribute food to areas that probably were in higher need than other areas of the Valley, was to do it through the school lunch system.

Why sponsor a student’s STEM “Game Day” Field Trip? While STEM careers are the future of education, the research shows that more than 2/3rds of middle school students do not enter high school ready to start working toward a STEM career.
As Principal Ontiveros says, “You can’t dream about something you don’t know about.”
But together, we can give kids a vision for their career potential, as well as connections and resources to help them prepare. Early support makes the difference. Every student deserves a STEM Choice. Sponsor a student today!
