I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra Educational Foundation meets fundraising goal

The Alhambra Educational Foundation met its 2013-14 fundraising goal, raising $300,000 for music education and college and career counseling for the Alhambra Unified School District. The district's nonprofit fundraising partner will thank those who donated by placing signs in their yards that read “We Support AEF – Thank You."

AEF volunteers will spread out over Alhambra, Monterey Park, Rosemead, and San Gabriel in September to place the signs in the yards of donors who contributed to the "Music & More" campaign between Aug. 1, 2013, and Aug. 15, 2014. AEF will remove the signs after two weeks.

The "Music & More" campaign funded music instruction for K-3 students and band and orchestra programs for students in 4th-8th grade. The campaign also funded two new college and career counseling positions for the district's three high schools and field trips to local universities for interested AUSD juniors and seniors. The programs will be implemented in the fall.

“We’re thrilled and proud that our community came together to support the Foundation and our wonderful Alhambra Unified public schools,” said AEF President Steve Perry in a statement.  “Reaching our $300,000 goal was possible because of the generosity of our entire community. Special thanks go to the Hilton Los Angeles/San Gabriel and to all our Service to Education Gala and Taste of Alhambra sponsors and attendees.”

Residents may contribute to the "Music & More" campaign until Aug. 15. For more information about how to donate, visit the AEF website.
