Agenda Item Summary: On December 7, 2023, Alexandria City Public Schools received an unrestricted financial donation of $14,361.01 from Microsoft Company, to support Samuel Tucker Elementary School. This donation will provide the school with funding to support various needs as identified by building leadership.
Background: Microsoft provides unrestricted, volunteer grants to educational institutions and non-profit organizations where its employees volunteer on a regular basis. Microsoft employees who volunteer can request a grant of $25 per every hour volunteered. These types of volunteer grants have been designed by companies as a way to encourage community engagement among their employees. Microsoft employees have volunteered at Samuel Tucker Elementary as individuals and in groups in a variety of capacities – helping build the school’s new community garden and supporting in the classrooms and school activities like Heritage Night.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends the School Board approve the donation of $14,361.01 as it meets all standards of acceptance requirements.
