you can help!
Looking for some easy ways to support The Museum School? Consider these:
Donate auction items. Have talent? Do you knit or build your own furniture? Can you offer a special service, such as consulting or catering? Consider donating items to our annual "Night at the Museum" silent and live auction, which raises much-needed funds to support the school. Last year's auction raised more than $40,000 through the sale of vacation getaways, golf outings, autographed memorabilia, artwork, crafts, gift cards and much more.
Donate at Finders Keepers. Got clothes, furniture or home décor items crowding the attic? The Museum School has an account with Finders Keepers Fashions, Finders Keepers Furnishings and Finders Keepers Boutique. Donate items in good condition, including men's and women's clothing, shoes, purses and other accessories, and furniture and home decor items. Ask that they be listed under the "Avondale Estates Charter School" account. When the items sell, 45% of the proceeds from clothing and 50% of the proceeds from furniture will benefit the school.
Help while you shop. Programs through national retailers bring additional funds to the school.
