$50,000 Goal

Support Social Justice Education and help SFCS revive our Travel Study Program!

Our number one priority for this year's Give to the Max Day is to raise $50,000 for a 7th and 8th grade trip to Detroit during the spring of 2024! Your donation will provide us with the ability to grow our mission and expand our vision of raising up a generation of change makers for social change.  

Southside Family School has its own rhythm. The rhythm you feel is the pulse of our unique community.  Multi-aged groups learning together, independent choice in topics explored, creative arts, restorative practices, peer leadership and one of the most diverse staff in schools across the state.   If it is one thing the last few years have taught us well, it is that we are a resilient community of diverse people, who are filled with hope and advocacy for one another.  

Protecting small class sizes, funding field trips, exploring service learning, and building collaborations with community leaders, activists and business owners - as a charter school we depend on the donations from our supporters to provide these necessary resources for students. 

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Southside Family School!  This milestone is an invitation for reflection, celebration, and dreaming.  To support each of these important actions, our theme this year is Honoring Our History and Dreaming Our Future.  Southside's history holds the legacy of an unwavering commitment to social justice, small class sizes that nurture deep relationships and connection, and a travel study program that has supported our students’, staff’s, and community’s understanding of the history of this country, the labor of freedom dreaming, the organization of social movement and change, and the power of people.  COVID 19, and its multiple impacts, put a pause on our community's opportunity for the unique and rich experiences of our travel study.  As we recalibrate and invest in dreaming our future, it is an enormous priority for us to return to our travel studies as a central component of our students’ experience of a social justice education.  In order to do this, we need to raise funds to make travel study both feasible and sustainable.  

Thank you for your generosity and inviting others to share the same!
