That 6.25 million dollars isn't the only money they have brought in from locals.
It's kind of hard to tell because they give a range of donations and not the specific amount but they seem to have raked in millions more.
Now I bet 17 salaries, and an office, plus printer paper, I bet they have plenty of printer paper adds up but as schools are being squeezed tighter and tighter, is this really the best way the educational philanthropist community could be using their money?
I don't believe so.
These people/organizations want so desperately to be involved in education but at the same time they don't want to be seen helping public schools as they are somehow beneath them.
I can imagine how their thought process went. Cue Scooby Doo flashback music.
We'll give to those nice young men and women killing time before grad school. Give to that 22 year veteran Mrs. Mcgillicutty at P.S. 189 who spends her own money to buy her kids jackets and has to buy her own ink and paper, oh no, No, no, no, no. Did you see the people at the TFA office they have little alligators on their sweaters, we will send our money there.
