Today we are excited to announce that THANKS to the Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band and The Smith Family “Always Am” Fund, we have a "Double Match" challenge opportunity.  Both have committed to donating $25,000. If the community can raise an additional $25,000 that equals $75,000 for Charlottesville City School students!

Ready to Teach
Ready to Learn

Schools across the country are entering a school year like no other, and Charlottesville is no different. In the face of this unprecedented challenge to our children’s education, The Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTOs) of the Charlottesville City Schools have established and are seeking donations to the Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn Charlottesville City Schools Reopening Fund.

This fund will not replace each school’s PTO, but CCS PTOs are partnering to raise funds district-wide rather than focusing on their own schools because we are stronger together and together is the best way to build equity for all of our children. This rapid response fund is committed to equity by meeting
the individual needs of every learner, every day, everyone.
