The United Way of the National Capital Area and #GivingTuesdayNow are collaborating to host #DoMore24, a 24-hour emergency effort to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations during the COVID-19 crisis.

In support of #DoMore24 I will be supporting The Fishing School (TFS). In 30 years, TFS has provided free academic support, life skills enrichment, and parent engagement programming to over 7,000 students and families from some of DC's most underserved communities.

In response to school closures associated with COVID-19, The Fishing School has responded quickly to: 

• Connect families with essential city resources that both support their students' access to education and address some of the financial challenges they may be experiencing;  
• Launch a robust, daily online afterschool program to ensure our students have equal and equitable afterschool learning opportunities in order to help students remain academically engaged and supported;
• Remain fully staffed, including all full and part time employees;
• Develop training for 30 TFS staff members to keep them engaged and compensated while building important skills for facilitating our program; and
• Equip staff with the technological tools, online learning platforms, and knowledge of ZOOM, Epic, Intelliseeds, and Microsoft Teams to ensure optimal student, parent, and staff engagement

I am proud to serve on the board of an organization that has been focused in serving its students during this pandemic. This year, TFS has a fundraising goal of $10,000 to support their continued afterschool programming, which will help fight the risk of learning loss, low student engagement, and a widening achievement gap our schools are at risk of experiencing. But they can't do this without you!

ADVANCED GIVING IS NOW OPEN! MAKE YOUR DONATION NOW!

On May 5th, the United Way of the National Capital Area and #GivingTuesdayNow are collaborating to host #DoMore24, a 24-hour emergency effort to provide financial support to charitable organizations and those they serve during the COVID-19 pandemic.

I am supporting The Fishing School (TFS) where I've been Executive Director for nearly 13 years. For 30 years, we have provided free academic support, life skills enrichment, and parent engagement programming to over 7,000 students and families from some of DC's most under served communities. Our Founder Tom Lewis (pictured with me), started this important work with five students. Today, we honor his legacy by remaining dedicated to supporting students and families, daily. The pandemic has created a new normal for us all, but the TFS team rallied to be there for those we serve.

In response to school closures associated with COVID-19, The Fishing School responded quickly to: 

• Remain fully staffed, including all 40 full and part time employees;
• Connect families with essential city resources that both support their students' access to education and address some of the resource challenges they may be experiencing;  
• Launch a robust, daily online after school program to ensure our students have equal and equitable learning opportunities while schools are closed;
• Develop daily virtual training and professional development for 30 part-time instructional staff members to keep them engaged and compensated while building important skills for facilitating our program; and
• Train and equip staff with the technological tools, online learning platforms, and knowledge of ZOOM, Skype, Epic, Intelliseeds, Microsoft Teams and other resources to ensure optimal student, parent, and staff engagement while schools are closed

This year, we want to make an even bigger impact with a fundraising goal of $10,000 to support our virtual after school programming, which will help fight the risk of learning loss, low student engagement, and a widening achievement gap. But we can't do this without you! Will you join me in supporting our students by making a gift? Every dollar helps!
