This Thursday, November 16th, is Give to the Max Day in the Twin Cities. Here at The Fort, we are celebrating the spirit of giving all week! We're coming down from our most successful ProAm Tournament yet and we are so excited to carry our donors' passion into a week of giving. The Fort team is raising money for our partner, Andersen United Community School. Nearly 1,200 students from Andersen come through our doors every school year and $25,000 will support the entire program. Thanks to our generous ProAm Fund-A-Need donors, we're only $10,000 away from our goal! You can help us meet and beat that goal this week!
We’ve been partnering with Andersen for five years! This year alone, we will reach almost 1,200 students and provide 1,680 experiences! On average, 35 students attend our daily after-school programs and 65% of students have a perfect or near-perfect attendance rate at The Fort. Many students come back two or three years in a row! This past summer five of our Andersen Middle School students were awarded scholarships to Gustavus College for a 4-day experience living in college dorms and attending tennis camps.
Thank You, Donors!
