The importance of giving
Education has the power to change lives and enhance our Community…and you have the power to influence this change!
Community Partners Program
It’s October which means we are launching our 2019 Community Partners Program and need your help!
Do you work for, or own a business that would like to participate in this program? Many employers offer a matching fund program for charitable giving.
Most Bowen community members are aware that our IPS young people are excellent ambassadors in our community and beyond. Did you know that the first point of contact with families new to Bowen is often through a realtor or developer? These businesses are now finding out about our programming, our core values, our middle school team and of course our students.
Many businesses and organizations partnered with us last year, including Dee Elliott Personal Real Estate Corporation, Ames Family Foundation, Osborne Cane Serious Injury Lawyers, Bowen Island Properties, Bowenshire Stonework & Landscaping, Twin Island Excavating, the Cape on Bowen and more. Many have toured our school and have engaged in the work we’re doing with our pollinator garden, the honey bee hive and have a greater appreciation of how financial aid helps us be more diverse.
Building these relationships is mutually beneficial. It creates awareness of the “Why?” of IPS and helps our students and families have a better understanding of what our local businesses do.
We offer those businesses who partner with us exposure in our Giving Stories, media coverage and advertisements in the Undercurrent, on social media and our website and extend special invitations to events.
