Welcome to the ASF Online Community!
We are very excited to be sending you the Ashland Schools Foundation's first electronic newsletter. These newsletters are being sent to parents of Ashland students and our donors. Our intention is to effectively inform you of how ASF donor dollars are making a difference in the Ashland School District, create awareness about the needs of the schools and ASF, and include you in upcoming events.
Don't worry; we will not flood your inbox with frequent mail! We expect to send out a newsletter every month or two. Along with informative articles, the e-newsletter will be loaded with interactive links that will offer you easy ways to communicate and expand your participation with ASF. If you are not interested in receiving updates from us, simply click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the newsletter.

Will We Make It? ... Just $12,000 To Go!
There is just a short time left for the Ashland Schools Foundation to reach our fundraising goal for the 2009-10 school year. In order to fully fund the grants that are currently underway in the schools, we must receive $12,000 in donations by December 31st.
While we can proudly state that we have over 100 new donors this year, we are missing nearly 400 donors who gave last year. If all those folks gave the same amount as last year, we'd be $33,000 ahead of our goal! If you haven't given yet this year and are able to, please give now. If you have an outstanding pledge to ASF, we hope you will be able to fulfill that pledge. And of course supplementary donations from those who have already given are always appreciated!

ASF Memorial Funds Benefit Students
While death is a part of life, it's always more difficult when we lose young people before they've had a chance to live out their lives. One way to help is through honoring and remembering those we've lost through memorial funds.
