Money is still tight, however, and during the spring, the Board of Directors focused on fundraising:
In May, the Board met with a non-profit fundraising consultant.
At the end of the school year, the Board sent letters to graduating senior parents.
In June, the Harvard VCO Team provided the Foundation with a presentation on fundraising.
The Magnet Foundation paid the registration fees for the Montgomery County ARML Team.
