About this fundraiser

The Verona Area School District is committed to ensuring ALL students have equal opportunities to succeed in school and in life. COVID-19 has impacted some members of our community disproportionately. The aim of this Classmunity fund is to ensure everyone in our community has equal access to their public school education, curricular and extracurricular activities, and any/all BASIC NEEDS required to thrive.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had serious, long-term impacts on our Wildcat Family of nearly 6,000 students that has depleted our previous fund. We are again asking for your generous support to help us build back this emergency fund to ensure we can continue helping families most hard-hit by the pandemic.

Your donation will go toward the following supports for families:

--Housing funds to assist with eviction prevention & rent for those hardest hit economically by Covid-19 and virtual learning. (Other available Dane County housing funding programs will be navigated first before our funds are distributed).

--Utility bill assistance for families who qualify.

--Basic supplies such as personal hygiene kits and household cleaning supplies, seasonal clothing, and other basic needs as identified by VASD support staff.

Any remaining money in this fund that is not used toward direct COVID-19 relief will be directed to family and student needs such as transportation, school supplies, emergency educational medications, family emergencies (house fire, flooding, death, etc.), and other education-related needs so all our students have equitable opportunities.

Thank you for your commitment to our students!
