Teacher Wishlist - Level 1
Dear KLS Families,
This year's Annual Fund campaign is dedicated to our world-class teachers!
Each teacher was invited to create a wishlist with special items they believe will enhance the school experience and make learning more fun for your child. Requests from Content Specialists have been added to the most relevant IL wishlist.
We are excited to invite you to browse the Teacher Wishlist below. When you have found one or more item(s) you would like to purchase, please complete your donation using the form provided on the page.
Fill in your payment information and – most importantly – note the reference number(s) in the designated field for the item(s) you would like to fund.
Make your donation now; this campaign is only running for two short weeks until Sunday, May 27.
If you do not specify an item, or the item(s) chosen have already been fully funded, your donation will be allocated to another wishlist item or to the unrestricted individual donations fund. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all you do for our school!

What is the Annual Fund, and why is it important?
At non-profit educational institutions, the term annual fund encompasses yearly fundraising activities that are designed to encourage regular giving. Your tax-deductible gift to Khan Lab School ensures our solid financial future and inspires outside financial institutions to confidently invest in KLS.
The Annual Fund is important for a number of reasons, including that it:
- raises funds for specific projects (such as the outdoor play space) and for unrestricted funds
- establishes community giving habits and enables patterns of giving to be tracked from year to year
- increases donor participation rates
- helps identify potential advocates and volunteers in the community
- clarifies and helps reinforce core messages about Khan Lab School
- makes a statement to corporations, foundations, and publications that you believe in our vision and support our model of education.
Has my family already donated to the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund is a separate fundraiser from the fall auction. It is a special school campaign we will be holding each year. This year's Annual Fund began in mid-May. The idea is to highlight one time of year when we encourage everyone to give what they can (even $10). If your donation was made prior to May and you did not mark your donation as "Annual Fund," then your family's donation has not yet been made to the Annual Fund campaign.
What is the goal and how much should each family give?
Although we have not set a dollar goal for this year's Annual Fund, we hope to fund all of our teachers' requests. We are aiming for 100% participation, and we will share the results with families. We ask that you contribute at a level that is personally meaningful and that makes sense for your family.
Are we able to make donations to the school via donor-advised funds?
Yes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Is our gift tax-deductible?
All gifts to Khan Lab School are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Khan Lab School is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. We issue a gift receipt for each donation.
If you would like to discuss your tax-deductible gift or would like more information about giving options, please contact us at email@example.com.
