SAVE (Social Alliance for a Vibrant Economy) is ready to break out of the lockdown and get back to teaching kids about the economy, business fundamentals, website design and even starting their own business. We believe our schools will be opened enough in the fall that we can offer our after-school classes again. Currently, we are developing a hybrid model that allows for remote learning coupled with small socially distanced classrooms.
To do this, we need to raise funds to pay for materials like computers on a stick and teachers. Each after school class for a 10-to-12-week period costs about $3,000. This notice is an outreach for sponsors to give you an early opportunity to participate in and/or be a sponsor of this fun fundraising event.
What: WE Bowl for Kids Economic Education
When: Saturday, May 22, 2021 from 11 AM to 1 PM
Where: Park Bowl, 4175 Meridian Street, Bellingham 98226
How to participate as a Bowler

Donate $150 and you get four bowling tickets for your family or company.
As all costs for this event are covered by our Sponsors, whatever you donate will be entirely tax deductible! SAVE is a 501(c)(3) charity (Tax ID 46-5395032).

In addition to all of that, each ticket bearer will be given a certificate for one of our classes tailored for either the kids, or adults, or family sessions. Family units can help each other learn about computers, coding, and discover how our economic world is connected!
