“Raise Up For Monarch” Fundraiser Helps To Reach More Unhoused Students & Families

Monarch School, the only public K-12 school in the U.S. serving unhoused students, will host its annual fundraiser, Raise Up for Monarch, on October 5.

The event raises funds to serve the school’s community of students, alumni and families, and to nurture resilience in students and alumni, empowering them with the tools they need to succeed.

The Annual Raise Up For Monarch Fundraiser

The event will take place at Monarch’s Nat and Flora Bosa campus in Barrio Logan at 1625 Newton Ave, San Diego, 92113. Guests will be taken on a campus tour, including student presentations and engaging activities at each stop, to learn about the school’s programs.

Dinner, entertainment and programming will follow, including a dance performance by students and a song from an alumnus.

This year’s fundraiser is themed, “Scaling New Horizons,” and proceeds will enable Monarch School to scale-up its programs to serve additional students and families.

“This year, we have scaled our operations to meet increasing demand for our services, from local schools to international organizations,” said Monarch School Project CEO, Afira DeVries. “Thanks to our dedicated supporters, Monarch is entering a new phase of growth, bringing our programs and best practices to communities beyond our school walls.”

Monarch School is a trauma-informed and strength-based community where students can persevere through the strain of homelessness that has affected them and their success in education. This innovative approach to learning cultivates the whole student, opening pathways to opportunity and transformation.
