Cecilia Rawlins Fund(Raiser) Kick Off

Buy tickets! Donate to the Fund!
Join us to kick off our inaugural fundraiser to celebrate the Cecilia Rawlins Fund!

The Cecilia Rawlins Fund, honoring a retired Wiley principal, was established to support students in severe economic distress and families in crisis at Wiley International Magnet Elementary School in Raleigh, NC. The funds can be eligible for things like hunger relief, gas cards to assist during a time of emergency or crisis, summer meals, assistance to climb out of homelessness, and Backpack Buddies. All programs and assistance are provided free of charge.

To date, 100% of the funds to support the charity have come from Wiley staff, families, and the surrounding community. The establishment of the Rawlins Fund as a 501(c)3 means that individuals donating to these causes will be eligible for tax deductions, and the Fund would be eligible for corporate matches where they exist.

You can buy a ticket to come to the event and/or donate to the cause. Here's what your donation buys students who get Backpack Buddies weekend meals:

  • $10 for one weekend

  • $39 for a month

  • 175 a semester

  • $350 for an entire school year
