One Spark Academy (OSA) has been a lifeline to many families whose children need a small, flexible, and nurturing place to learn. Like many small businesses, the journey through a pandemic challenged us, with three successive years of reduced enrollment, as well as pivoting in myriad ways and through multiple locations. In December 2021, we had the opportunity to settle at the Conejo Valley YMCA, which closed in September 2021. Our move was expensive (we have spent about $44,000 on necessary upgrades) but we thoroughly enjoy this beautiful space, and will continue to for however long we can! The GREAT news is that this year, 2023-2024, our numbers have finally rebounded, almost to pre-pandemic levels. However, we estimate it will take at least two years to rebuild our revenue loss from the past few years. Thankfully, the success of last year’s campaign literally kept our doors open. Because of YOU, our students didn’t miss a beat getting the exceptional education that One Spark Academy provides.
We continue to need your support. Whether by way of a small or large tax-deductible* gift, every single donor helps us by giving what they can. If you donated last year, we hope you consider your investment money well spent, and that you’ll consider donating again this year.
Our goal for this year’s Giving Campaign is $25,000 raised between November 13, 2023 and January 5, 2024. Scroll down to see how we will use those funds.
All donors will be listed at the bottom of this page (unless they request to remain anonymous). Listed donors will include our Friends of One Spark who contribute monthly. No contribution amounts will be listed.
