Community Engagement & Support

A work place that embraces the community is one that attracts and retains the best and brightest employees. By partnering with School on Wheels and advocating for those children who need your support, you can increase employee satisfaction and create a brighter future for some of Indianapolis’ most vulnerable children.

Join us and find the fit that works best for you…

#PackAPack: Monetary donations are critical to sustaining School on Wheels’ impact in the community, but #PackAPack is a great opportunity for new organizations to get involved with in-kind support. It’s also an important tool for current corporate partners to further engage their employees. Our corporate #PackAPack Challenge partners help secure critical school supplies each summer. The 2021 #PackAPack Challenge winner was Team Agastya with nearly $1,500 in uniforms and financial contributions collected! Connect with Fatima Johnson, Community Engagement and Diversity Strategist, to learn more about summer 2022 #PackAPack. 317-202-9100 or fatima@indysow.org

Fund A Future: It’s estimated that COVID-related out of school time has exacerbated existing achievement gaps for unhoused students by 15%-20%. Financial support is essential to helping us get unhoused students back on track this school year. Just $1,000 covers the cost of tutoring and wraparound academic support for  a School on Wheels student for one semester. Companies who support School on Wheels and the Fund A Future campaign with a gift of $1,000 by September 24, 2021 will have their logo included in a full page School on Wheels ad in the Indianapolis Business Journal’s Giving Guide, published November each year. Contact Chief Philanthropy Officer, Amber Ewing Kostoff, to secure your spot and fund a future today. 317-202-9100 or amber@indysow.org.

Education Celebration: Each year corporations and individuals help School on Wheels raise over $250,000 during our annual event that celebrates the academic accomplishments of children impacted by homelessness while honoring others dedicated to transforming lives through education. The 2022 Education Celebration on April 28, 2022 will celebrate School on Wheels’ 20th year. Sponsor opportunities range from $2,500 to a presenting sponsorship of $25,000. Contact Chief Philanthropy Officer, Amber Ewing Kostoff, to learn more. 317-202-9100 or amber@indysow.org.

You can transform the lives of our city’s most vulnerable children.
