As a valued member of our community, Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School is seeking your support. Being a public charter school, we receive less state and local funding compared to traditional public schools, making fundraising vital to our success. By becoming an annual sponsor, you not only contribute to underwriting our achievements but also have the opportunity to promote your business or brand. It’s essential to note that sponsorship is a tax-deductible means through which you can make a significant difference to our 501(c)3 school.
Where does the money go?
All sponsorship funds directly contribute to the school’s operational budget through the Gather & Grow Fund. These unrestricted funds play a crucial role in maintaining a low student-to-teacher ratio at ANCS. They also strengthen our farm-to-school and nutrition program, provide support for students with various academic needs and those in special education, and uphold our commitment to offering art, music, PE, and foreign language education to students.
Furthermore, these funds enable us to finance programs, activities, and materials that enrich students’ experiences at the school, while also supplementing teacher and classroom resources. Examples of these initiatives include grants for the school community, yearbooks, teacher appreciation, family assistance, sustainability efforts, and various community-building events like Grandparents & Special Friends Day, Bingo Night, and Run with the Wolves 5K.
It all started with an acorn—a vision to establish a new kind of public school for our children. A school that would elevate academic excellence, foster exceptional parental involvement, and strengthen the bonds within Atlanta’s resurgent neighborhoods. Initially founded as separate elementary and middle schools, ANCS was the collective effort of families from diverse southeast Atlanta neighborhoods. In 2010, these schools united, forming a single institution with two campuses, offering the advantages of a comprehensive K-8 education to ANCS students.
This merger has proven to be beneficial on multiple fronts. Students and teachers now have the opportunity to form deeper, lasting relationships. Educators from elementary and middle grades collaborate closely, creating a cohesive and engaging educational program that spans all grade levels. Beyond the academic advantages, parents can now invest their time and energy in a school where their children will thrive for nine formative years. This sense of continuity and community fosters a nurturing environment for our students to grow and succeed.
Our vision is to be a dynamic learning community where students become life-long learners, develop self-knowledge, and are challenged to excel. The mission of ANCS is to:
- BUILD an empowered and inclusive community of students, parents, and educators
- ENGAGE the whole child—intellectually, social-emotionally, and physically
- HELP all students to know themselves and to be known well by their community
- CHALLENGE each student to take an active role as an informed citizen in a global society
- COLLABORATE with the larger community to advocate for student-centered schools

I am incredibly lucky to be in the position of owning my own business and thus being able to direct what organizations we support. My two kids will spend a combined 17,820 days at ANCS. I think giving a little back is a fair deal for everyone involved.Eric Teusink, Managing Partner, Williams Teusink LLC
