Drew is Turning 20 and we want YOU to celebrate with us!

This school year, Drew Charter School turns 20!  Founded in 2000 on the belief that every child deserves the opportunity to succeed, Drew Charter opened as the City of Atlanta’s first public charter school. 

To commemorate this milestone, Drew Charter is producing an 18-month wall calendar, as well as a special edition t-shirt.  We invite you to celebrate with us by sponsoring one – or both  -of these items!  Proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit the Drew Opportunity Fund and, icing on the cake, all sponsorships are tax-deductible. 

About the Drew Opportunity Fund

The Opportunity Fund was established in 2019 to help bridge the gap between current funding and the cost of providing our school community with unique and enriching opportunities that make Drew…well Drew!  Examples of what the Opportunity Fund supports:
