Dear Inspire Supporter,

Since opening in 2010, Inspire School of Arts & Sciences in Chico has provided students with a learning experience unlike any other North State high school. Where else can a student major in subjects like theatre, engineering, digital media arts, dance, music, robotics or science?

This is not a one-size-fits-all school. It’s a find-where-you-fit and give-it-all-you’ve-got high school experience.

And now it’s time for this school to have its own campus. Four hundred plus students strong, Inspire currently shares space with Chico High School, but plans are in the works to give Inspire students their own place. In 2019, the Chico Unified School District approved the use of seven acres of district land, so Inspire School of Arts and Sciences could build the school our students and staff and the broader community deserve.

The proposed $20 million campus has funding commitments from the state, the school district and from Measure K, but more matching funds are needed to make sure we can break ground on the new campus by next year.

This Is Where Your Help Comes In

As we enter this holiday season, would you consider helping complete the vision of a home for Inspire School of Arts and Sciences? Your heartfelt donation to the Inspire School of Arts & Sciences Foundation capital campaign will help ensure Inspire students, for years to come, will have the space and facilities needed to thrive.

There are many ways you can give, including through one-time or monthly donations. Another way allows you to give while also leaving your legacy through the Foundation’s naming opportunities campaign. There are naming opportunities with donations starting as low as $250. Have your name placed upon a donor wall. Or perhaps, you or your business might sponsor the campus recording studio? What about the engineering and robotics or piano & music composition labs?

Your name, your legacy.

Whatever the contribution, just know you will forever make a positive difference in the lives of every student who walks the halls of Inspire School of Arts and Sciences.

Information about the school and the Foundation’s capital campaign, including all naming opportunities, can be found at www.SupportInspire.com.

Thank you,

Rose Krepelka, Dan LaBar, Sam Gronseth , Carla Bee, Georgie Bellin, Jennifer Spangler, Nancy Scott Patton , Dave Elke, and Casey Taylor
