The Class of 2021 will graduate on Friday, June 25th at KeyBank Center in downtown Buffalo. In celebration of this group of seniors who will officially become Amherst Alumni, we are asking you to make a donation to the Amherst Central Alumni Foundation, Inc.
Because of the pandemic, the Foundation has cancelled its main fundraiser, the Alumni Golf Classic, two years in a row. A donation from you would help ease that loss of these funds. Our generous support from Amherst Alumni allows us to do what we do.
The foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization supporting the Amherst Central School District by engaging alumni and the community. Our donors help bridge the gap between basic funding and what Amherst students need to truly excel. Since 2003, we have given out over $110,000 in grants.
There several ways you can donate:
Donating through Facebook is easy and the Foundation receives 100% of your donation. No processing fees.
Usually, at this time of the year, the ACAF (Amherst Central Alumni Foundation, Inc.) would be making its final preparations for our annual Alumni Golf Classic at the end of July. As with most events in the region, our golf classic was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Amherst alumni involved in the launch and daily operations: Steve Biegner ’89, Mimi (Olin) Fierle ’81, Scott Fierle ’80, Sue (Storfer) Currie ’84, Emilie Piette ‘16, Barbara (Jansen) Maisch ’84. The fundraiser is being sponsored by John Dengler ’82, Jean (Cain) Dengler ’79 and Daniel Dengler ’74.
Fundraiser for Daily Bread Food Truck
Thursday, October 11th, 2018
5pm – 7pm
Under the tent at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church
4001 Main St., Eggertsville, NY 14226
$25 includes food, beer and drinks
Daily Bread Food Truck is Buffalo’s first and only non-profit food share truck. Their philosophy is based on the “get one, give one” principle: during the summer months, when you purchase certain items from the menu, the money will provide a meal to hungry families in the community. 100% of the truck’s overhead costs have been provided by generous donations that allow them to take every dollar beyond supplies and staff costs and put it toward meals during the winter months. UPDATE: On September 13, 2018, an engine fire cut the food truck’s season short and rendered it a total loss. Fundraising efforts are in effect to replace the truck.
