Donate to Play Every Day
Join Madison Public Schools Foundation and Wesley Matthews, Memorial High Class of 2005 and current NBA star, in an effort to improve the lives of students through physical activity.
They are on a mission to remove barriers that stand in the way of kids getting active, from outdated equipment to participation fees districtwide, spurred by Wesley’s generous gift of $50,000. On top of that initial gift, he’s also going to match an additional $50,000 in donations.
Why? Because it’s proven that playing – whether that’s organized sports, physical education class, or recess – has a positive impact on students’ well-being. And today, that’s needed more than ever, with mental health issues on the rise and students up against factors out of their control.
The Madison Metropolitan School District will use your gift through their Teacher Support Network. Their focus: To purchase equipment, cover student fees, and support programs directly related to physical activity that benefits ALL students. Let’s foster their future together.
