Memphis Academy of Science and Engineering, MASE, is seeking funding for their 2010 school term. MASE is a charter school here in Memphis which consists of students from 31 Memphis zip-codes that has already failed, or are on the verge of failing their curriculum.
Harold Wingood, executive director of MASE, along with Charlie Quinn, director of development and fund-raising, and Janis Jesse, who is chief operating officer, are going to embark on a fund-raising campaign next month that lets donors sponsor teachers, buy textbooks, and receive technological upgrades.
They are looking for at least $60,000 in corporate sponsorship because that amount will help them achieve the act of buying new textbooks, so they have a lot of work to do until they can reach their destination.
