If they give money to save the school this year, then what? If the school isn't being managed well enough to be sustainable, it's money thrown away, and disaster delayed for a year or so. No one wants to see their money wasted.
This happened to my old private school. They had a good community. A whopping angel donation came in to save the school at the eleventh hour and then they closed the following year anyway. ______________________________________________________________________________
