Leave No Parent Behind The core of Project Appleseed?s national award winning work to promote parent involvement is our learning compact called the Parental Involvement Pledge. Based on the words of President Woodrow Wilson, the Parental Involvement Pledge is the most widely distributed compact in the United States. By signing the Pledge, parents agree to ?take personal responsibility? for their children?s education by promising to help their children with homework fifteen minutes each school night and to volunteer at their local school at least five hours each semester. Project Appleseed recruits and organizes parent help and support in local schools and school districts by providing schools with Project Appleseed?s Parental Involvement Toolbox through the organization?s web site. Leave No Dollar Behind Project Appleseed has established a model 10 year, $50 million capital campaign to renovate the historic University City High School in St. Louis. This project serves as a national model for alumni fund raising in public high schools. Alumni gifts to public schools can generate billions of dollars to renovate America?s schools. As public school districts deal with more and more budget shortfalls, organized parents, community members and educators are turning to alumni philanthropy to finance school construction and staff augmentation?just as America?s public universities have done for more than a century.
