Annual Giving Campaign – It’s been a great start to this new school year and your PTA has been hard at work! What we worry about the most at this time is “are we going to raise enough money to support all of our PTA sponsored programs this year?” We sure hope so! That’s why we are again launching our Annual Giving Campaign! This year it will cost the PTA $85/per student to fund all of our current programs. If every family donated $85 per child, we would not have to do any other fundraisers. While we know this isn’t possible, we are asking parents to donate what suits your family. We hope to have 100% participation this year. The amount we receive from this campaign will determine the rest of the year’s fundraising goals. Click here to view the Annual Giving form.
Please give what you can. All amounts are appreciated. The Pierce Downer PTA is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Charleston Wrap (Gifts & Goods Fundraiser) – Packets are going home with your student this week. 50% of all wrapping paper sales and 40% of all kitchen and home items will go directly to the Pierce Downer PTA! You can order online or, with an order form, additional packets are available in the school office!
