What if you could just donate cash today to PTO and be completely DONE with PTO fundraising for the entire year? We think this sounds like an amazing idea. Our goal is to raise enough money through this campaign so that we can do all the things we want to do for the rest of the school year.
As state and local school budgets shrink, our PTO budget must compensate. The Mesa Middle School PTO,a Chapter of the Foundation for Douglas County Schools,
funding goal for this year is $10,000! If every parent donated at least $20 for each of their students at Mesa, then we would reach our goal.
--100% supports the teachers and students (minus fees)
But let's be honest here: Not having to sell wrapping paper? PRICELESS
This school year, the Mesa Middle School PTO won't be asking you or your students to sell wrapping paper, candles, candy, or to get pledges for fun runs. Instead, we are asking you to invest in our teachers and students by donating online (and to share our campaign with your friends and families too).
If we can meet our fundraising goal, here is what our PTO will do for our school:
-- Provide teacher appreciation all year, with meals, drinks, snacks, and more during monthly meetings, student conferences, and holidays, when our teachers work extra hours and are away from their families
-- Provide funding for student events like the 8th grade dance and carnival and International Towne (especially for students who can't afford to go)
-- Provide funds for student clubs like Student Council, robotics, and more
-- Give out Teacher Grants to support field trips, school events, classroom projects, and in-school educational programs
-- Support school requests as they come up throughout the year.
With most catalog fund raisers, only 20% to 40% of the proceeds go to the school. By donating online, you ensure that your tax-deductible donation goes directly to the teachers and students. We can more than quadruple the amount of funds that will support field trips, school events, classroom projects, and in-school educational programs.
Please donate today and share our campaign link with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors. You can pay online today securely and easily. (Just click Donate Now and then choose "Nonprofit's Discretion" from the drop-down menu on the payment screen.)
Some company's will also match your monetary donation. Is your company one of them?
