The PTSA is trying to condense our fundraising efforts this year into one big event – our Fundraising Campaign. Our goal is to raise $150,000 which will allow us to support our teachers and to provide all of the wonderful PTSA funded programs Bay Farm provides for the entire year!
$250 per child. If you are able, we are asking each family to donate $250 per student to support our Fundraising Campaign. We know it’s a big ask. We understand not every family will be able to give that amount but our goal is 100% participation so please give what you can! If you are able to donate more than $250 per child, please do so and help support the Bay Farm community as these programs serve all children. We’d love for every family to get involved! Every donation counts.
What is it for? Your donation will allow the PTSA to continue supporting our school, our teachers, and our kids! Here are just a few things that are funded by the PTSA:* School gardens, garden teacher and supplies like new compost bins* Art docent program * STEAM – robotics club, coding club, math club, science fair* Field trips (virtual too!)* Curriculum funds – direct support for teachers to use in their classrooms* And much, much more…
What happened to Adopt-a-Teacher? We have folded our Adopt-a-Teacher program into this larger fundraising effort. Your donation to the Fundraising Campaign will provide funds directly to teachers for use in their classrooms! A donation to our Fundraising Campaign is the best way to support our teachers. Will there be other fundraising events? In the past, the PTSA has been able to hold lots of fun fundraising events like the Gala and Auction. We hope to bring those back when conditions allow but as of now, we have no additional fundraising events currently planned. That’s why our Fundraising Campaign is so important! We need to hit our $150,000 goal to fund all of our programs so if we hit our goal, this will be our only fundraiser.
How do I do it? Click here to donate! And remember to check and see if your employer offers donation matching. Don’t forget to print that receipt; your donation is tax-deductible!
Don’t forget to join the PTSA too! Another way to support all of these wonderful PTSA programs. Please join today!
To make this a community-wide effort, we’ll be tracking our progress towards our goal at school. When we hit our goal we’ll celebrate with a special ice cream-themed party at school.
We appreciate your support! Go Dolphins!
