Tired of being asked to buy a bunch of stuff that you don’t even really want, and only 10-15% of your money actually goes back to our school?
The Cedar Grove PTA would like to make this the best learning year ever for our children despite recent budget cuts in Montgomery County. To do this, we need your help and your donations. Your PTA will NOT sponsor a food or catalog sales fundraiser this fall.
Instead, we encourage you to donate to our “Feed the Bears” direct donation drive.
100% of your money will be used to support PTA programs and your donation may be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
OUR GOAL: 100% PARTICIPATION – NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
As every Cedar Grove student directly benefits from PTA funds, we are hopeful that every family will join us in donating.
We hope to raise at least $15,000 to support the following school programs:
• Computer Carts with access to science, math and reading sites for classroom use in the primary grades (K-2)
• School-wide Assemblies and Guest Authors
• Field Trip supplements for each grade level
• Other PTA activities such as Muffins for Mom, Donuts for Dad, Back to School Picnic and Spring Picnic
Feel free to ask friends and relatives to contribute to your family’s donation just as you would catalog sales.
Corporate Matching Donation Programs
If your employer offers a matching program, your donation can go twice as far toward enriching your child’s education! Please check to see if your employer supports “501(c)(3)” charitable organizations like the Cedar Grove PTA. You can request the applicable form from your HR Department and submit it with your donation.
“Feed the Bears” Direct Donation Drive will run until November.
