Our PTA decided to try something new, although it’s a trend across the nation, it is to have a Direct Donation Drive.
The consensus is that parents do not like receiving “sales/fundraising catalogs” because they end up doing all the work. We only receive 30% – 40% of all sales. Opposed to a direct donation, 100% of your donations goes to the PTA and it’s 100% Tax Deductible! Each donation tier includes a tile. As you see the increments increase there are more rewards for parents. We are hoping this Donation Drive is successful to avoid sending a catalog home in the Spring. Tiles are included with each direct donation level but are also available for purchase for $20 each. Families are welcome (and encouraged) to purchased more than one tile.
