Power of Giving

Dear MDE families,

It is hard to believe the school year is upon us again! It is always fun to watch our little ones reach new milestones in these years of rapid development.

As MDE PFC Fundraising Chairs, we are writing you to first thank you for your continued financial contribution to the school. Last year, we raised enough money to fund key academic initiatives in the form of educational staff (e.g. reading specialists), programs (e.g. new STEM lab), technology (e.g. replacement computers), and support (e.g. supplies for classrooms).

Forty percent (40%) of our funding comes from direct contributions at Prep Day (known as Education or “Ed” Fund). Interestingly, about 40% of our parents participate. Using simple math, if 100% of parents participated, we could fund our entire year of programming and eliminate all other fundraisers!

So we are asking each of you to contribute $200 per student for the year. We recognize that not all parents have that much money to give, especially those with multiple children.  So give what you can! Together, we always figure out a way to keep our important educational programs solvent.

To participate in this year’s giving campaign, please bring cash, check or credit card to this year’s Prep Day OR go to www.mtdiabloelementarypfc.org and use the “Donate” button. And again, we thank you.
