Fall Fundraising Update: Annual Give Extended!
Wed, Nov 2 9:39pm

Congrats, Wildcats! We've made amazing progress towards our Fall Fundraising goal with $75,214.78 raised towards our $90,000 goal. We have just 17% of our goal left to raise! We’re extending our Annual Give Drive through 11/14 and hope to increase family participation to get closer to our goal. As an incentive for participating in Annual Give, we're also entering EVERY donor (regardless of donation size) into a drawing to win a pair of Seahawks tickets for their Dec 11 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Wondering what Whittier PTA fundraising looks like? The Whittier PTA has two fundraising periods raise almost 89% of our annual operating budget’s planned $146,350 income: Fall Fundraising’s Move-a-thon + Annual Give raise 62% and Spring Fling aiming to raise 27%.

Whittier PTA’s planned expenses this year clock in at $166,118 (almost $20,000 more than the income we’ll raise this year through fundraising). Without the support of our community, we may not be able to fund things to the same levels we have in the past.  

Want to better understand how the PTA contributes to Whittier? Donations of all sizes help Whittier PTA provide essential staff and services to our Wildcats. Want to support Whittier PTA’s fundraising efforts this year?
