WGE PTA ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN
By now we hope you’ve begun to learn about some of the fun, inspiring programs the WGE PTA pays for — and if you haven’t, your kids will surely be telling you about them soon. These programs include hands-on, professionally taught science labs (Schmahl Science), class field trips, PE with Little Heroes, art, music and much, much more!
Every year, the PTA spends more than $120,000 on these programs. Every penny comes from fundraising efforts managed by parents like you.
The largest, easiest and most effective fundraiser we have is the Annual Giving Campaign. By making a donation, big or small, you will help support a creative and engaging educational experience for all students — while requiring little volunteer time and effort and almost no expense.
- The suggested donation is $300, but we appreciate any amount. Ideally, every family would contribute something — even if it’s just $10.
- Many employers in Silicon Valley offer a corporate match – if you think yours might, check before you donate. Some require that you send your check to them first. Corporate Matching brought in more than $10,000 last year!
- We welcome donations from anyone – grandparents, other relatives and others who love to support public education.
- Your donation may be 100% tax deductible!
- Donate at least $30 and each WGE student in your family can pick a small “grab bag” item in the Tiger Store!
- Donate at least $300 and each WGE student in your family can pick any item in the Tiger Store!
- Donate at least $600 and each WGE student in your family gets a Free Dress Day!
- Donate at least $900 and each WGE student in your family will be invited to an after-school Party on the Lawn hosted by the PTA!
