Annual Direct-Give Fundraiser

We are SO excited to kick-off the 2023-24 year! Based on parent and staff feedback, this year’s fundraiser will be a direct give model. This means 100% of your donations go to our school and donating is easier than ever. “PANDAmonium” will be our main fundraiser for the school year and the money raised will be used to support students and teachers in a variety of ways (see below). No donation is too small – we are thankful for any contribution that your family can provide. We encourage you to invite family and community members to support your children and their school through this fundraiser. The fundraising platform also allows for corporate matching if your business or company would like to participate. Help us reach and EXCEED our goal of $45,000 – we HOPE to raise an average of $100-120 per student.

We have included links to the fliers below if you want to print additional copies to take to neighbors, family members and businesses.

Donations can be given at, or by cash or check (made out to Penny Road PTA). If you choose to donate via cash or check, please deliver it in the green donation envelope during carpool or place it in your child’s backpack to be turned in as they enter the building. This fundraiser will end on September 29 with a celebratory field day – “PANDAmonium Party” – with activities that will be added based on the amount we earn!
