2017 Cardinal Campaign
The CPES PTA is proud to present our second annual Cardinal Campaign, our biggest fundraising event EVER. During this fundraiser we hope to raise $17,000 through tax-deductible donations from CPES families!! From now until October 31st, 2017 we will be accepting donations to reach our goal.
Where do the funds go?
Unlike fundraisers where we sell something and only get a small percentage of the funds, 100% of all funds go directly to the CPES PTA. In addition to all of the activities the PTA supports, the money raised during this campaign will also be used to purchase 10 iPads for rotating use by staff. These iPads will enhance the learning experience and will be used as document cameras and projectors. We are continuing to expand the school’s literature and math resources for both above and below level learners and would love to provide flexible seating options within the classroom!
How much do you recommend I contribute?
This is our ONLY fall fundraiser and 100% of the funds raised go towards the programs and events the PTA sponsors for the benefit of your child and CPES! If you can, we suggest a donation of $85 per family (which includes a PTA family membership) but ANY donation is meaningful and will make a difference!
How do I donate?
Donations can be made online through Pay4schoolstuff.com or by cash or check. If not paying online, please send in cash or check made payable to Cunningham Park ES PTA in an envelope marked CPES PTA with your child. If each family donates $85 we will reach our fundraising goal! Similar to our other fundraisers, please share this campaign with your close family and friends and ask if they would like to make a tax-deductible donation in support of our school.
Our PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax-deductible. Our tax id is 0355826-9. A donation receipt will be provided after your contribution is received. Does your employer participate in donation matching for non-profit organizations? Please check with them to see if your donation to our PTA can be matched by them. Those types of donations will help us reach our goal even quicker and possibly exceed it.
