2021 Cardinal Campaign 

11/22/2021: The Cardinal Campaign has concluded. Thank you to all who have given. We surpassed our goal reaching $12,895 raised. If you missed the campaign, we hope you'll consider making a regular Donation.


Please see below for more detailed information about: 

Announcing: the CPES PTA 2021 Cardinal Campaign:


Each year, donations from Cunningham Park families help fund the numerous programs the PTA sponsors. It is because of your support that the PTA is able to provide community events, assemblies, buses for field trips, school technology, and treats to keep our teachers happy! Unlike other fundraisers during which children need to sell something, 100% of all funds from the Cardinal Campaign support Cunningham Park Elementary School.  To ensure we can continue to support our community, this year’s goal is to raise $12,000!


For example, look at how far your donation can go!*

  • $10 buys a new gaga ball
  • $25 buys plants for the school garden
  • $50 provides lunch for all teachers in your child’s grade
  • $100 provides a scholarship for a student to participate in after-school activities
  • $250 provides all supplies for Field Day
  • $500 provides buses for a field trip
  • $1,000 helps the library fund an author visit

Donations of any amount are appreciated. Please choose the level that works best for your family.
