Over the past couple of years, based on input from many Glasgow families, the PTA decided to forego sponsoring multiple fundraisers and instead to launch a Direct Donation Fundraising Campaign. This campaign is the PTA’s primary fundraiser, and requests a direct monetary contribution to the PTA only once for the year. This campaign has been a success in the past because: 1) there are no items such as peanuts, candles, or wrapping paper to sell; 2) 100% of your contribution goes directly to the PTA to support many important programs and activities; and 3) 100% of your contribution is tax deductible. Given last year’s success, we are asking for your support through this campaign again this year.
Direct Donation funds will exclusively be used to support Glasgow PTA initiatives, including fun and educational events as Pizza Bingo Night; Hoop It Up Night; the Book Fair; and the Spelling Bee. Funds also go to the purchase of an assignment book for every Glasgow student. For more details about the PTA budget, you may want to review the budget report, which is available at each PTA meeting as well as the meeting minutes posted on glasgowpta.com.
