2016 Fall Giving Campaign

Today, we launch the kickoff of our school’s annual giving campaign which will run from October 31-November 10, 2016

When you give to Catharine Blaine’s Invest in Your Child Giving Campaign, you donate to programs and resources that help fuel student imagination and growth.   Without PTA fundraising, Blaine would lose some of our most vital and engaging programs such as:
MIDDLE SCHOOL BAND EXPANDED K-8
CLASSROOM LIBRARIES STEM PROGRAMMING
 WRITERS IN RESIDENCE CLASSROOM
BASICS PROJECT-BASED LEARNING
4TH AND 5TH GRADE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC
WHY DO I NEED TO GIVE?  Our school only receives $75 per child from Seattle Public Schools (after teacher salaries), which doesn’t even cover the essentials.  With your support, we hope to generate almost four times that amount at $325 per student.
 
OUR GOAL IS 100% RESPONSE One card from each child returned by November 10.  Your participation no matter how big or small is crucial!
EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!  Our annual fundraising goal is $250,000 which means that EVERY DONATION COUNTS.  Whether you can give $5, $50 or $500, you are helping to enrich your student’s education and our school community.  All donations are 100% tax deductible and kept strictly confidential.  Don’t forget to submit paperwork to your employer to double your donation if you work for a company that offers matching gifts.  Thank you in advance for your participation!
Sincerely,
Becky Shields & Angela Herndon, Giving Campaign Chairs (GC@BlainePTA.com)
