PTO 2020-21 Direct Appeal
Help us raise money to support Van Hise classrooms, teachers, & families!
VHE families and friends,
Each year the PTO makes a single fundraising appeal directly to the VHE community for tax-deductible donations for Van Hise classrooms. This year brings new challenges, including unprecedented hardship for families and unforeseen educational challenges for our teachers and students.
THE MISSION THIS YEAR IS TO PROVIDE SUPPORT TO TEACHERS, STUDENTS, AND FAMILIES.
The generosity of this community is always humbling. Last fall, Van Hise families donated almost $12,000, providing much-needed support to classrooms that enhanced the learning experience for your children.
HELP US RAISE $10,000 THIS YEAR, ALLOWING THE PTO TO SUPPORT THE SCHOOL IN A YEAR OF UNPRECEDENTED CHALLENGES TO OUR FAMILIES, STUDENTS, AND TEACHERS.
This goal works out to a donation of about $35 per student. We understand that, this year in particular, contributing may be difficult. If your family is in a position to give, it would be much appreciated. The contribution would directly impact the wellbeing of our children. Some families might not be in a place to give, so if you are able, perhaps consider giving for a family that is unable. Nonetheless, know that a donation of any size is welcome, and no donation is too small.
This appeal is especially important this year. The PTO will be limited in its ability to raise money via the usual channels available during a normal year of fundraising.
Contributions will go to initiatives specific to the challenges imposed by the pandemic. These include support for technology-related expenses to enhance teaching and learning, money for our grant program to help fulfill the general needs of our teachers, and direct support for families in crisis during this very challenging time. Decisions around spending funds raised are made at PTO meetings.
Donations can be made by clicking on the PayPal button below or by mailing a donation to the PTO (address below). Checks should be payable to “Van Hise PTO”. We always try to deliver funds to classrooms as quickly as possible, so please respond before the November 20 deadline. Remember that your donation may be tax-deductible.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to working through this challenging year together as a community.
