What is the Direct Appeal?
First, from our whole Parent Advisory Council Executive: THANK YOU! Through fundraising events, parent-teacher meetings, sports, concerts, after-school activities, and everything else that happens throughout the school year, you have shown your commitment to giving your child the best possible education and school experience. Your passion is noticed and your contributions are appreciated.
The Direct Appeal is the major annual PAC fundraiser for Lord Roberts Elementary. Last year, the appeal funded our new water bottle filling station, new bean bag chairs in the library, a class set of whiteboards, calculators and much more. Fundraising goals are based on parent priorities from the annual Parent Survey, and consultation with teachers, principals and staff.
To achieve the goals of parents, and the school, we are recommending a one time donation of $150 (tax deductible) per child.
Not every family will be able to contribute this much, and donations of any amount are appreciated. If everyone in our school community does what they can, we will reach our goal. We encourage those who are able to contribute more than $150 per child to do so. This supports other families in our school community who may not be able to contribute the whole amount.
Donations are not restricted to Lord Roberts families. Please forward the direct appeal sent out November 30 to family, friends and others, who would be interested and able to donate to enhance your child’s school. For more information or assistance, contact Lord Roberts Parent Advisory Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is the fundraising for?
Through the last annual Parent Survey, our parent community has indicated a strong preference for funds raised to be used towards the improvement of our outdoor space. Our teachers also support this interest. A parent group has formed to start and oversee this long-term endeavor and the funds raised through direct appeal would be used to hire a qualified planner to do a basic design of the space ensuring it meets the needs of our children, teachers and our community.
How much do we need?
In an effort to support the interests of our parent and school community, this year’s Direct Appeal funds will be used to pay for a planner to do a basic design of Lord Roberts Elementary outdoor space.
Will you contribute $20, $50, $100 in support of our children, their classmates, their teachers, the community and future generations to come?
We recognize that this has been a difficult year for many and that many families are not in a position to donate. We are grateful to those of you who contribute even a small amount.
Some families, or businesses, may wish to offer a more significant contribution to fund a whole initiative. Please contact our PAC Chair at email@example.com to discuss which initiatives you would like to fund. These donations can still be made through school cash online to receive a tax receipt.
