Welcome to the PTO Active Fundraising Page!
This year will be challenging with factors changing on a seemingly daily basis. Fundraising is a key component in sustaining the many enriching opportunities and equipment available to our children. Learn more about why we need to fundraise. With lost jobs, lost wages, scheduling, and childcare challenges, it is more important than ever to be creative and collaborate our resources to support what is most important to us, our kids. This year we may not have the same events as in years past, but we will work hard to continue to provide interactive and engaging events for our students and families.
The WAVE Fund is one of our biggest fundraisers. Every little (or large) donation all adds up. Throughout the year, we will update our families about what our efforts are able to provide to our students, staff, and school.
We can maximize our WAVE fund donations by reaching out to our businesses and corporations. Corporate donation matching is a program where companies financially match donations their employees make to nonprofit organizations. These philanthropic programs are a great way for corporations to give back to their communities, specifically to organizations their employees care about. Bank of America, ViaSat, HP, Intuit and Kaiser Permanente are just a few examples. All it takes is an inquiry to your human resources department and completion of a matching gift application to potentially DOUBLE the amount raised.
Are you the owner, or part of a business that would like to be participate in our corporate sponsorship program? If so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our other annual fundraisers will continue to include the Scholastic Book Fair, LCM Read-A-Thon, and The La Costa Meadows Golf Tournament.
Dine outs are scheduled regularly through out the school year and the La Costa Meadows' Spiritwear Store will be open for a few weeks at a time for ordering LCM t-shirts and other select and limited edition items in September, November, and in the Spring.
Please continue to check the PTO website for upcoming opportunities and events. Thank you families, teachers, and staff for your continued dedication!
Parents - The administration respectfully requests that no sales pitches be made at PTO meetings. Please direct any fundraising ideas to our Fundraising board members.
