Friday Harbor Elementary School students won't be asking their parents or their parents' friends to buy cookie dough, wrapping paper, plants, or other items to raise funds this holiday season. Friday Harbor Elementary School (FHES) Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is funding excellence through a social media campaign on Deposit A Gift.
Funding Excellence at Friday Harbor Elementary School, a social media campaign, will take advantage of #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving, Tuesday, December 1, 2015.
The campaign website is fundingexcellenceatfhes.mydagsite.com Your tax-deductible donations are appreciated and help to fill the gaps in the ever-shrinking budgets of schools.
With traditional fundraisers, the school receives only a percentage of the sales, usually about 50%. Using Deposit a Gift (DAG), the school receives, about 93%. If you donate on #GivingTuesday, DAG will waive their platform fee and donate it back to FHES, so the school will earn about 97% of your donation! With a click and a credit card, a safe and secure donation can be made on this site.
The current needs to fund excellence at FHES include:
Transportation costs for Experiential Field Trips K-6 grade,
Art Enrichment Classes
Chromebooks for more hands-on learning in all grades,
Family evening events centered around math and reading.
Luke a student at FHES says, “Thank you for not making me sell any cookie dough! I could tell people only bought it in the past, because they wanted to support me and my school.”
FHES PTA hopes you will continue to support these curious learners by giving directly to their school. If you'd like to do so please send a check to FHES PTA, P.O. Box 458, Friday Harbor, WA. 100% of your donation will be used to fund excellence at FHES.
The FHES PTA and the students thank the community for their support.
