Fundraising

Dolphin Donor and Membership Drive

The PTA uses three types of fundraisers: 1) Active, 2) Passive and 3) Service-based. The PTA depends on your donations to fund programs that are NOT funded by the school district.

1. Active Fundraising

For the 2020/2021 school year, the Lake Elementary PTA will not be doing any active fundraising. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we weren't able to complete MANY of the programs we had budgeted for in the 2019/2020 school year, which left a lot of money left over. We will carry this money over to the 2020/2021 school year. The budget for the 2020/2021 school year is available at the Association Meetings, or by requesting it from lakedolphins@gmail.com 


2. Passive Fundraising

Restaurant nights, where you buy dinner at the usual cost, and the restaurant donates a percentage back to the school!

This year we will be dining out at Frugos Yogurt, Flippin Pizza, Grand Slam Pizza, and possibly more!

Also includes collecting and turning in Box Tops, and shopping Ralphs, Food4Less and Amazon.com and Lake benefits!

Collect Box Tops for Education

Look for Box Tops on hundreds of participating products. Each clip is worth 10¢ for our school! 

OR SKIP THE SCISSORS...

USE THE MOBILE APP INSTEAD!

It's the easiest way to earn for our school: just use the Box Tops mobile app to scan your store receipt. It automatically finds participating products and instantly adds Box Tops to our school's earnings online. No clipping required!

Amazon Smile 

Shop Amazon through this link & the school gets a portion of the money: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/33-0300358




3. Service Fundraising

Involves charging for services in order to cover the costs of offering these programs/services, such as Darling Daughter Dance, Super Son Event and after-school Clubs. The PTA does not profit in anyway from these events.

(2020/2021 update: We do not know at this time if we will be having any of these events- updates will be given regularly as local health measures allow)   

Help us support our students by participating in as many of the different fundraising activities as possible. Together we can make a difference!

 


Does Your Company Match?


Many companies give back to the community through Corporate Donation Gift Match, which may help double your donations and volunteer hours to nonprofit organizations such as our PTA.

Please contact your HR and find out the conditions and procedure. You can also use this link to find out if your organization participates in matching program: https://www.matchinggifts.com/rit/.

Some companies adopt Benevity as the donation match portal. Please contact your HR to see whether it works for your company as well.​
