Our Washington School Foundation Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is proud to begin each school year with our Pride campaign.
Every dollar we raise supports the many programs that make Washington School an enriching, positive educational environment for our children. See more information about what your donations fund below or on this printable PDF: 2016 Pride Handout – English & Spanish
This year’s goal is $165,000. In order to achieve this we need 100% participation, and any amount you can donate is appreciated. Our suggested donation is $500 per child, but please consider donating whatever you can.
The Washington School Foundation is a tax-exempt public charity (Tax ID number 56-2292604) and your donations are 100% tax deductible.
1. Pride box drop off
Located in the school office and at Pride tables, where you can drop off cash and check donations, as well as Pride envelopes that will be sent home with your student(s). Please be sure to note your name and your student’s name when making a donation, and make sure checks are made out to “Washington School Foundation”.
2. Monthly payment plans
Many families choose to set up monthly payment plans, recurring payments that occur for a preset number of months.
To arrange these payment plans, we recommend using the Pride envelopes that will be sent home. There are easy directions for arranging monthly payments of whatever amount you choose for a set amount of time.
3. PayPal donation
We have included two PayPal donate buttons on this page. You can also click here. If you donate here, please be sure to note your name and your student’s name in the comments section.
*Please note, if you would like to set up recurring monthly payments we recommend you use the Pride envelopes sent home with students. PayPal’s recurring option does not provide an end date for payments.
4. In-person donations
Parent volunteers will be available at school for in-person donations and to answer any questions you may have. Keep an eye out for Pride tables at all events and at school.
Please make sure all donations are made out to “Washington School Foundation”.
Thank you for your contributions to this year’s Pride campaign.
