Hazelwood PTSA Fall Fundraiser
October 6, 2016
9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
The annual PTSA Fall Fundraiser is on October 6 and it’s time to start asking for pledges from friends and family. This is an important fundraiser for our school since Hazelwood is one of three elementary schools in the entire Renton school district that does not qualify for a Title 1 Funding Grant.
This year, we want every family to participate! Every donation counts, even $5!
The Fun Run is one of the major ways we support the school with grants that the school relies on for academic support, field trips, assemblies, music, PE and recess equipment, science programs and much more. In partnership, we can bridge the budget gap, to provide additional resources and learning experiences for the children at Hazelwood.
In addition to being an important fundraiser, the Fun Run is a really wonderful and FUN event for our Hazelwood community. Prizes will be awarded for the top classes who send out the most combined pledges, top fundraiser and much more! Ever imagined being the principle for the day? How about a pizza party for your class? These are just a few of the prizes the kids can win. Stay tuned for more.
Start collecting pledges now!
Our goal is $25,000 – With a community of over 600 kids, with everyone participating, we can achieve this. If we make this goal, the PTSA can grant over $45,000 to the school.
It’s Time to Start Asking for Pledges and Set up PledgeStar!
We are launching PledgeStar, an easy to use, web-based fundraising system. It’s very quick to set up your own page and then request pledges from family and friends.
To get started:
- Go to: http://pledgestar.com/hazelwood
- Enter your name and email address, click REGISTER
- Follow the instructions to set up your own fundraising page.
- Once you identify who you want to ask for pledges, and input contact information, the system will automatically email the pledge request where they can make a secure credit card donation online.
You get notified when pledges are made and can track your progress online.
Soon, look for paper pledges in the red folder for families who prefer using a paper system.
