Fundraising

Sunset PTO is dedicated to supporting our school and enhancing the quality of education for all of our children. A large part of our mission is to provide additional funding for Sunset Elementary.

 

 

Each year, the PTO Executive Board carefully reviews our fundraising goals and methods, based on the results of prior years' efforts and input from parents and school administration. We work in collaboration with our school principal and faculty liaisons to determine student needs. 

 

Funding is allocated based on their requests, recommendations, and the guiding principle that our PTO supports programs that benefit the entire student body at Sunset Elementary. 

 

This year, we estimate our PTO expenses to be approximately $120,000 - or roughly $160 per student. Although we aim to expand programs each year, we recognize that the needs of our school community are a little different this year. Our planned expenses are intended specifically for community-building programs in support of our students and staff. Any contribution you make toward that effort is truly appreciated and we thank you for your continued support!

HOW IT'S DONE...

Regardless of your family considerations, we have plenty of opportunities to further invest in your child's education, including our annual check-writing campaign, fundraising events, spirit wear sales and partnerships with local and national businesses. 

 

Corporate Donations are also a great way to maximize your family's contribution. Be sure to check with your employer to see if they have a matching program in place.

 

 

Annual INVEST IN YOUR CHILD CAMPAIGN

Each school year kicks off with this annual "check-writing" campaign, which accounts for a significant portion of our revenue. It is also one of the most cost-effective ways for you to contribute to enhancing your child's education, since there are no program fees involved. That means your tax-deductible contribution goes directly to supporting our PTO programs and initiatives.
