The Griffin Fund annual campaign is our first and largest Fundraiser of the year. For the 2019-20 school year, the campaign will run from September 9, 2019, to October 9, 2019.
Initiated in 2008, the annual giving campaign, now called The Griffin Fund, is a general request to families to help fund key programs not supported by the district. We want to keep programs at our school that enrich the education of all students. With ever-increasing pressure on district funds, our parent group is setting out to raise more money than ever before.
Every dollar that the PTA raises goes towards funding academic programs and enrichment activities like Reading Intervention, The Glenview Science Program, Music, The Library, Teacher Supplies, Art Program Supplies, Kinder Aides, After School Enrichment Program Scholarships to name a few. The PTA also funds committees and events like Black History Month, Family Pride, Disability Awareness and the Halloween Carnival. Your contributions will go far in giving all of our students access to these great programs and a nourishing elementary school experience. Help us reach our goal of $128,000!
This is the only time the Fundraising Committee does a straight ask. The suggested donation amount is $550 per student or $55 monthly. If you are an incoming TK/K family, consider giving the amount of one more month of your preschool tuition. Every dollar matters. Please give what you can.
We have a New Giving Platform on PayPal with 0% transaction Fees. That’s right! 0% transaction fees when you give online through a one time donation. (Monthly donations incur a 2.2% transaction fee.)
