Donate to your Angell PTO Annual Fund
Your entire Angell Elementary School Community thanks you for your generosity!
NEW this year - Each year our PTO spends tens of thousands of dollars to provide enrichment opportunities like field trips and guest speakers, supplies for the school office and classrooms, school-wide compostable products for parties/events, special projects like updating our school library, teacher and staff appreciation events and gifts, and events like our annual International Celebration. In a typical year, we raise and spend $35,000 to $40,000 annually to support the school. Our most recent expenditures by category are in the pie chart below.
This school year, we anticipate spending $125 per student. In an effort to reduce the number of times we ask families for money or to participate in fundraisers, we are attempting to move from numerous smaller collections over the course of the year, to one larger 'Family Contribution' collection in September. The 'Family Contribution' will replace the specific ask for Enrichment Fees (traditionally $75/student to cover Enrichment activities only) and instead will be an unrestricted donation used for the various expenses mentioned above.
Our hope is that Angell families may be able to make a larger one-time gift in September that allows us to forgo some of the smaller fundraising projects (the multitude of dine & donates, shop & donates, salsa sales, etc.) that are often labor intensive and don't yield much profit. Please note that the PTO is not asking for more money, but rather asking for money fewer times. We invite every family to contribute what they can toward these costs by making a tax-deductible 'Family Contribution' to our PTO. If you can afford a gift of $125 per student in your household (or more!), that would go a long way toward covering our annual expenses.
