LATEST ANNUAL GIVE UPDATE
Annual Give has been extended for two more weeks! Please help us reach our goal of $90,000 by November 14th!
Every donor to this year’s ANNUAL GIVE DRIVE is entered to win two Seahawks tickets! Donations of all sizes are entered and every donation supports Whittier!
As of November 1, we need to raise over $17,000 to meet our Fall Fundraising goal and continue supporting the essential staff and services at our planned level.
This year’s “Wildcats Take Off” Annual Give campaign is part of our Fall Fundraising Drive and one of Whittier PTA’s three primary fundraisers. To fund the programs and services we’re committed to support in 2022-2023, Whittier PTA has set a Fall Fundraising goal, spanning both Annual Give and Move-a-thon, of $90,000. This works out to a suggested donation of $250 per student.
However, we know this is a big ask—please do what is right for your family and know that ALL donations are appreciated. From $10 to $1000, EVERY donation fuels the school; and EVERY student, teacher, and family benefits.
Ways To Donate
- Online: One-time and recurring payments available
- By check (made payable to Whittier PTA): attach your check to the “Wildcats Take Off” Response Card and return it in the yellow envelope via KidMail or in the mail slot at the school’s front entrance.
