Annual Give will kick off on October 2nd and run through October 20th, 2023.
Donations of all sizes are entered and every donation supports Whittier. We are aiming for 100% participation this year in our Annual Give campaign.
Our Financial Goal
This year’s “Wildcats Shine” 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 $80,000. 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.
Our Volunteer Goal
In addition to the financial support, we are asking each family to sign up for one volunteer opportunity this year. On the annual give website, there is a drop-down menu to choose what event works best for you to volunteer at this year.
