ADAMS ANNUAL FUNDRAISING EFFORTS
Adams usually has 2 major fundraisers to support our students with the General PTA Fund each year, the Big Give and the Auction. However, amidst the widespread disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no auction this year. This means The BIG GIVE is our one shot to raise the funds!
Adams PTA is 501(c)(3) non-profit. Your donation is 100% tax deductible. TAX ID: 91-0963029.
WHAT DO GENERAL PTA FUNDS COVER?
Although school looks very different this year, the PTA and Adams Elementary work together to fund many budget items that maintain Adams' excellent learning experience for ALL students. Funds will be used towards BASIC NEEDS - we have worked to trim the budget of "extra" items this year. Even though costs go down in areas related to in-person learning, fixed needs are still there and are EVEN HIGHER in other categories. Your gift supports hiring and keeping staff to support ALL students (tutoring, classroom intervention, support staff, para-educators), virtual "Classroom" needs (document cameras for EVERY teacher, other technology devices and equipment for a smooth remote teaching experience), community building and maintenance (virtual and in-person events like new student meet-ups and Oktoberfest), family support/scholarships/coupons (BASAP, etc.) and CSIP (Continuous School Improvement Plan) support.
CAN I DESIGNATE FUNDS TO OTHER PROJECTS?
No, we cannot administer money to specific areas. Funding the priorities noted above is the sole purpose of the PTA General Fund and our hardworking parent volunteers carefully manage the budget to make this happen. If we do not make our goal, we will be forced to make tough decisions regarding cuts. Please know that all funds raised directly benefit all students and our community, and all budget designations are discussed at General PTA and Board meetings.
