Cash Donation Fundraiser

Has your family participated in a Parents Night Out?

Did your child enjoy our recent school assembly?

Are you going to the annual Roller Skating Party on January 14th?

WHAT DO ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS HAVE IN COMMON?
ANSWER: THESE ARE ALL FUNDED BY THE EPTO!

Our EPTO is a 100% volunteer-based organization of parents/caregivers who partner with District 23 teachers, staff, and administration to promote learning opportunities for our students and build relationships in our shared community. Funds raised by district families enable the EPTO to cover costs associated with the various activities, programs and materials that enrich the educational experience of our students while bringing the D23 community together. 

Please consider making a CASH donation to our For Our Kids Campaign to help us meet our goal of $10,000. Letters went home in backpack mail last week. You can also find the letter in the below flier section.

This fundraiser eliminates the laborious and time consuming processes of traditional fundraisers that often require students to sell overpriced merchandise door-to-door, collect money, transport merchandise home and then make delivers. Direct cash donations allow the EPTO to keep all the revenue for our students instead of splitting it with a fundraising company located somewhere outside of our community. Finally, your cash donation is tax deductible! 
 
There are two ways to donate:
  1. Go to d23epto.org, click on the DONATE button to contribute via PayPal.
  2. Fill out the bottom portion of the letter and send back to school with a check or cash (attention: EPTO For Our Kids Campaign).
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
