Fundraising

The PTA under­takes fundrais­ing activ­i­ties in order to fund stu­dent enrich­ment pro­grams, show appre­ci­a­tion for our teach­ers, offer finan­cial help for stu­dents in need, and to sup­port the learn­ing envi­ron­ment at Mitchell.

Direct Donation Campaign

The main fundrais­ing activ­i­ty each year for the Mitchell PTA is a direct dona­tion cam­paign. Over the years the PTA found that oth­er fundrais­ing events required hours of vol­un­teer time and a per­cent­age of the mon­ey lost to fundrais­ing com­pa­nies. Direct dona­tions are tax deductible and 100% of the mon­ey goes to sup­port Mitchell pro­grams and the school.

Please con­sid­er a dona­tion in any amount to sup­port the pro­gram­ming, stu­dents, teach­ers and school. Dona­tions are accept­ed at any time and can be sub­mit­ted online or print this form and bring it in to the school.

Other Fundraising Activities

Barnes & Noble Night: A fun night at B&N with stu­dent per­for­mances. Barnes & Noble donates a per­cent­age of sales from that day to the PTA.

Box Tops and Labels for Edu­ca­tion: These nation­al pro­grams pro­vide mon­ey to the PTA for all labels col­lect­ed and sub­mit­ted.

Orig­i­nal Works: This art pro­gram turns stu­dents’ works into pro­fes­sion­al­ly made prod­ucts per­fect for gifts and memen­tos just in time for Hol­i­day giv­ing.

Fundraising Principles

1.       Fundrais­ing is not a pri­ma­ry part of the PTA mis­sion.

2.       PTA rais­es funds to enhance the edu­ca­tion of our chil­dren.

3.       PTA advo­cates for ade­quate fund­ing for our schools from those gov­ern­men­tal bod­ies that have the legal respon­si­bil­i­ty of meet­ing those needs (coun­ty school board, state leg­is­la­ture,  and fed­er­al leg­is­la­ture).
