Give to the Fund Drive!The Paisley Fund Drive is a year-round fundraising effort, and 100% of donations go toward funding key projects supporting Paisley students, teachers, and staff. Paisley does not engage in any other school-wide fundraisers, student-led sales of any products or any other donation solicitations. So, there won't be school-wide wrapping paper, cookie dough, or fun-run sponsorships following this appeal in the future. Our goal this year is to achieve 100% participation among Paisley families raising $15,000. So far we have raised $3,850 - help us reach our goal! The PTSA funds Paisley Provides, a teacher reimbursement program offering $75.00 to each teacher for their out-of-pocket costs for school and classroom supplies, the Panther Rewards Store, a motivation tool for students, and provides guest and teacher hospitality throughout the year. This year, we hope to help Paisley fund new security cameras for added campus safety and another set of classroom Chromebooks. Participation is key! Any questions - contact Rachel Stinehelfer at firstname.lastname@example.orgYou can send in a check to the office with Fund Drive in the memo line or pay online at Memberhub (there is a small fee). https://pmib.memberhub.storeIf you give to the United Way through an employer, please consider specifying Paisley IB Magnet School as your beneficiary.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can anyone give to Paisley?
Yes! You do not have to be a member of the PTSA to donate or to use the online donation form. If you have out of town family and friends that have supported your children’s efforts in Fun Runs and raffles at other schools who would be willing to consider donating to Paisley, you are welcome to download and email the Paisley Fund Drive brochure to them. It includes the online giving address.
How many different fundraisers does Paisley run?
The PTSA Fund Drive is the only school-wide fundraiser held at Paisley. While some individual classes or programs do have sales-based programs to raise money for trips or special programs, Paisley does not do any magazine, food, or cookie-dough sales as school-wide initiatives. All of these fundraisers can be very beneficial, but we want to ensure that if we ask our families to contribute to Paisley, the school will benefit from 100% of the profits raised. There are multiple appeals so you may see communication about the Fund Drive at different times through the year. We are also looking at a variety of different ways to enhance the Fund Drive. However, there are no other items to sell or buy as a school-wide fundraiser.
When does the Fund Drive start and end? When are contributions due?
The Fund Drive runs year-round, and we will gladly accept your donation anytime. The PTSA is a non-profit organization, so your donation is tax deductible. We will provide you with a letter of receipt for tax purposes.
