What is the PTA Donation Drive?

Our PTA decided to try something new, although it’s a trend across the nation, it is to have a Direct Donation Drive.

The consensus is that parents do not like receiving “sales/fundraising catalogs” because they end up doing all the work. We only receive 30% – 40% of all sales. Opposed to a direct donation, 100% of your donations goes to the PTA and it’s 100% Tax Deductible! Each donation tier includes a tile. As you see the increments increase there are more rewards for parents. We are hoping this Donation Drive is successful to avoid sending a catalog home in the Spring. Tiles are included with each direct donation level but are also available for purchase for $20 each. Families are welcome (and encouraged) to purchased more than one tile.

Please see the attached flyer for more information. PTAflyer2013

    When is the deadline to purchase the family tile that can be displayed at the school?

    Hello, I was very confused with the donation level for the family tiles. I purchased a $20 tile at the Open House. Does that mean it will not be displayed at Camarena? Only $50 tile donations will be displayed?

    Your tile will also be displayed. Sorry for the confusion. For anyone else reading this: All tiles bought will be displayed whether they were obtained in 50, 100, 150, or 200 dollar donations or just bought as a tile itself.Thank you for buying a tile DJ!


    We have not come up with a deadline to purchase yet. But the goal is to cut off sales in time that all tiles are decorated and returned to the school by the end of Fall break.
