CULTURE OF GIVING THROUGH OCTOBER 1st.

 
Our annual Culture of Giving campaign will run through Friday, October 1, and is one of Roberts Elementary's primary fundraisers, contributing to 1/3 of the PTO Budget. Through your generous donations and tireless volunteerism, our children enjoy activities that set Roberts apart from other schools. Here are a few examples of how funds are used:
  • IB Membership 
  • Curriculum Enrichment
  • Professional Development 
  • Technology
  • Health & Safety
  • Building & Grounds 
While we know these are unprecedented times, we hope you will still give this year. In the past, donations have ranged from $5 to $5000 and any amount is welcome. Last year we raised almost $90,000 and this year we hope to do the same - to fund projects like new air filtration systems for our classrooms, remediation and intervention resources for our students, and/or ongoing maintenance for our grounds. 

Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the money you donate goes directly into the school. To maximize your donation, please also review your company’s Corporate Matching policy. 

PLEASE DONATE HERE.  
Roberts PTO is a non-profit 501c3. Tax ID number is 74-2198519.
