Heatherwood Middle School Fundraising
Each year, Heatherwood’s PTA raises funds for important educational items and experiences that enrich your student’s education at Heatherwood Middle School.
The PTA funds school events such as Assemblies & Programs, Field Day, the 8th grade moving on ceremony and party. In addition, HW PTA awards grants to Heatherwood each year. The last few years, we have awarded grants for classroom & library books; dictionaries & thesauri; books for the summer reading program; choir risers & a digital piano for music/choir; chair and instrument carts for band; educational equipment & software; resources for Special Education; PE & playground equipment; a new electronic reader board (coming eventually we hope!) and funding toward qualifying students’ planners, PE uniforms and online vocabulary program.
Heatherwood PTA is expanding the ways we raise funds to support our students’ education. Each Fall, the PTA holds its main fundraiser. In the Fall of 2014, we held our 1st straight donation fundraiser… no product sales! Because HW PTA is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization, donations to the PTA are tax deductible and are also eligible for Corporate Matching. HW PTA is part of Microsoft’s, Boeing’s and other employers’ Giving campaigns.
In addition, our fundraising efforts include alternative fundraising programs to earn ‘free money’, such as Dine-Out fundraisers at local restaurants, Fred Meyer Community Rewards, AmazonSmile, Boxtops for Education, Red Robin, eScrip (shopping at Bartell Drugs & the eScrip Online Mall and dining out at participating restaurants), and purchasing Sports Gear through GameTime Fundraisers. We encourage you to participate in any of the below programs. Every little bit helps! Thank you for your support!
