About the “Big Give Envelope Drive”

and Walkathon 2019    

Supporting the PTA Annual Fund

Puesta del Sol PTA’s fall fundraising starts with the “Big Give Envelope Drive”, continues with the Scholastic Book Fair, and concludes with our annual Walkathon Fundraiser!

The PTA is seeking to raise $140,000 in direct donations. We are asking ALL families to participate to ensure our programs can continue.

“BIG GIVE” GOAL: To raise $100,000 (including corporate matching) for the PTA Annual Fund during the Big Give Envelope Drive! We LOVE our PTA student programs, Amity Interns, and our teachers!!  We need everyone’s help and participation.  

  • How Much?: Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 in the envelope drive to help fund this school year's PTA budget.  In order to make that possible, we are asking for $150 per student for the "Big Give".  Our students are worth it and so is our incredible staff.  We sincerely appreciate any amount, big or small, to improve our children's learning experience.  Let's help make every child's potential a reality!
  • Donation Timing:  You are welcome to donate at any time throughout the year, and it will truly help if you can donate all or make most of your donation during the “Big Give Envelope Drive” so the PTA can better plan for the next school year.  Your child will be sent home with a bright yellow envelope and donation form in early September.  We hope to see your yellow envelope!
  • Return your envelopes - Please send back your Big Give envelope by September 26th even if you donated online or chose not to donate at this time.  We have a classroom prize for the highest envelope return rate.
  • Corporate Matching:  One of the easiest ways to help is to engage your employer to match your donation.  Contact your employer after you donate and ask about matching!

 The classroom from each grade with the highest envelope return rate

will win a prize!

 *If you did not receive an envelope and donation form, that’s okay!  You can download a donation form.  We will accept envelopes of any color – just make sure to label with your child’s full name, teacher and grade.  You can also donate online.
