WDES Raised $28,750 through Race, Rock & Roar Champaign in 2017.
We depend on money raised through Race, Rock and Roar to help fund projects for our school.
TIME TO GET LOUD AND PROUD! Race, Rock & Roar is just around the corner! All students participate in this fun day of racing, rocking, and roaring with their class during the school day on Friday, October 19th, 2018 (rain date Friday, October 26th, 2018).
Race, Rock & Roar is part of our Capital Campaign to raise funds for our school’s needs. The Weddington Elementary PTO does not organize individual fundraising events (i.e selling magazines, wrapping paper, etc). As our primary fundraiser for the fall/winter semester, Race, Rock & Roar donations directly benefit WDES with 100% of the funds going back to the school and allows for school improvements that are above and beyond what can be covered in the annual school budget. More information on fundraising, prizes and Spirit week for this event was sent home in last week’s Monday folders. If you have any questions or need a new form, contact Risalyn Williams, VP of Sponsorship, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you work for a company that has an employee matching gift policy? Many employers such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America match their employees charitable contributions to 501(c)(3)organizations. Some companies match dollar for dollar but some will match more than the original donation. Also, some companies offer volunteer support programs dollars sometimes called “Dollars for Doers”. These programs reward employees who volunteer their time to a nonprofit organization. Please take a moment to find out if your company participates in any of these programs as our PTO is a 501(c)(3). If you’re not sure how to find out, please contact the PTO Treasurer, Tasha Hogue at email@example.com.
