Fundraising

    ​​​The PTO provides important funding for educational programs that benefit Douglass’ students and teachers in their classrooms, each day. 

     Douglass Elementary has one major fundraising campaign each school year. Our “Dollar-A-Day” is our direct-give campaign. We ask that you consider giving $1 per contact day- a suggested giving amount of $172 per student. Rather than selling products (gift wrap, cookie dough, magazines), the parent community can participate in fundraising and support the school, through this direct-give campaign.100% of the funds raised will be used in the classrooms THIS SCHOOL YEAR. These funds are used to pay for paraprofessional support, enhanced technologies, workbooks and other classroom support activities. Please consider participating in this year's fundraiser. Every donation, of any amount is always greatly appreciated.
