Dear Nuckols Farm Families,
Welcome to the 2018/19 school year! Your PTA is excited about the many events and programs we have planned for your children. To enhance these programs, we need your help. We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to contribute directly to NFES PTA through the Fox Fund, our largest fundraiser. For those of you who are new to the school, the Fox Fund allows parents to make an upfront donation to the PTA through our web site* in support of our annual operating budget.
The Fox Fund is an easy way to support the school, and there is no need for door-to-door product sales. All donations are 100% tax deductible and 100% of your donation goes directly to NFE PTA! If you work for a matching gifts company, you may even be able to double or triple your giving through its program. Or, ask your company’s human resources representative if they offer a matching program.
Last year we raised over $17,000 with a large percentage of families participating, and we would like to reach that goal again in the upcoming school year. Contributions to the Fox Fund are a critical component of the PTA budget - every child benefits directly from the PTA, and we would love for every family to contribute.
Please consider supporting our PTA this year with a 100% tax-deductible Fox Fund donation.
As a guideline we suggest giving $50 per child at NFE, but no amount is too large or too small!
As a thank you for your donation, each family will receive a 2018-19 NFE car magnet.
Here are just a few of the significant ways your students are impacted each year by the funds you contribute.
- Books for the Leveled Book Room
- 2 Promethean Boards for Classrooms
- Pioneer Valley Books
- Supplies for Staff meetings/ Professional Development
- Literacy Footprints and Materials for Small Group Guided Reading Instruction
Please consider joining us as we kick off another great school year by contributing to the Fox Fund! If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Rasmussen and Kate Bagwell. Thank you for making a thoughtful gift to the 2018-2019 NFE PTA Fox Fund.
